Jimmy Gary Haney gained his wings Tuesday, August 16, 2016 at Baptist Memorial Hospital Golden Triangle in Columbus. He was on this earth 68 years, not nearly long enough for those who loved him. Cremation arrangements have been entrusted to Gunter & Peel Funeral Home and Memorial Crematory. Graveside services, with Rev. Daniel Dulaney officiating, will be Saturday, August 20, 2016 at 1:00 PM at Love Joy Cemetery, where his parents and sister are buried, in Beaverton, AL. The son of the late Bennie Midleton and Glenda Minor Haney, Gary was born November 10, 1947 in Beaverton, Al. He graduated from S.D. Lee Senior High School with the Class of 1965. He also attended East MS Community College. He retired from General Tire Rubber after almost twenty-five years of employment. He loved Ole Miss Football, which made his home a house divided when his daughter was at home (Go Dawgs). He also loved cars, corvettes being his favorite. His sense of humor will be greatly missed along with his tendency to pick up strays of all kinds. He lived a full life and was blessed more than most. He was ready to be pain-free and go to his Heavenly home. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by one of his sisters, Becky Diane Haney. He is survived by his daughter Heather Haney, Sheffield, AL, his son Ryan Haney, Hamilton, MS his sister and brother-in-law Tammy H. and Dave Dobbs of Cabot, AR, his grandchildren Coty Welch, Chelsey Pollard, and Skylar Elkins and his great-grandchildren Asher Welch and Linley Clair Pollard. His family would like to thank all friends who came to visit and for the many words and acts of kindness. Memorials may be made to the Columbus-Lowndes Humane Society, P.O Box 85, Columbus, MS 39703.
