Leo Haag was born August 7, 1929 on the family ranch near Fairfield, son of Nick and Monika (Keller) Haag. He was raised on the ranch and attended school in Belfield and later in Dickinson, earning his Teaching Certificate. He taught grades one through eight in country schools in the Manning and New Hradec areas.

While boarding at Pete and Ann Bullinger’s (Florence’s sister), he met Florence and they were married on December 27, 1951 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Dickinson. They farmed and ranched on the Samson place near Fayette for a couple years and then moved to Wolf’s Ranch east of Dickinson. Later they moved to Dickinson where he worked for Bosch Lumber and then he started his career in the dairy business with Queen City Dairy, Foremost Dairy and then with Cass Clay. After retirement, he drove school bus for ten years.

Because of his love of cattle, he purchased a feedlot east of Dickinson in 1979 and built a home in 1981. He raised feeder cattle until 2013.

Leo was a lifetime member of the Knights of Columbus, St. Anthony Club, Eagles, and also a member of the 7th Cavalry Drill Team. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, playing cards, traveling with Florence and spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

And as Leo would say, “Have a Schlook on me!”

Leo is survived by children, Gerald (Petrina), Dickinson, Mary Jane (Dick) Brown, Anchorage, Alaska, and Laurie (Wyatt) Godes, Palm City, Fla.; eight grandchildren, Lisa Oathout, Scott Brown, Justin (Heather) Haag, Jessica (Travis) Glick, Lee (Kailah) Haag, Kira (Will) Craig, Cassandra (Nick) Klingbeil, and Kayla (Cory) Van Effen; ten great-grandchildren; sister, Jean Stockert, Dickinson, brother, Ralph (Beverly) Haag, Dickinson; sister-in-law, Evelyn Haag, Dickinson; and numerous nieces and nephews.
