Obituary: Robert L. Haley – Portland Press Herald –

14November 2020

Robert L. Haley CASCO– Robert L. Haley, 72, passed away quietly at his home on Coffee Pond on Nov. 4, 2020.

Robert was born in Portland on Feb. 24, 1948, the son of Katherine C. Haley and Daniel T. Haley. He was proudly born and raised on Munjoy Hill. Robert was a graduate of Cheverus High School in the class of 1966.

Upon graduation Robert enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard. He served on the USCG Cutter Edisto WAG-284 and took a trip to the Arctic, almost making the Northeast passage. This was followed by the South American and Antarctic tour. Robert then was stationed as a lightkeeper on Goat Island Light (1969-1971) in Cape Porpoise.

Upon discharge from the USCG, Robert went to work as an independent representative with his daddy at the Daniel T. Haley Insurance Agency for many years. Robert continued in the insurance company with Maine Insurance provider and lastly on his own with the Robert L. Haley Agency with devoted partner, and buddy, Tammy Tanguay, in Gray. Robert retired on Oct. 16, 2020 after 50 years in the insurance coverage company.

Robert wed the love of his life, Patricia A. (Roy) Haley on Feb. 17, 1968. They raised three young boys, Jason, Aaron, and Seamus. Robert might be discovered on his boat nearly every weekend on the original “Patsy Ann” with the household in tow. Robert and his buddy Edgar Drew developed and constructed the second “Patsy Ann” starting in 1985 up until it was finally introduced in 2017. Some would state it was a clubhouse for Rob, Ed, and good friend and next-door neighbor, Dana Miles.

Robert leaves long-lasting buddies, Kevin Gildart (who had actually never missed the annual launching of the boat) and Marty Joyce his high school partner in criminal offense.

Robert will constantly be remembered as a married man, devoted friend, a dedicated pipe cigarette smoker, and most notably, a kind and respectable soul.

Robert was preceded by his wife, Patricia A. Haley in 2007; his moms and dads, Katherine and Daniel Haley; and brother-in-law, Warren Leonard.

He is survived by his siblings and sis, James Haley (Sandra) of Edgewater Fla., Daniel T. Haley Jr. (Connie) of Portland, Julie Leonard of Portland, Paul Haley of Fort Lauderdale Fla., and Timothy Haley of Stewart, Fla.; his children, Jason Haley (Anna Langlin) of Leeds, Aaron Haley (Jennifer) South Portland, Seamus Haley (Melissa) of Gray; grandchildren, Brandon, Kadi, Patrick, Megan, Shannon, Keegan, Liam, and Gavin; and his great-grandchild, Dahlia Brady; and numerous nieces and nephews; and extended family.
