Kenneth "Ken" Haley Sr., 76, passed away in Hood River, Oregon the evening of April 15 with his daughter and eldest grandson at his side.

Ken was born during tough times in Chicago, Illinois on January 31, 1943. He left for California at 18 and joined the Army for a short time before settling in Destin, Florida where he worked hard to support his children. Life was simple. He had a humble approach to being a father, and taught his daughter and two sons to work hard and be independent.

The sudden loss at age 22 of his eldest son hit the family hard, but brought them even closer. His daughter went on to have three lovely children and start a professional career in healthcare. His other son went on to live a life of traveling, playing music, writing and farming.

Upon retiring he enjoyed listening to classical music, watching the news and cooking shows, and gardening with his granddaughter.

In 2016 Ken left the black water swamps of Florida to join his daughter and grandkids in Hood River, Oregon.
He is preceded in death by his son, D.J. Haley.

He is survived by his daughter, Amber Tantas of Hood River; his son, Kenneth Haley Jr. of Hawaii; his two grandsons, Austin and Brandon Batson of Hood River; his granddaughter, Kaitlynn Batson of Hawaii; and dear friend, Adrian Tantas of Freeport, FL.

Arrangements are under the direction of Anderson's Tribute Center (Funerals • Receptions • Cremations) 1401 Belmont Avenue, Hood River, Oregon 97031.

Dad there are no words to describe what you mean to me and my kids. My heart is completely broken not having you on this earth with me, but I’m happy you’re finally free! You’re with all your loved ones that went before you including your parents, uncle Danny countless friends but most importantly your son, DJ. Although we may grieve for you we also rejoice knowing you’re in perfect health enjoying the company of so many loved ones.
