Obituary Condolences

WILLINGFORD, Conn. -- Edward E. Haley, 82, of Wallingford, formerly of Northford, died on Tuesday morning, July 19, 2005, at Masonic Healthcare Center in Wallingford, where he had been a patient since March.

Edward “Ted” Haley was born in Rhode Island on April 5, 1923, the son of Clarence and Helen Smith Haley. He was a graduate of Brown University and received masters and Ph.D. degrees in chemistry and physiology from the University of Rochester. Ted served in the Pacific Theater in World War II and until recently enjoyed traveling to annual reunions of his army unit throughout the U.S. For many years, he was the laboratory supervisor at West Haven Veterans Administration Hospital in West Haven, retiring in 1988.

In 1951, Ted married Evangeline Robertson of Lynchburg, Va. She died in 1980 following a long illness. In 1981, he married Jean Babbitt of Northford, who survives. In October 2004, they sold their Northford home and moved to Ashlar Village in Wallingford.

Among Ted’s many hobbies were reading, travel, gardening, experimenting with wine and bread recipes and music. His wonderful voice gave many years of enjoyment to the New Haven Chorale and particularly to the choir and congregation of Northford Congregational Church, of which he was a devoted member for 40 years. Ted never tired of learning and growing.

Ted, in addition to his wife, Jean, is survived by a daughter and son-in-law, Marcia and Paul Davis of Granby; two sons and daughters-in-law, David and Pat Haley of Bennington, Vt., and Malcolm and Ellen Jeanne Haley of Forest, Va.; two stepsons and their wives, Roger and Nancy Babbitt of Guilford and Doug and Carolyn Babbitt of Rutland, Vt.; and his four step-grandchildren. In addition to his first wife, Ted is predeceased by his sister, Betty Haley of Lexington, Ky.

Viewing will be held at North Haven Funeral Home, North Haven, from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, July 22, with the funeral planned for 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 23, at Northford Congregational Church. Burial will be in Northford Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to Northford Congregational Church or to a charity of one’s choice.
