Obituary for H. Chaney Jr.

H.H. Chaney, Jr. went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on January 30, 2018, in Abilene, Texas, at the age of 93.

Funeral services will be at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, February 3, 2018, in North’s Memorial Chapel, 242 Orange St., Abilene, Texas, with burial following in Cedar Hill Cemetery, 1133 Cottonwood St. Visitation will be on Friday evening from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm in North’s Memorial Chapel.

H.H. Chaney, Jr. (Chaney) was born on August 24, 1924, in the family home on Elm Street in Abilene, Texas, to H. H. Chaney, Sr. and Mary Stella Maples Chaney. He lived in Abilene for most of his life with a short period of relocating to San Francisco and Houston to work in the shipyards during World War II. During that time in Houston, he met his wife Lenora Maureen Green. They were married on April 20, 1945, in Houston, Texas, and celebrated 72 years together.

After moving back to Abilene in 1955, Chaney and his brother Jack worked together in the concrete business for many years as H. H. Chaney Concrete Contractors, Inc., and later in life, his son, Bobby took over the business.

Chaney became a member of South Side Baptist Church in 1955, and served as a deacon, coach, Royal Ambassador Leader, nursery worker, bus driver, and on the building and grounds committee. He also traveled to Mexico with the youth group on mission trips for eight years. He loved coaching and watching his kids play Little League, Pony League, and Colt League baseball for many years, and attended every Abilene Cooper football game he could make until last year.

Chaney and Lenora were seasoned travelers in their motor home, vacationing throughout the United States and Canada. He also loved to spend time on his land in Callahan County. Many years ago, he initiated the Chaney Family Reunion which is still attended by about ninety family members each year at varying sites around Texas. The family refers to him by many names: H.H., Jr., Chaney, Uncle Bud, Uncle Chaney, Peepaw, Sonny, and Dad.

He is survived by daughter-in-law Norma Chaney of Houston, daughter Maureen Castleberry of Abilene, son Allen Chaney and wife Lynda Chaney of Abilene, son Bobby Chaney and wife Cindy of Abilene, daughter Tammy Parsons and husband Terry of Abilene, and a sister Betty Lou Bulloch of Corinth, Texas. He also has nine grandchildren, Christy, Cory, Courtney, Brandon, Natalie, Will, Jay, Austin and Faith, as well as ten great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Lenora, son Billy Stokes Chaney, his parents H. H. Chaney, Sr. and Stella Chaney, a brother Jack J. Chaney, and a sister Margaret Smith.
