Roy W. Haney, 92, passed peacefully in his home on Wednesday evening, June 7, 2023, following an extended illness. He was surrounded by family at the time of his passing.  Born on July 18, 1930, in Kendallville, Indiana, the son of Banner Pierce and Cecil Pauline (Pooler) Haney, he has resided in Muncie since 1954. 

Roy graduated from Kendallville High School in 1948 and from Purdue University School of Pharmacy in 1953.  He also earned a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Purdue.  On January 13, 1951, Roy married his high school sweetheart and love of his life, Gloria Anne (Shippy) Haney; who preceded him in death on June 24, 2012. 

Mr. Haney was the owner of four Haney Pharmacies in Muncie, from 1955-1998; as well as diversifying into DME, Respiratory, Medical Supply, Infusion Care, and Long-Term Care, via Haney HealthCare Pharmacy & I.V. Care of East Central Indiana.  He passionately cared for his patients and customers, advocating for their best treatment and cutting-edge therapies.
