Celebration of Life for George J. Haaser, 84, of Baker will take place from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm Tuesday, September 5, 2023 at the Thee Garage in Baker.
George passed away August 31, 2023 at his home.
George Joseph Haaser the Second was born May 3, 1939, to AO & Dorthy Haaser. He grew up in Fort Smith, Arkansas, where he attended St. Anne's Catholic school, which instilled a deep faith in the lord. He spent his youth active in sports, and he especially loved football. George never missed a Dallas Cowboys game or the opportunity to talk about the Arkansas Razorbacks. After graduation, he attended Westark College.
He married his first love, Dianna Hume, and four beautiful daughters were born into this union. George spent the first half of his life in Arkansas working in sales.
He later worked in the oilfield, which took him throughout the Midwest. George decided to make Baker, MT, his home when he met a young, pretty blonde named Vicki Wood, who he made his wife. Together, they raised three daughters and his one and only son. After a few years, they returned to his hometown in Arkansas, where George started STAR salsa. They eventually made their way back to MT. George found the community of Baker to be most welcoming, making many friends who became family.
George lived a full life and, over the years, was many things to many people: a cowboy, biker, community Santa Claus, ordained minister, and a true good ole boy. He never met someone who didn't become a friend.
He was preceded in death by his father (AO), mother (Dorthy), his sister (Patsy), his brothers (Richard, Don, and Jack) and his beloved daughter (Hedi Mae).
He is survived by his brother Jimmy (Sharon Haaser), daughters, Libby Eoff (Robert), Sissy Drake(Steve), Georgia Cannon(Steve), Kathy Palmer, Stacy Gabel, Mariah Stone (Quentin), and his son Joey Haaser (Kayla). Twenty-four grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, special friends Leanne Losing, the entire Heiser family, and too many other friends to mention.
