HANEY, Harry Damon

August 22, 1948 – Lethbridge, Alberta
December 2, 2015 – Calgary, Alberta

Harry passed away peacefully on December 2, 2015 at the age of 67 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Harry was born in Lethbridge and lived in Picture Butte, Alberta until moving to Edmonton to attend the University of Alberta where he earned a B.Sc. Agriculture and an M.Sc. Agriculture Economics. Harry was a member of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity, a passion he shared with both his sons. Harry and Maureen were married in 1970 and moved to Picture Butte where Harry began a successful career in agriculture. From his early years as a partner in the family farming business (Picture Butte), followed by several years in agriculture consulting (Edmonton), then as owner of Independent Breeders Service (IBS) (Airdrie), he was a proud member of the Canadian agricultural community. Harry was appointed to the board of the Agriculture Financial Services Corporation (AFSC) in 2005. Following the sale of IBS in 2007, Harry served for six years as AFSC board chair until his retirement in 2013. Harry was actively involved in a variety of outside pursuits, most notably the Calgary Stampede International Agriculture Committee and Institute of Corporate Directors.

Harry and Maureen enjoyed international travel. In recent years, they spent more time on Vancouver Island. Harry had a special love of the family cabin on Shawnigan Lake where he and Maureen cherished great times with family and friends.

Harry had strong values of lifelong learning, determination and he motivated those around him to achieve. These values were especially evident during his cancer treatment as he learned about his disease, took ownership of his treatment and remained positive throughout. He will be greatly missed.

Harry is survived by his wife Maureen, with whom he celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary on November 14, 2015, daughter Shannon (Johnny), sons Patrick (Sandra) and Ryan (Victoria). Harry will be fondly remembered by his seven grandchildren to whom he was affectionately known as ‘Pops’; Cole, Tanner, Megan, Julian, Drew, Alex and Hugh.

“Those we love who pass away live on in us through our memories and character.”

A Celebration of Life will be held in Calgary, Alberta on Tuesday, December 15, 2015 at Spruce Meadows, Congress Hall, beginning at 2:00 pm. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to Lung Cancer Canada www.lungcancercanada.ca. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of ‘Pops’ Haney, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Park Memorial, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.

  10. My condolences to the family. I am a cancer survivor. And a little story about Harry. Some years ago there was pressure to build a new dam on the Oldman River. Those that apposed the dam said that of the one million acres of irrigation, 40 percent was in alfalfa or some other forage. So why build a dam to grow more forages. I remember Harry speaking at the conference and supporting the dam. His comment was alfalfa is used to feed dairy cows. Dairy cows produce milk for growing children. So I don’t apologise for growing quality alfalfa. That changed the whole tone of the conference.
