Claude Truett Hasley

WEATHERFORD — Claude Truett Hasley, 94, went home to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and to be with his wife, Virginia Thoma Hasley, “the love of my life,” on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2012.

Mr. Hasley was born in Weatherford on Nov. 22, 1917, to Lula Vie Moore and Urbe Edward Hasley. He graduated from the last class at the Pythian Home School, although he was not a resident there. Truett married Virginia Thoma Hasley on Nov. 10, 1940. They were married at the home of her parents, Lottie Jane and Otto Wald Thoma, near Sunshine Lake. Truett and Virginia lived in Weatherford for many years, moved to Fort Worth, and retired to Granbury. They were members of First Baptist Church in Granbury and when they moved back to Weatherford, they moved their membership back to North Side Baptist Church. Truett was a gentle, loving man who was firm in his Christian beliefs. His advice was, “Know God — always keep Him with you.” Granddaddy loved his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and they always considered him their hero. Nathan said of him, “He is the bravest man I ever met.” When asked why, he said, “He fought in the war and now he is fighting this illness.” Caitlan wrote, “I will live out your ‘love relentlessly’ attitude, and do my best to bring joy to everyone I meet, just like you did.” Daddy and Granddaddy died as he lived, in tune with the Lord and a Godly example to everyone. He was a Prayer Warrior and thanked God for his salvation daily. He loved his family and he prayed for them daily as well as others. Mr. Hasley served in World War II as an Electrician’s Mate Second Class (CB) SV6 USN. His stations were the Construction Battalion, Williamsburg, Virginia; Naval Repair Base, San Diego, California; and Okinawa, Japan and was honorably discharged on Jan. 5, 1946. Mr. Hasley was retired from GSA as an electrical foreman at the Federal Building in Fort Worth. He played the organ for his own enjoyment and was an avid gun collector.

Special thanks to Truett’s friends at Crescent Senior Center and Tarrant Dialysis Center, all of whom he loved and considered part of his family.

Truett was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Virginia; his parents, and his brother, Travis Leon Hasley.

He is survived by his son, Michael Truett Hasley and wife, Sharon; daughter, Sandra Jo Hasley Tanner and husband, Jerry Don; grandchildren, Tracy Lee Tanner, Jerry Christopher Tanner, Bradley Michael Hasley, Brian Paul Hasley and Jeffrey Sean Hasley; great-grandchildren, Daniel Jordan Tanner, Andrew Colin Tanner, Caitlan Elyse Tanner, Kyle Christopher Tanner, Brandon Michael Hasley, Dylan Paul Hasley, Zachary Conner Hasley, Nicholas Tyler Hasley, Daniel Sean Hasley, Nathan Charles Hasley; sisters-in-law, Patsy Ruth Thoma Brady and Jacqueline Ball Hasley; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.

A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28, at North Side Baptist Church, 910 N. Main, Weatherford Interment will be in Memory Gardens of the Valley.

Visitation is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at White’s Funeral Home, 130 Houston Avenue, Weatherford
