It is with great sadness that we report the passing of well loved Ballard crab fisherman Arne Haugen on June 7. Haugen meant a great deal to many in the Ballard community and the local crab fishing industry.
Haugen was born in Norway in 1938 and eventually found his way to Ballard with his wife Judy. He was a prominent member of the Ballard community and will be missed by the many that knew him. “Arne, young at heart, and with a warm spirit made an impression on many. He is in the hearts and memories of the entire Ballard community,” wrote reader Tom Kluge, who emailed to inform us of Haugen’s passing.
