  • The passing of Kris Halverson


    I'm posting here today with the hope that someone knows my Cousin Kris.

    In life he was the proud owner of a Lotus 7 and attended events at tracks around the Bay Area.

    I have not yet had an opportunity to scrutinize the car in an attempt to identify its pedigree so I apologize in advance for the generic nature of this post.

    If any members of this site knew him I would appreciate an e-mail (clarkr AT scc DOT losrios DOT edu) if you'd be so kind.

    Here is his obituary . . .

    Kris Larson Halverson
    HALVERSON, Kris Larson
    Born in Albert Lea, Minn., on July 18, 1949, Kris Halverson died unexpectedly on November 28, 2007, at age 58. He had lived in Rancho Cordova since 1967, one of four sons of Nancy R. Halverson and the late Lt. Col. A.K. Halverson, who chose to retire here after 24 years in the military. Because he was part of an Air Force family, he lived in many places, including: Greenville, Miss; Wiesbaden AFB in Germany; Webb AFB in Big Spring, Texas; and Dyess AFB in Abilene, Texas. He was an avid sports car lover, following in the footsteps of his father who acquired a wrecked 1956 Porsche 1600 Speedster with a racing heritage and restored it. Kris was often seen driving around Rancho Cordova in his Sunbeam Tiger, Bug-Eyed Sprite, Triumph TR4, Olds Cutlass F85 and Lotus 7 Replica. He could also be found at the local drag strip racing his Olds. Kris was well known for customizing carburetors for fellow racers and friends. During the last years of his life he took good care of his mother who suffers from severe dementia. He is survived by his mother, Nancy and two brothers, Michael of Richardson, Texas, and Rex of Folsom, Calif. He was preceded in death by his father Alfred and his brother Dan. A private funeral service is planned at Fair Oaks Cemetery for family members.

      Didn't know him, but I am very sorry to learn of any 7 enthusiast passing. We lost another good one in NoCal earlier this year.

      I share your friends so. MN roots. We musta picked up the 7 thing in the water.
