Edgar Samuel Haffner Jr.

November 26, 1938 — October 12, 2022

Syracuse

Edgar S. Haffner Jr., known to most as Ed or Eddie, of Syracuse, passed away peacefully at Millers Merry Manor in Syracuse on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, at the age of 83.

Born on November 26, 1938, in Plainwell, Michigan, Ed was the son of Edgar Sr. and Hazel Haffner. He was a 1957 graduate of Plainwell High School and furthered his education by attending Western Michigan University where he received his bachelor’s degree in physics. Ed worked for many years with Franklin Electric, then with Dekko Heating Technologies as an engineer. On August 20, 1960, Ed was united in marriage to his sweetheart, Bonnie Kneprath. The two shared 62 years together.

Ed was very handy and a natural teacher. Being an engineer, he enjoyed taking things apart and learning how they were constructed. He taught friends and family how those things worked. He also had a love for the outdoors, going hunting and camping. Most of all, Ed loved his family. Spending time with family, especially with his kids and grandkids, was a true joy in his life.

Those who survive with broken hearts include his wife, Bonnie; children, Becky (Hank) Pernicka, Jeffrey (John Mesta) Haffner, Jon Haffner, Joel (Sarah) Haffner, and Brenda Haffner; eight grandchildren; one great grandchild; sisters, Barbara Nichols, Marion Swope, Virginia Glück, and Billy (Anna) Haffner; and two half-sisters, Ruth Ann and Grace Haffner. He is further survived by many extended family members and friends. He was preceded in passing by his brothers, Robert Haffner, Kenneth Haffner, John “Jack” Haffner, and Richard “Dick” Haffner.
