A memorial service will be held on Nov. 11, at the Phoenix (Ariz.) Christian Reformed Church for former Deer Park teacher Lloyd Haglund, 82.
Born on Aug. 12, 1929, to the late Bert and Eleanor Haglund in Warroad, Minn., he lived in various places in Minnesota until 1944 when his family moved to Spokane.
He graduated from Rogers High School in 1946 and later worked at Sears and served in the Air Force, in Fairbanks, Alaska. Mr. Haglund also did long haul trucking.
The Ellensburg Bulldogs will visit Deer Park to open the state Class 2A football playoffs at 1 p.m. on Saturday.
The Bulldogs (8-3), the fifth seed from District 5/6/7, defeated the Great Northern Leagueâ€™s Cheney Blackhawks 36-35 in overtime on Tuesday.
Ellensburg used the quarterbacking duo of Garrett Hull and Matt Bennett against the Blackhawks. Tailback J. Foley, who rushed for 79 yards against Cheney, handled most of the ground game duties.
For the Stags (9-1) it will be their first state playoff game at home since they hosted Cashmere in 2000.
