Timothy Haseley

d. December 10, 2022


Timothy Wayne Haseley, 59 years old of Zionsville, IN, passed away unexpectedly on December 10th, 2022. He was comfortable and surrounded by family and loved ones in Pensacola, Florida, when he departed this earthly life.

Tim is survived by his wife; Kathleen Veit Haseley; his three children; Sean Haseley (wife Molly & daughter Mildred Patricia), Kristin Haseley, and Allison Powell (husband Bryan & son Donovan Joseph), as well as his three stepchildren; Chad Blankenship (wife Tara and three daughters; Ava, Reese & Emma), Nicole Blankenship, and Shawn Blankenship. Tim is also survived by his brother Paul Haseley (wife Doris; son Michael) and sister Nancy Haseley Nabholz (husband, Rich, and children Brad, Michelle & Aimee).

Tim is preceded in death by his parents; Herbert and Hazel (Ecker) Haseley, and his brothers; David and Carl Haseley (survived by sons Mark and Tony.)

Tim took on many different titles and roles in his life, Son, Brother, Dad, Grandpa, Husband, Stepdad, Uncle, Coach, Basketball Commentator, Golfer, Cyclist, Authority on all things Butler Basketball, Super-fan of his kids. No matter what title he was wearing, one thing was true; He was a Gentle Giant.

Being a 6’8” Indiana High School Basketball stand-out, Tim earned a scholarship to play at Butler University for coaches Joe Sexson and Nick Davis from 1981-1985. Tim was affectionately known as “Topper” around campus and by his amazing college friends. After graduation, Tim began working for Arthur Anderson before starting his family in Zionsville.

As Tim became a father, he learned to coach youth sports of all kinds. It was no doubt that his early coaching was the key to his children’s sports successes. From coaching Sean at the Jordan YMCA (who went on to play basketball at DePauw University) to continually watching Kristin foul out at the Boys & Girls Club (who went on to play soccer at IUPUI), he was there for it all; offering guidance and experience coated in love. He adored watching Allie find her stride in volleyball, and later in life, coach and teach. He often said that Allie reminded him of his own Mom, “Loves her kids, but takes no crap.” He instilled hard work in his kids, but never left any doubt that he loved them unconditionally. His grandchildren Donovan and Millie will grow-up to know his sporting spirit through their parents and aunts and will always know that their Grandpa is watching as their biggest fan.

Tim married his wife Kati in 2007 and instantly became a perfect piece of their family. He provided fatherly guidance when asked or needed, but as usual with Tim, he preferred to have fun. He enjoyed his deep conversations and banter with Shawn. As Chad and Tara began to have children, a new spark ignited in Tim as he got to experience being a grandfather. He will be remembered for his competitive and fun spirit, challenging his oldest granddaughters to backyard batting cage competitions, and enjoying rounds of golf with Chad. He always looked forward to visiting Destin, especially when Nicki was going to be there. To hear the two of them laugh together was enough to brighten any mood. Tim will be missed by the entire Veit family and his laughter will live on anytime there is a gathering.

In remembrance, and in honor of Tim’s love of Butler Basketball, his family is asking that all donations be sent to the Bulldog Club at Butler University . His family would like to invite you to a visitation on Sunday, December 18, 2022 from 9-11:00 AM, and funeral service beginning at 11 at Aaron-Ruben-Nelson Funeral Home, 11411 N. Michigan Road, Zionsville, IN 46077.
