Saw him as a kid in Miami. Mid-show, he was shuffled off to Homestead AFB to board a fighter that flew him to save a life with his blood. God bless you Bill.

Bill Haast was just the coolest person I can remember growing up. I went to Everglades Elementary School in Miami from 1965 to 1971 and I remember more than once a field trip to the Serpentarium. As we got older we would ride our bikes to the Serpentarium and Mr. Haast would treat us like we belonged allowing us to watch extractions and we would do small jobs around the place also. We loved snakes and lizards and stuff and Bill Haast was a great and wonderful mentor always piquing our curiosities. Gosh I remember watching him on Popeye's Playhouse. He was a really good guy and look forward to seeing him again when my time comes. I am very sorry for your loss but know it is heaven's gain.

My condolences to the family. I visited the Serpentarium in 1952 and enjoyed the visit. My son and his wife have two snakes and my other three boys brought home many a garter snake and kept them in a box in their room. I have no fear of harmless snakes and have handled many over the years. On my first visit Mr. Haast "milked" a snake for us and I developed a "crush" on him. I was 14 yrs. old then. Our paper had a story on Mr. Haast a year or so ago and I was happy to see he was still around. We will keep him in our prayers. He was a hero.
