Haser Sr. and Hazel Baldwin Haser Moore of New Kensington, Pa. He was raised by his father and stepmother, Josephine Zydel Haser. His aunt, Lyda Haser Custer, was also a very important part of his life. He was a loving brother to two sisters and four brothers: Shirley, Lyda, John, Woody, Jim, and Dave. Tom’s life was marked by a strong devotion to family and community. He is survived by his loving wife of 67 years, Freda Merritts Haser, and his children: Tom (Ace) Haser (Myerlann), Jo-Rae Bitar, Lori Cernell (Bob), and Sandy Carlaccini (Gregg). His greatest joys were his grandchildren: Joshua (Ashley), Brian, Lauren (Greg), Brittany, Jessica (Mike), Caitlin, Nicole, Cassidy, and Callie; and great-grandchildren: Madeline, Jace, Brayden, Logan, Miles, and Lucca.   Tom graduated with the Ken High class of ’51. He worked for Union Springs and later became the Executive Director of the Redevelopment Authority of New Kensington until retirement.   Both he and his wife were long-time members of the First Evangelical Lutheran Church of New Kensington.   He was a lifetime member of the Seventh Street Sportsmen’s Club, as well as the Loyal Order of Moose, Lodge #53, where he was a past governor.   Tom was an avid Pittsburgh sports fan, supporting the Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates.   A memorial service will be announced at a later date.   Arrangements entrusted to RJ Slater IV Funeral Home and Cremation Service, 1000 Freeport Road, New Kensington, PA. 724-335-0100.  Condolences can be made at

My condolences to the entire Haser Family. Tom was our Little League coach with Paul Pazul in early 1960s. Tom and I reunited in 1976 when, as a young man, I started working with him at the Redevelopment Authority for the next 9 years. He taught me so much, and was a great mentor to have as a young man. Tom gave me a certain piece of advice which I never forgot, and conveyed his message to my peers throughout my career as civil servant. He said to always make your best effort to try to help people. That was Mr. Haser! He tried to help people any way he could. He was a good man, a true gentleman. This world needs more people like Tom Haser. May his memory be eternal and God bless.

I grew up with the Haser family at the Terrace.  As a child, us kids were always impressed with how professional Tom was even with us.  He was always fair and very kind and a pleasure to know.  Knowing him for over 60 years, he was a person that I am glad to have known and sad to see him pass.  He can now rekindle his his new life with his Dashounds Lady and Cass.  Ace and the rest, You lost a great one. So, sorry.
