Joseph Delbert Haener, 41, died Tuesday, Aug. 16, in a motor vehicle accident at the entrance of the family farm in Aurora. The funeral will be held at 11 a.m., Tuesday Aug. 23, at St. Luke Catholic Church in Woodburn. The rosary starts at 10:30 a.m., also at the church. The burial will follow at Calvary Cemetery in Mount Angel.

Joe was born Jan. 1, 1981, in Portland. He attended St. Luke School in Woodburn, LaSalle High School in Milwaukie, and the University of Oregon in Eugene.

He was an accomplished drummer and musician and traveled the world with numerous bands. He played drums most recently at a concert for his soon-to-be wife, Shannon Shaw. He was elated to drum in concert for Toody, the lead of legendary punk band Dead Moon.

Joe spent the last 15 years running the family farm with his brother and dad. He could often be spotted on a four-wheeler, trailed by a huge cloud of dust. Joe was unlike anyone else, full of so much life and love. He was nothing but authentic and always saw the best in everyone. He was the kindest, sweetest, most generous soul who appreciated friends, family, farming and music.

Joe was a passionate collector of vinyl and a true audiophile. He loved sharing his music treasures with friends in the form of meticulously arranged custom-mixed tapes.

Joe was a fantastic cook and baker. He was spectacular at charades and despite his quiet demeanor was super-competitive at game nights. Joe excitedly cheered on many of his favorite sports teams, but he loved his Trail Blazers and was a fan through thick and thin.

Joe is survived by his mom and dad, Delbert and Nannett, his four siblings, Malinda, Danny, Sarah and Beth, and his grandmother Beverly Dunn. Joe is also survived by his fiancé, Shannon Shaw, whom he planned to marry in November. Joe will also be greatly missed by his seven nieces and nephews. They absolutely adored their rockstar Uncle Joe.
