Obituary for Hughlee N. Haley

Hughlee N. Haley was born on October 9, 1968 in Montclair, New Jersey to Laverne Haley Williams and the late Hughlee Bass. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Sylvester and Ora Haley and Julius Thomas and Mary Bell Bass.

Educated in the Montclair and East Orange school systems he graduated from Clifford J. Scott High School in East Orange, NJ in 1987. Hugh excelled in football and basketball. He pursued higher education at Upsala College in East Orange, NJ and most recently received a Peer Advocate Certification from the CCAR Recovery Coach Academy.

At an early age, Hugh accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour and was baptized in 1976 at the Union Baptist Church in Montclair.

Hugh was employed for many years as a driver for the Coca Cola Company. His infectious smile and swagger immediately drew people to him. Many strangers whom he happened to meet turned into lifelong friends! He loved helping people, which led him to his latest, and last, career choice: becoming a licensed car dealer. He chose this to help people less fortunate than himself who could not afford a dependable, yet affordable, vehicle. He also related that this was his way of “giving back” to the community.

In his spare time, Hughlee loved to cook. He always opened his home to family and friends to have a good time. He also liked to travel and take pictures. He willingly helped others and DID NOT talk about what he did for them. And please, do Not Mess With His Mother!

Hughlee’s footprints of laughter will forever be in our hearts. He departed this life on Sunday, August 25, 2019 and leaves to celebrate his life and cherish his memory his mother, Laverne Williams, daughter, Jazlyn Murray, son, Tamar Lawson, sisters, Kim Green and Shirley Daniels, two nieces, special cousins all raised together as sisters and brothers, a host of uncles and aunts, cousins, relatives, his boys (posse) and friends.
