Obituary of Lance Haley

Lance Tyler Haley, Jr.

Lance Tyler Haley, Jr. age 11, a resident of Ft. Scott, Kansas, passed away Saturday, April 18, 2020.

He was born January 12, 2009, in Ft. Scott, the son of Lance T. Haley and Kayla Woodall Haley. He was born the oldest twin to brother, Mason at six months gestation. They were little miracle babies, not expected to survive, but against all odds, both boys pulled through.

Lance’s journey was a little more difficult than his brother’s, but his will to survive kept him here with us for eleven wonderful years. Lance loved to be outside. He loved being around people. He loved noises, dinosaurs and water.

He had the most precious smile and the best laugh that would light up the world around him. He was a very determined little boy. If he wanted to do something, he would do it. Little Lance had a spirit filled with innocence, joy and laughter. He touched many hearts and was a blessing to many. He will be forever missed.

Survivors include his parents, Lance and Kayla Haley; his brothers, Mason and Blaise Haley and his sister, Natalie Haley and his grandparents, John and Kimberly Woodall and Bill and Pamala Haley and his great-grandparents, Sylvia Woodall and Vernon and Linda Nordyke as well as several aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his great-grandparents, Larry Coleman, David Woodall, Maynard Coyle, Karrie Caruthers, Mary Nordyke, Beatrice Salters and Janice Younce.

Private burial will take place in the Evergreen Cemetery.
