Obituary for Ralph Wayne Hanvey

Ralph Wayne Haney, 78, passed away February 11, 2018, in Canyon Lake, Texas following a lengthy, courageous battle against illness. Wayne was born to Ralph and Velma McGehee Hanvey of Huntsville, Alabama on October 29, 1939. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Hazel Logan Hanvey, a son David (Merechel) of San Antonio, Texas, and two daughters, Donna and LIsa of Canyon Lake, Texas. Additionally, he is survived by nine grandchildren, and a sister, Theresa Fallwell of Katy, Texas. Numerous nieces and nephews also survive this favorite uncle.

Wayne grew up in Huntsville and New Market, Alabama. He was in the first graduating class of Buckhorn High School in 1959. Following graduation, he joined the Huntsville Fire Department where he served for ten years. He continued his career in the heating and air conditioning industry in Alabama and California, and moved to Texas upon retirement.

Wayne was active in his church where ever he lived and tenets of his faith were evidenced in community involvement. He was generous, kind, and quick to help anyone. His demeanor evidenced humor and concern for others even in very difficult personal circumstances.

In addition to loving his family and making the best peach ice cream ever, he was an avid fisherman and plied the waters of the Tennessee River and the lakes of northern Alabama. A youth spent on his McGehee grandparents’ farm translated into a lifelong love of gardening he shared with his wife. His passion for the Alabama Crimson Tide was unparalleled. No matter where he lived he followed his team and vigorously rooted for them. He also loved to travel and was ready to head out at a moment’s notice with love for his Alabama home beckoning him frequently.

Wayne was a man of excellent character who enjoyed life to the fullest. He will be sorely missed by family and friends. A celebration of his life, a memorial service, will be held on March 3, 2018, at 2:00 p.m., at the La Quinta Bluebonnet Room, 17650 Four Oaks Lane, Schertz, Texas 78154. Condolences may be sent to La Quinta or directly to the family.
