Robert Stanley Haysey was born February 22, 1933 in Calgary, Alberta to Robert and Mary Haysey. He died in Kerrobert, Saskatchewan, June 18, 2017 at the age of 84.
His sister Norma was born November 4, 1934 in Calgary, Alberta. Her and her husband Allan live in California.
Bob and Norma hung out and had fun riding, fishing and shooting at bottles on the hill not far from their home. She used to help him with his paper route as well.
Bob headed of for a bit to Rocky Mountain House before he started his apprenticeship with the CPR to become a machinist. He finished his apprenticeship before he married mom.
Bob married Arlene Olive Moss May 17, 1958. A year later Garth was born in April 1959 and Kerry was born the following year in June. Bob also joined the R.C.A.F. in 1960. Robin was born the following year in Mont Apica, Quebec where we were stationed before heading overseas in 1962. Heidi was born in Germany that November. We also lived in Metz, France.
We headed back to Canada in 1966 to Dana, Saskatchewan. From there we headed to Val D’Or, Quebec where Michelle was born in June of 1970. We then moved to North Bay, Ontario where Brett was born in November 1974. Dad and Mom and the 4 younger children moved to Comox, BC in 1978. Garth moved west a year later. Dad and mom and the 2 youngest moved to Alsask in 1980 and dad retired from the Air Force in December 1982 with the rank of Warrant Officer.
Bob was stationed in Alert twice (6 months each time) and also in Lowther for two years. We did not go with him to these postings.
He continued to take various courses while in the military. He also helped with search and rescue when we were down east.
Bob enjoyed visiting with friends, instant coffee, fishing, hunting, riding motorcycles, riding horses, truck driving and reading. He was a cub and scout leader and would help mom with the teaching of survival skills to her guides.
Bob played hockey, baseball, and soccer. He coached the boys throughout the years. He also enjoyed water sports and after being hurt insisted we wear a full lifejacket as life belts didn’t work well when you were hurt.
He watched Hockey Night in Canada and He also watched baseball. At least back then the hockey season and baseball/football season didn’t overlap.
Dad belonged to the Coleville Legion for over 20 years.
Dad got his little girl Scooter and when we visited outside Tim Hortons she would run around on the cover on the truck. She would steal food out of your hand if you weren’t careful so I heard.
Dad missed her when he went into the hospital and then to LTC. Holly would bring Scooter up to see Bob which made him happy. He missed her.
Bob was predeceased by his Father and Mother, his wife Arlene and his grandson Adam. He is survived by his children, Garth Haysey, Kerry Hammel (Vern), Robin Haysey, Heidi (Cal), Michelle Sportak (Randy), and Betty Haysey. His sister Norma Hamberg (Allan) and his Aunt Pauline, his many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews and other relatives.
The Honourary Pallbearers are all the people that shared in Bob’s life.
We would like to thank the Coleville Legion for doing Dad’s service and heling him out when it was needed. We would also like to thank everyone else that helped dad when he needed it. We would like to thank the staff at the Kerrobert Integrated Health Centre for their care and attention. Also, a thank you to Holly for taking Scooter and giving her a loving home.
