Brock Richard Haney (October 16, 1990 – February 4, 2016)

Lake Worth, FL - Formerly of Middletown, New York, Brock Richard Haney, a Middletown native, died unexpectedly on February 4, 2016, in West Palm Beach, Florida. He was 25. The son of Michael and Kym Haney, he was born on October 16, 1990, in Lowville, NY. Brock was currently working for L.A. Fitness in Lake Worth.

Brock is survived by his loving parents, Michael and Kym; his sister, Brittany; his brother, Barrett, and his loving nieces: Ava and Adalee, all at home in Middletown.

Brock's surviving family also includes his two grandmothers: Susanne Ferguson of Boynton Beach, Florida, and Marjorie Haney Hyde and her husband, Bud in Middletown, New York.

Brock is survived by several aunts, uncles, and cousins, along with even more extended family members and loving and caring friends.

Brock attended Goshen Christian School in Goshen, New York, and Chapel Field Christian High School in Pine Bush, New York. He graduated from Minisink Valley High School in 2009. In pursuit of his dream to become a pilot, he attended Everglades University in Sarasota, Florida.

While a student, Brock explored many interests, including track and field and cross-country running, drama, and music. Gifted with a sweet and talented voice, he sang in a variety of school programs, as well as coffee houses and churches. He even auditioned for the Fox television show, American Idol.

Brock enjoyed snowmobiling and yearly canoe trips in the Adirondacks in upstate New York. This time with his father and brother and uncles and cousins was something that Brock thoroughly enjoyed and looked forward to.

His love for God and for God's people led him to travel on several short-term mission trips with Touch the World. He served the Lord as a short-term missionary in Bolivia, South America, and Uganda, Africa.

The details and statistics included here can hardly describe Brock Haney appropriately. Brock was loved by many people. He unconsciously put other people before himself. It required no effort on his part to think of others first. He lit up any room he entered, just by walking into it. His smile was contagious.

Brock routinely would say “Love you more!” when talking to his family and friends. He was not one to say “Goodbye,” but rather, “See you later.” His family is grateful for the assurance that they are not saying “Goodbye,” but “See you later, Brock. Love you more.”
