The Eleventh Hour

Roy C. Haney

Roy Cleveland Haney started his journey to Heaven on February 22, 2015. He was born on December 19, 1925 in Charlottesville, the son of the late Charles Cleveland and Gladys Dowell Haney. He was also preceded in death by a sister, Phyllis Avery, and two brothers, Clyde and Roscoe Haney, all of Charlottesville. After serving in World War II, in both the European and Pacific Theatres, Roy returned to Charlottesville to continue his education at the Jefferson School of Commerce. He then began his long career in the automobile business, having operated Roy Haney Motor Company and Cavalier Cars of Charlottesville until his retirement in 1995. Roy was a devoted and loving husband and father and will be remembered for his integrity, unpretentious manner, kindness and generosity, love of children and animals, and wonderful sense of humor. The world has lost a beautiful person, but Heaven has gained one great soul.Roy was a life-long faithful member of the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, Hickory Hill, and had been involved in every aspect of its operation. He volunteered with the Alzheimer's Association, was a board member at the Charlottesville-Albemarle Tech Center, was a member of American Legion Post 74, 40/8 Affiliate of the American Legion, lifetime member of the Elk Lodge #389, and a member of the Virginia Student Aid Foundation. He was a loyal UVA Football fan and only missed two football games in 63 years. He was a member of Farmington Country Club and was an avid golfer. He always looked forward to playing with his best golf buddies, John Bazzarre, Jimmy Williams, Tonchie Vest and Jim Price. Roy is survived by his wife of 64 years, Ginny; a daughter, Lauren Paige Hall – whom he loved more than life itself – and her husband, Steve, of Midlothian. He is also survived by his sister, Louise Lewis, of Birmingham, Alabama; two brothers, Charles (Dot) Haney and Billy (Christine) Haney, both of Charlottesville; and, several nieces, nephews, great nieces, and great nephews. Memorial contributions may be made in Roy's memory to the Alzheimer's Association Central and Western Virginia, 1160 Pepsi Place, Suite 306, Charlottesville, VA 22901.
