Garlin Haley went to be with his Lord and Savior on Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2018 at home in Seguin surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Dale Texas to Clara and John Thomas Haley on Jan. 27, 1943.
Garlin was an amazing provider, husband, father, and Paw Paw. He was always the life of the party, the person who could walk in to a room and not know stranger. He loved telling his stories about the 40 plus years he spent working in the oil field and as a truck driver. His love for old country music would keep him on the dance floor all night. At any given moment you could find him on his zero turn mower or helping others in need. He always had a positive outlook on life even up to the last day he spent on this earth. He had a huge heart and loved everyone.
He is survived by his loving wife Ruth Haley of 48 years, son John Garlin Haley and wife Kimberly of Cost ,Tx, daughters Donna Haley of Seguin, and Lisa Haley-Lamza of Kosciusko, Tx and loving niece Kerrie Gore and husband Timothy Gore of Danbury, loving brother in law Robert Staton of Seguin, nine grandchildren and five great grandchildren, brother Marlin Haley and sister Elizabeth Holder and many nieces and nephews whom he adored more than life itself.
He is preceded in death by his parents, brother Alvin Haley and sister Mary Lee Schawe.
