“On Monday November 05, 2018 Mr. John Paul “J P” Haney 84, Retired Owner of Haney Convenience Store of Tulsa, Oklahoma has travel up the Kings Highway to meet his maker.

John was the apple of his mother’s eye. He was such a generous man. He was never idle, he was busy at all times. He loved working. As John became a young man, people started to refer to him as “Po P” and as time progressed he became known as “JP”.
