Veteran of World War II. Enlisted in the United States Coast Guard in 1942. Son of Olsen and Mary Haviside. His grandparents came to California between 1861-1875 by wagon train and sailing ship. His paternal grandfather, John Joseph Haviside, Sr., founded the maritime business of Haviside Co. Ship Chandlers, in San Francisco in 1879. His maternal grandfather, John Heath Bonner, co-founded the town of Cedarville, California, in 1867.
Inurnment for Harry Heath Haviside will take place Memorial Day, May 27, 2001 in the Bonner Family plot in the Cedarville Cemetery. Mr. Haviside passed away in Pebble Beach, Calif. on January 31, 2001 at the age of 80.

Born April 26, 1921, he was the son of Olsen and Mary Bonner Haviside of Berkeley, Calif. and the grandson of John Heath Bonner and Elizabeth N. Bonner, the great grandson of Margaret E. Carter, the nephew of Charlie Lee Papst, all of Cedarville and Margaret Bonner Towler of Oakland. He enjoyed his early childhood days visiting Cedarville in the summers.

Harry graduated from Berkeley High School and attended the College of the Pacific and University of California at Berkeley. In 1942, he enlisted in the U.S. Coat Guard for service during World War II. He earned his California State Real Estate License after the war and was active in the Bay area counties for many years.

The early 1990's firestorm in the Berkeley and Oakland hills destroyed the Haviside home in Berkeley, where many century old books and records from the Bonner home in Cedarville, were lost. Harry moved to his summer home in Pebble Beach to be near family and to re-establish some of the family records and old photographs. Mr. Haviside kept in touch with daily life in Modoc County by subscribing to the Modoc County Record. He read with interest, about the activities and new in the county and kept in touch with friends in Cedarville and members of the Cressler family.

He is survived by his sister ... [survivors names omitted for privacy purposes]
