Burial services with military honors for retired Command Sgt. Maj. Elton W. “Pete” Haney, 80, of Copperas Cove will be held at 11 a.m. Oct. 25 at Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery.

Mr. Haney died Sept. 6, 2021. He was born April 1, 1941, in Cordell, Oklahoma.

Pete served his country for over 24 years in the Army, was passionate about hunting and fishing, a long standing member of the Rod & Gun Club, VFW, and DAV.

He enjoyed fish fries and barbecues with family and friends, but truly relished the opportunity to teach and help others be self-sufficient.
