George Malcom Haggart, 82, passed away on Monday, December 28, 2020 at the VA Hospital in Helena, MT. After enduring pain for several years with heart disease and cancer, His Lord Jesus relieved him from his pain and called him home.
George was born October 16, 1938 in Weehawken, New Jersey to Malcolm and Carrie Haggart. He now will join his Dad, Malcom, his mom, Carrie, his brother Buzz of New York and his brother, Jim of Pennsylvania. Jim was his closest friend, and they both endured health is-sues over the past few years. Jimmy recently passed and George said, “We will be together again soon,” after a dream he had which he shared with Jim prior to his passing.
He is survived by his sister, Dot, of Lacey, Washington and sister, Shirl, of Kinnelon, New Jersey and brother, Bill of New Jersey. His daughter, Kathy Lang of New Jersey and son, Kevin, wife, Shawn, and grandchildren, Dylan, Joey and Everly Haggart of Las Vegas, Nevada. Many step Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren. He is also survived by his nephew, Rob and wife, Tammy and their children Hannah and Mat-thew who all did different tasks to help make it possi-ble for George to stay in his home. A special thanks to his neighbors, Tony and Janice Hicks of Ovando who were always there to help George. Thank you for the love of the small town community of Ovando; many thanks to his Ovando neighbors, Ministers, store owners, and service delivery people who enabled him to be home. A community always taking time to stop by, visits send meals, treats and bring him anything he needed.
He is also survived by his ex-wife Heidi Haggart of Missoula who remained his friend through the years. His stepdaughters Sylvia Mikulski and Claudia Jackson .
The family would also like to thank the VA Hospital of Helena for their care and gen-uine love for their patients. The doctors, nurses and vol-unteers are the best.
