Retired realtor, school teacher, dairy farmer and Trailways bus driver, Arthur Francis Haffey departed our world on March 24, 2021 at the age of 73, after an almost 5 year battle with glioblastoma brain cancer.
Arthur "Art or Buck" was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on July 1, 1947 to Arthur Joseph Haffey and Anna Mae Kromme Haffey. Art is survived by his devoted and loving wife Carol Wilburn Haffey; his son and son-in-law Arthur Travis Haffey and Ricardo Casas; his honorary children Norma, Gabriela, Elia nd Victor Casas; his siblings and their spouses David and Suzanne Haffey, Pat Ann and Tommy Brashier, Michael Haffey and Kevin Calvert; sister-in-law Betty Hopgood; as well as many wonderful nieces and nephews.
Art was a gregarious guy, known by all for loving a big laugh and a good joke. Most Sundays, he welcomed the entire congregation at the front doors of his beloved church, The First United Methodist Church of Red Oak. He absolutely loved to travel the United States by car (especially southern Utah). If not driving he and Carol in the car in Monument Valley, he was likely to be found landscaping his garden or performing his favorite activity of all--mowing the lawn. Art's laugh will be deeply missed.

The mission of the Glioblastoma Foundation is to transform the standard of care for glioblastoma. We support the development of new drugs and other effective therapies for glioblastoma. Because each glioblastoma is different, it is likely that no one drug will work for everyone, and any therapies for glioblastoma will need to be targeted. Glioblastoma Foundation supports the development of targeted therapies for glioblastoma.
