Earle William “Bill” Haste, age 91, of Shelton entered into rest on Wednesday, May 26, 2021 at CT Hospice in Branford with his loving family by his side.

Bill was the devoted husband of 66 years to Anna (Witalis) Haste. Born in Bridgeport on March 10, 1930, son of the late Earle and Etta Mae (Delalley) Haste. He was raised in Bridgeport before moving to Stratford. In 1965, he and his wife moved to Shelton where they have resided for over 50 years.

Bill proudly served with the US Army and was stationed in Germany. He made a career in banking, working as Branch Manager of Connecticut National Bank in Huntington, People’s Bank Master Card Department in Bridgeport and Aspetuck Village in Huntington. Bill was a parishioner of St. Lawrence Church in Huntington and a former President of the Huntington Civitan Club. In his free time, he loved to tinker. He enjoyed painting, woodworking and going to the gym. Cooking and baking were also things he loved to do and share with his family. He always had a smile on his face and was quick with the jokes. Most of all, his family was very important to him. He was always there to help them, whether building a porch or painting a house. You could always count on him to lend a helping hand.

Bill was the loving father of Gary Haste and his wife Barbara of Seymour, Deborah Bonetti and her husband Barry of Southbury, Linda Haste of Maine and James Haste and his wife Kim of Oxford, loving grandfather of Kurt Haste-Love, Christopher Bonetti, Rebecca Bonetti, Ashley Haste, three great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. Bill was predeceased by his sisters Alma (Haste) Goranowski and Etta Mae (Haste) Larson.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the caring individuals at Smilow Cancer Center, Connecticut Hospice and everyone who graciously lended a hand in his time of need.

His funeral services are private.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions may be made in his name to Connecticut Hospice, 100 Double Beach Rd., Branford, CT 06405, or St. Vincent’s Swim Across the Sound, 2800 Main St., Bridgeport CT 06606,

Dear Gary, Deb, Linda and Jim,
I’m so sorry about your Dad. I will never forget the song he sang to me when I would come over for a visit: “Mares eat oats, does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy...”. He had a great sense of humor! May he rest in peace and God bless you during this most difficult time.

Thank-you for being such a wonderful grandfather to Ashley. You always gave her great advise. You were one of the few people that could hold her as a baby without her crying for her mama.
I will miss your jokes and delicious cheesecake.
Thanks for all the good times we had at your house during the holidays. You and my dad would have got along great. You will be missed by us all. With love, Barbara

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

So sorry for your loss,
The Gius Family
