I Love You Dad. Till We Meet in Again In Our Own Little Corner of Heaven; Vaya Con Dios My Friend.

Bennie "Ben" Spencer Haley

On Sunday, October 8, 2006, Bennie Spencer Haley, 69, in spirit ascended to Heaven.

Ben enlisted in the U.S. Navy the day after his 17th birthday. He served on the USS Shangri-La, USS Midway and USS Saratoga. After serving 12 years through three different wars, he received his honorable discharge. He was recognized for serving his country with honor and devotion and answered the call through successful performance. Ben retired in 1998 as Director of Utilities at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi. He received several commendations and awards during the 42 years of federal service and provided an excellent example to those with whom he worked.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Charles Osa and Edna Spencer Haley of Choctaw, Oklahoma, four brothers, Tommy, Dennis, Mitchell and Jerry N. Haley and one sister Ottoma Haley Boevers.
He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Margaret Riffe Haley; sons, Anton Scott Haley (LeeAnn) and Gordon Dean Haley; two brothers, Charles (Doris) Haley, Chauncey (Lynn) Haley of Choctaw, Oklahoma; four grandchildren: Andrea Nicole, Anton Scott II, Brendan Andrew, Nathaniel Zacchaeus Haley and great grandchildren, Stephanie, Adam and Abel, many nieces and nephews and a host of friends.
Without a doubt, Ben Haley was most proud of his family and always put his family first. His love, unconditional, this kind of love that instilled confidence as a mainstay, a security blanket, and provider of family unity. He believed in his family. Simply put - you are the best Ben. Thank you, Grandpa.

Go on an ADVENTURE take the B BUS!

Go on an ADVENTURE take the B BUS!

9/14/2005 9:37 PM

Just got off the Bus! Pretty cool ride around the City. Good People, excellent security system, GPS monitoring and audio / video monitoring. For all who claim it is a waste I beg to differ. If more of us used it (even if just to cruise around) instead of taking a ride around town in our personal vehicles maybe all would appreciate especially with the GAS GOUGING! Half a Dollar and you dont need to worry about red lights, traffic citations, road rage, or putting 10 bucks in for 3.5 gallons or 30 to 50 miles. I dont know maybe we need to make it a stylish thing to do RIDE THE BUS? They dont serve drinks or food and you cannot smoke (if you are a smoker) on the other hand you breathe no second hand smoke (if you do not smoke). It was relaxing kind of like a sightseeing tour. Nobody (in the cars below) really ever notices you in the bus either. Some very productive blind observations are always at hand (if you study people). It was a relaxing ride if you are not specifically in a hurry to get somewhere. Try it out with your kids on a Saturday. Go on an ADVENTURE take the B BUS!
