Paul D. Haley Jr.

YARMOUTH – Paul D. Haley Jr., 57, of Farmington, the oldest child of Paul D. and Mary (Maxham) Haley, Sr., died Friday, June 21, 2019. A lifelong resident of Farmington, he was a 1980 graduate of Mt. Blue High School. In his younger years he enjoyed bowling and attended bowling tournaments throughout New England. He and his wife, Theresa, “Terrie” (DiStefano) had many happy hours attending drag races. Paul and his son, Ryan, have been working on restoring a 1956 Ford pickup truck that Ryan plans to finish and take to shows that he and his dad had planned to do together. Paul was a unique individual who touched many peoples’ lives, from life-long friendships with friends who become “chosen family”, such as Dan and Deb Seeley, to a team of co-workers with whom he had shared a 25 year career at Reed and Reed, to his willingness to always help someone in need. Qualities and characteristics that make him unforgettable are his often quiet, yet fun-loving ways, his ability to be a team player and strong work ethic, his contagious, infectious laughter and his dry, quick wit. As stated by a sister-in-law, “Paul lived his life the way he would want to be remembered.” In addition to his wife Terrie of 14 years, he is loved by his son Ryan (Hoss) and fiancé Hollie and her children, Taylor, Aspen, Hunter and Tabatha; his mother, Mary.
