Obituary -- Jeffrey Leroy Haley 1959-2016

Jeffrey Leroy Haley was born October 10, 1959 at Richards Gebaur FB, MO to Lola (Hibbs) Haley and Leland Haley and died unexpectedly October 16, 2016 at his home in Tulsa, OK. Jeff’s father was career Air Force, so Jeff moved a lot in the first years of his life, until the family settled in Lee’s Summit, MO in 1969. Many fun times were spent in Sheridan, MO while Jeff was growing up and into his later years, with his grandparents, family, and friends. Jeff graduated from Lee’s Summit High School in 1977 and retired from Kellogg in 2005. 

Jeff loved football and Nascar, and cheered on his Chiefs, OK Sooners, and the Bearcats that never disappointed him in sports. He loved his time in Sheridan, MO and loved to be outside. Jeff always had a setup with a TV outside to watch all the football games on the weekends and any race. Jeff was a friend to all animals and loved his pets dearly. He loved to play with kids of all ages, and kids loved him too. No matter where he lived, he quickly met his neighbors and made friends. 

When he could, Jeff flew an American flag and was supportive of the Armed Forces. We will remember him forever sitting outside, with a cat on his lap and a dog at his feet, listening to music, or watching a football game. 

Jeff was preceded in death by his father, Leland in 1985. Jeff is survived by his wife, Sharon; mother, Lola; sister, Patty (Richard) Bindel; Lori Haley; nieces, Andrea Haley and Megan (Jeff) Stilley; nephew, Matthew (Molly) Bindel; eight great nieces and nephews; special life-long friend, Jim Rider; his favorite uncle, Dobe; and many cousins and friends. His East Coast Haley cousins held a special place in his heart, and he enjoyed many fun times with them over the years. We love you always, Jeff. Visitation was from 6-8 pm Thursday, October 20, with a service Friday, October 21 at 10 am, at Langsford Funeral Home, Lee’s Summit, MO. Cremation and burial in Sheridan, MO at 11 am Saturday October 22. 

Donations in Jeff’s memory can be made to Sheridan Cemetery and sent to Linda Hibbs, 12691 Hwy 46, Sheridan, MO 64486 or to the City of Sheridan, MO.
