Walter O. Havens Jr., 85, passed away on Friday February 3, 2017. He was born in Sussex, N.J., on Nov. 28, 1931, to the late Walter O. Sr. and Bessie (nee Clark) Havens.

Walter was a fifth-generation dairy farmer in Wantage.

He is survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Dorothy (nee Hosking) Havens and his children, Tammy Havens of Sussex, Linda Havens-Mayer and her husband Charles Mayer of Yardley, Pa., Sherry Havens-Triano and her husband Robert Triano of Highland Lakes, Dr. Wade Havens, and his wife Dr. Jean Loveland of Hamburg, Pa., and his two grandchildren, Bryn Havens and Will Havens, his siblings, Marie Havens and Doug Havens of Sussex, and Beverly Hawk of Pittsburgh, Pa., along with many nieces and nephews.

Private burial services were held for the immediate family at Clove Cemetery. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Celebration of his Life at Sussex United Methodist Church 15 Bank Street, Sussex, N.J. at later time.
