Daniel Haley Obituary

Daniel C. Haley left us on April 3, 2023, after being diagnosed with cancer which he faced bravely at home after choosing not to accept treatment or hospitalization.

He preferred to live out his life at home rather than in a hospital where he could enjoy the land he loved and he could see the deer, turkeys, and other wildlife that gathered at his bird feed in his backyard. Dan enjoyed hunting, fishing, canoeing, motorcycle riding, and camping at the Oswego Speedway during classic weekend.

Dan was born in Oswego on June 16, 1961, and had attended Kingsford Park School, Oswego Middle School, and the Oswego High School.

He was a member of Laborers Local #214 for five years before moving to Geneva NY where he worked out of Laborers Local #103 for fifteen years.

He moved to Altmar NY in 2005 where he purchased his home and eighteen acres of woodland which he loved and enjoyed to the end.

Surviving are his brother, Robert Fantom of Altmar.

He was predeceased by his mother, Joyce Haley Jodway.

Dan was a very strong-willed and independent person whom Robert was proud to call his brother.

He was wild and fun and will be missed by all who knew him.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday from 12:00-12:30 at the Page Memorial Chapel at Riverside Cemetery with a service to follow at the Chapel at 12:30.

Burial will be in Riverside Cemetery.

Arrangements are in the care of the Dowdle Funeral Home.
