While at MSUM he was worked at the university radio station, KSUM. During his last year he was Station Manager.

Chris worked for Target in Fargo for a number of years until health issues forced his return to Winnipeg. He enjoyed time spent with the Society of Manitobans with Disabilities (SMD) Recreation Program. Music was Chris' life and he enjoyed all types of music.

Chris was proud of both his Canadian and American citizenship as well as his Scandinavian ancestry. From birth Chris faced medical challenges which he met with courage and dignity. He had a positive disposition and never complained about the obstacles and setbacks he faced. He was a young man of great courage and faith who was deeply loved and will be sadly missed.

The last months of his life he lived at Actionmarguerite (Taché) where he received wonderful care. The family wishes to thank everyone at Actionmarguerite for their love and support.

Chris is survived by his parents Kent and Diane Haugen of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Detroit Lakes Minnesota, USA and formally of The Pas, Manitoba, Canada. Eric Haugen of West Fargo, North Dakota, USA and Kari (John) Thorson of Arthur, North Dakota, USA. Numerous aunts, uncles and cousins in the United States.
