Obituary

J. O. Haney Jr. arrived on a cold Sunday morning January 27th, 1935 to John Oliver and Hester Weems Haney in the Luther community, north of Big Spring, TX.

In 1937 Johnnie and Hester opened the Luther Country Store on Texas HWY 669 in Big Spring. It was there J.O. developed skills to make change at an early age. He started school at age 6 and by the age of 11 started at Big Spring High School – graduating in 1950 at the age of 15. He then attended John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, where he would complete two years of college before his life was forever changed. Then that fateful day arrived – the meeting of Patricia Ann Snider in Bentonville, Arkansas June of 1952 at summer camp and his world was never the same. J. O. and Patricia Ann were married with parent's written permission on January 17th, 1953 both at the age of 17. Their union would last over 65 years until his passing on August 27th, 2018.

J. O. Haney Jr. is survived by his wife Patricia Ann Haney, daughter Patricia Jan Haney (Jan), son J. O. Haney III (Joey) and wife Cindy Haney, daughter Jenna Lisa Burns and husband Dan Burns, six grandchildren – Dana Lane Stanfield, Clinton John Haney, Kayla Ann Gresham, Garrett Thomas Haney, Krista Burns Veiga, Aaron Thomas Burns, and ten great grandchildren; brother Don Hal Haney and wife Judy and family. He is predeceased by his parents John Oliver and Hester Weems Haney.

He started a family, traveling around the country as a religious musician until settling in the San Antonio area in 1963 as the automotive manager at Sears & Roebuck Southside. In 1979 started Asphalt Maintenance Co of TX working with apartment complexes and strip centers for twenty-five years. J. O. retired in 2005 to reside in the ever-growing City of Bulverde.

His love for cars, travel, technology, and informing you on the latest ideas will be greatly missed. Never a dull conversation, you were always left with more knowledge than you needed to know and insight into your daily life. Traveling with his family over most of the continental United States in style – whether in a four door Studebaker or a 42ft bus – experiencing new places and meeting new people was always an adventure for him. His lifetime of stories and memories will live on thru the lives of his family and friends.

Friends and Family may visit Wednesday, September 5th from 6-8pm with the Memorial Service held on Thursday, September 6th at 2pm both at Porter Loring Mortuary North. Following after the Memorial service, a reception will be held Friendship Church Fellowship Hall located at 14015 San Pedro Ave.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to either two charities: St. Jude's Ranch for Children of Texas (SJRC) or the Battered Women and Children's Shelter of San Antonio.

Future gathering to remember J. O. Haney Jr. in Big Spring, TX at a later date.
