He was a son of the late Albert and Florence Lord Haag.

Robert's greatest joy in life was spending time with his lovely wife and family.

He was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, Pottsville.

He was preceded in death by a sister, Catherine Kiefer; and two brothers, George and Albert.

He is survived by his wife, Jean Marie Mistishun Haag, to whom he was married for 65 years; and two daughters, Sandra Lee Kramer and her husband, Elmer, Minersville, and Debra Jean Umbenhauer and her husband, Robert, Pottsville.
