Bruce Walter Haines

June 7, 1938 ~ November 6, 2023 (age 85) 85 Years Old



WOLCOTT- Bruce Walter Haines, 85, beloved husband of Maureen (Zegzdryn) Haines died peacefully at Waterbury Hospital on Monday, Nov. 6th.

Bruce was born in Haines Falls, NY on June 7, 1938, son of the late Arnold and Evelyn (Poole) Haines. He served in the US Coast Guard. He earned an Associate’s Degree from New Haven College. Next to his family, his career in law enforcement was his second love.  His career consisted of being a Trooper, (Bethany Barracks) Sargent, Master Sargent, Lieutenant, and Detective which was his favorite assignment.  Bruce culminated his career as Commander and Chief of Southbury Troop A.  

Bruce loved the outdoors, fishing, hiking, riding his motorcycle, golfing, playing cards, chopping wood and his loving family.  He had many friends and was always willing to lend them a hand, offer words of encouragement; and remained a truthful loyal friend to the end. Bruce also had a contagious laugh, which matched his witty sense of humor.  


Left to cherish and carry on his legacy are his wife Maureen of 62 years, his son Steven B. Haines and his companion Cathy Dwyer, his daughter Pamela D. Kelly and her husband Rob Kelly, his grandchildren Carissa and Jake Peckrul, his two brothers Richard and his wife Jill Haines, Robert and his wife Sarah Haines, and several nieces and nephews.

The Haines Family would like to thank the caring staff at The Village where Bruce was made comfortable during the last year and a half of his journey.
