Obituary For Jeffrey Haney,

Master Jeffrey Brian Haney, Jr., age 9, of Carrollton, Georgia passed away Sunday, July 13, 2014. He was born November 10, 2004 in Carrollton, Georgia, the son of Mr. Jeffrey Brian Haney, Sr. and Mrs. Lindy Morris Haney. He would be entering the fourth grade at Roopville Elementary this fall. From a young age, Jeffrey shared his father’s love of all things “sports and aviation-related.” At the age of four, he started playing football, baseball and basketball with his father as his coach. An avid Auburn football fan, he enjoyed attending Auburn Football games and dreamed of playing football at Auburn University. Jeffrey also considered himself a proud Central Lion, playing on the Central Lions team for the Carroll County Recreation Department, and having recently attended the Central High School Football Camp. He also loved flying regularly with his father and grandfather. On his eighth birthday his one wish was to fly over Jordan-Hare Stadium at Auburn University. Jeffrey loved to be outside – playing with his dogs, go-carting, “mudding” and practicing his athletic skills. But, he also loved PlayStation and his video games, always looking for a chance to play with his father, his sisters, Elizabeth and Allison, brother, Jackson and his friends, whoever was willing to take up the challenge. Jeffrey shared with the rest of his family a passion for the magic of Disney. The family traveled regularly to Disney World and Jeffrey especially enjoyed staying at Fort Wilderness, where he could ride bikes and swim after visiting the theme parks. He loved the “late night extended hours,” riding rides until they kicked him out. Above all, he loved meeting new people, and by all accounts, “never met a stranger.” Jeffrey’s sunny disposition, pleasant outlook and general happy nature made him an absolute pleasure to be around. Jeffrey had an open heart and loved everyone. An affectionate child, he gave his hugs freely and always came back for one more. Jeffrey was a member of Midway Baptist Church; and, as the child of the Preschool Director, Jeffrey was very active in the children’s ministry. He loved the children’s church services and his Sunday School class. He is survived by his loving parents, Jeff and Lindy Morris Haney of Carrollton; two sisters, Elizabeth Victoria Haney and Allison Leigh Haney; one brother, Jackson Robert Haney; maternal grandparents, Bob and Renee Moon Morris of Dallas, Georgia, paternal grandmother, Margaret Brannon Haney of Carrollton; maternal great-grandmother, Wilma Moon of Marietta, several aunts and uncles, a number of cousins, great aunts, and great-uncles.
