He grew up outside of Menlo on the family farm and attended Menlo Schools graduating with the class of 1970. Following graduation, as a show of unity with other local boys he enlisted in the National Guard. Following his discharge he returned to the Menlo area and began farming with his family. He was skilled in both livestock production and row crop farming.

He mentored many youth in showing hogs on the 4-H circuit and was a longtime member of the Iowa Pork Producers, American Yorkshire Association and the US Swine Registry.
On May 16, 1991 he was united in marriage to Lynne Sienknecht and the couple made their home north of Casey. In his spare time, Haney enjoyed hunting deer and pheasant; attending hog shows and sales and going to watch Van Meter athletic events.
