To John's family and friends, he was a great man and a hard worker. He taught me a lot about life. Also he would do anything for you. I will miss him dearly.

To John's family: John always had a kind word or observation in my frequent trips to the station. Old car talk, particularly about Imperials, was always just plain fun. Thank you for being a voice of Hales Corners, a source of local history, and an all around good man. You will be missed.

To the whole Haita family I wish to extend my deepest sympathies and prayers of peace during this sad time. Good fortune caused John and I to meet nearly 30 years ago. Working around and in the Village kept us in frequent contact. John was such a genuine and caring person that even the briefest of encounters never failed to leave me with a smile. The whole community was better off for him being active in it and the support he gave to the police department in particular was immeasurable. We all owe him a debt of gratitude. I pray that as he now rests in the arms of angels that we can honor him by living by the example he gave us. May God Bless you John!
