Harold Orville Haines Jr.
January 26, 1937 – March 18, 2020
Harold Orville Haines, Jr. (Sonny), 83, of Eaton, passed away Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley. He was born January 26, 1937 in Benkelman, Nebraska to Opal and Harold Haines, Sr..
Harold graduated from Bird City High School, Bird City, Kansas. He started his working career from farming to the mining industry. He became a Shift Manager for Beaver Mesa Mining and Cotter Corporation. With the closing down of Uranium Mining, he became a Fuel Hauler and later operated his own upholstery shop. In retirement, he started a bait shop in his garage for the love of his favorite hobby, fishing. He attended the First Baptist Church in Lordsburg, New Mexico.
Harold enjoyed his family and friends through building a home and shop, fishing, boating, and bowling. He would always have a great story about growing up, working in the mines, and fishing (which we were all supposed to believe).
Harold is survived by children, Harold S. Haines and Kevin L. Cook both of Greeley, Colorado, and Tammie Wertenberger (Ric) of Eaton, Colorado; step-children, David Rhembrandt, Dan Rhembrandt (Betty), Duane Rhembrandt (Brenda) all of Chadron, Nebraska; brothers, Glen Haines of Lordsburg, New Mexico and Richard (Butch) Haines of Clifton, Colorado; nephew and niece, Buddy Haines and Kandi Mann; grandchildren, Stephen, Danielle, Courtney, Paige, Andy, Tiffnee, Richard, Michael, Jack, Robby, Casey, Stacy, Mallory, and Meradith; and great-grandchildren, Alexis, Kianna, Jalen, Aidan, Reid, Guy, Audrey, Chelsea, Coral, Mackenzie, Tameron, Dillan, Blake, Ryder, and Hunter.

He and grandma Sylva came to visit me in South Carolina around 15 years ago. It was a very special visit as I havn't been able to meet hardly anyone on that side of my family since I was too young to remember. He was so laid back with so much happiness inside and I can't get his smile out of my head. Thanks to grandma Sylva, I have a family tree book that she made and sent so that I would know this side of my family better. I also have a quilt she made for me when I was a toddler. I keep it clean and safe in hopes of having children to pass it on and carry on the Rhembrandt name and legacy. You will be missed grandpa. I will see you when my time comes. Love....
