Winston Spencer Haney

April 6, 1941 - March 22, 2004

"Tomorrow is another day" is what Winston used to say.

He lived his life to the fullest, everyday a new challenge and experience. He followed his dreams with his life partner and wife, Emily. They shared the joys of their children Glen and Cindy in

everything they did. Their life was spent together on the farm where Winston shared his life experiences and memories with his family and grandchildren Spencer, Karissa and Hillary. Papa, or sometimes Popsy, was always willing to share everything he had and to those who needed it. He was happiest when he was sharing his children's and grandchildren's joys with them or when he was in the fields making things grow. He loved everything in nature and spent his life enjoying the outdoors, whether it was cutting wood, making hay, walking fences or just watching the cows graze. Trucking was so much a part of his life and he enjoyed his time driving truck and chatting with his buds.

So proud and strong he touched the lives of everyone he met. We only wish we had more time to learn from his endless knowledge or share just one more cup of coffee at Vet's.

For now we won't say "Goodbye", only "See you later".

Winston leaves us today to join his mother Ada (Begg), father Lloyd Haney, and his father-in-law John Heidinga.

He is loved and will be missed most by his wife Emily, son Glen, daughter Cindy, their partners Sheri and Glen, grandson Spencer, and granddaughters Karissa and Hillary. He leaves behind his ten brothers and sisters Ev, Jerry, Viv, Margaret (Aime), Tom (Brenda), Wilf (Jeanette), Cecil (Lorna), Rick (Marybelle), Harold (Ester), and Keith, and many, many nieces and nephews. He also leaves his four sisters-in-law Jane (George Kovall), Elsie (Bill Dichazi), Shirley (Bill Sawchuck), and Sylvia (John Lugossy), and his mother-in-law Margaret Heidinga. He will be missed by so many friends.

Winston loved hockey, whether it was watching his children or grandchildren play or watching Hockey Night in Canada. In honour of his love for the game and in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Triple P.L.A.Y. (Positive Leisure Activities for Youth), P.O. Box 2913, Kenora

P9N 4C8. Triple PLAY is an organization that enables youth to participate in sports in our community.

A Celebration of Winston's life will be held Friday, March 26, 2004 at 2:00 p.m. at the Knox United Church.
