Memorial service set for ex-WMC coach

July 18, 1996

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday in Western Maryland College's Baker Chapel for Charles Havens, a former athlete and longtime coach at Western Maryland, who died May 12.

Havens, who retired from WMC in 1956, also taught for 12 years in Carroll County public schools. He was well known for his

countywide efforts to establish youth recreational programs.

A native of Rome, N.Y., Havens transferred to Western Maryland from Colgate University in 1926 to play football for former Colgate coach Richard Harlow. He was named to the All-Maryland team in 1928 and in 1929 was captain of an undefeated team.

After a year of playing professional football, Havens returned to WMC as an assistant football coach and was named head coach in 1935. He spent 18 years at the helm of the football team to become one of the school's most successful coaches. His 1951 team was undefeated.

Charles Wallace Sr., Class of 1955, a retired United Methodist minister, and Ira Zepp, Class of 1952, WMC professor emeritus of religious studies, will officiate at the memorial service.
