Founder of Haven Homes and Calvary Baptist Church dies
The church and senior health care were very important to the Rev. Lester Fair. When the family came to Hastings more than 40 years ago, he started a church - Calvary Baptist Church (now Calvary Christian), and then a nursing home - Haven Homes (now Augustana Care Center ).
This past Saturday, July 11, Fair, 83, died at Augustana Care Center.
When Lester and Marie Fair moved to Hastings in 1967, he sensed the move would be permanent.
