I served in the Air Force.

Harry Glenn Haefner, 79, of Perry, Oklahoma passed away at his home on September 6, 2018. He was born on August 20, 1939 to Harry and Vannie (Parker) Haefner just northeast of Perry. Harry was born and raised in Perry and graduated from Perry High School in 1957.
After graduation he met the love of his life, Janice, and they instantly connected. They were married in 1963 and the rest is history. He joined the Airforce and served our country for 22 years before retiring. They moved around to various places due to his time in the service which worked out wonderfully because they both loved to travel. They were in California for quite some time and were stationed at Travis Airforce Base. While in California they had their first 2 children, Mike and Dawn Haefner. They later moved Albuquerque, New Mexico, where they had their youngest child, Peggy Haefner, and then moved to Arizona. The whole family packed up and stayed in England for about 3 years before moving back to Oklahoma.
After his retirement from the military, he decided to go to school in his late 40s. Harry attended Oklahoma State University and received his bachelor’s degree in agriculture economics. Upon graduation he became a financial planner for IFMAPPS at OSU for 17 years.
Harry was the kind of man that always stayed busy. He loved to read a good book and was intrigues by mysteries and history novels. He also enjoyed his time out at the farm raising his cattle and farming for wheat. He was a phenomenal cook and had a green thumb. He enjoyed gardening and being outdoors, but there was nothing he loved more than his family and friends. Harry was an All-American man and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Cherishing his memory are his wife, Janice Haefner; children, Mike Haefner of Sapulpa, Oklahoma, Dawn Kimmes of Stillwater, Oklahoma, and Peggy Tallman of Cushing, Oklahoma; sisters, Cindy Mills of Forth Worth, Texas, Ada of Nebraska, and Minnie Haefner of Sapulpa, Oklahoma; brother, William Haefner of Joshua, Texas; 10 grandchildren; and 7 great grandchildren
He is preceded in death by his sister, Bonnie Mitchell, and his brother, LeRoy Haefner.
Funeral services will be held at 1:00pm on Thursday, September 13, 2018 at the Stillwater Bible Church with Pastor JB officiating. Visitation will be held from 9:00am-8:00pm at Brown-Dugger Funeral Home in Perry, Oklahoma on Wednesday, September 12, 2018. Services have been entrusted to the care of Brown-Dugger Funeral Home.

    I was so sorry to hear of the loss of Harry. I knew him in high school, and then later he joined our squadron at Travis AFB. Sharing the flight deck of a military aircraft, I had the privilege of getting to know him quite well. He was a man of uncommon good humor and unquestioned patriotism. It was an honor to serve with him. My deepest sympathies are with his family.

    Harry will be missed by so many of us and especially by our family. We grew up a very close knit family and we love sharing tales on each other. Harry was a great man and was there for anyone who needed help, except when it came to auto mechanics; that was one territory that belonged to Leroy. He loved to laugh and we loved to laugh with him. I ask him for a list of all the places he had been to while active duty in the Air Force and I am so glad I did. What a surprise that was. Just more things I learned about my brother. I know he was battling some hard medical issues and now he is at peace but dog gone it I miss him so much. It is hard as heck to pack and get on the road. I wish everyone had had a family this close...it is just too precious. To Janice and the kids, I know you miss him so much but I know you are strong and will get through this at your own pace. We are all here for you. Love my family immensely. Ada

    My condolences to Janice and the family. I had the great privilege of working with Harry during my time with the IFMAPS program. I enjoyed talking with Harry about his time in the Air Force and his experiences working with Oklahoma farmers.
    May God Bless you with special memories to lift your broken hearts.
