Mr. John E. Haine, 83, of Ellport passed away unexpectedly at his home on Thursday, May 23, 2019. Son of the late Harry and Amanda (Cable) Haine, brother of Don (Glenys) Haine, Dorothy Gunnett (deceased) and Marian Haine. Dear uncle, cousin, and friend to many. John grew up in Middle Lancaster where he attended a one room schoolhouse and later moved to Ellwood City, graduating in 1953 from Lincoln High School. He served his country in the U.S. Army from May 21, 1958 until May 6, 1960 and again from October 16, 1961 until August 7, 1962 with the Signal Corps. John was easy going and seemed to know everybody. His kindness and always friendly demeanor will be greatly missed.

He had worked as the manager of Park Lanes Bowling Alley for many years, and was an avid bowler having bowled a 300 game at Park Lanes. John was a member of the Ellwood City MOOSE Lodge #93, Fraternal Order of Eagles, DAV, Order of Owls, American Legion, and the Ellwood City Saxons Club.

    I got to know John from going to Carla’s diner. I knew him as “Cowboy”. I enjoyed many Saturdays having conversation with him, I feel blessed to have known him, even if for a short time.

    John came in to my work every Tuesday bringing our doctors clean lab coats! He was such a sweet, gentile man. We were all very shocked by his passing. I speak from all of us girls at Tri State Ob-Gyn when I say he will be deeply missed by many!
