Roland Haney

Roland Haney passed away quietly at home on September 26, 2011. Since planting roots in Richland in 1950, he was known to be kind and generous to friends and strangers who simply called him Haney. Born on March 11, 1928 in Caribou, Maine, Haney joined the Army in 1946, served bravely in the Korean War, and was honorably discharged while stationed at Camp Hanford, WA where he met and married Susie. Together they built businesses, first as a general contractor, followed by building, owning and operating the Stalag 13 Tavern and the Haney’s Inn in North Richland.

Haney was preceded in death by his wife of 57 years in 2007, Susie A. Haney, his parents Oswald & Gertrude Haney, and six siblings.

He is survived by his three children, daughter Jaye Cammann Jerry, son Thomas A. Haney Arlene, and son Roland Haney Jr Penny Jo, granddaughter Julie Morgan Cole, grandsons Thomas Haney Jr Mimi, Nickolas Haney Gen, and Nathan Haney, brother Oswald Haney, Jr, four sisters, Marie Young, Nina Obrikis, Gloria Clark, and Linda Cram, 3 great-grandaughters and 1 great-grandson.

The entire family extends heartfelt gratitude and a humble thank you to Haney’s sister-in-law, Janice Chunn and husband Malcom, for their selfless dedication to accommodate the needs of our father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and brother in his final years.

A Graveside Service will be held on Friday, September 30, 2011, 2:30 p.m. at Sunset Memorial Gardens, 915 By-Pass Highway, Richland, WA, followed by a reception at the on-site event center. Visitation on Thursday, the 29th from 5pm – 8pm will be at Einan’s Funeral Home in Richland.
