Dr. Haaren Albert Miklofsky (November 25, 1920-October 2, 2011) was born in Rochester, New York, on November 25th, 1920. With a lifelong passion for education, he took night classes to get a BS in Civil Engineering from George Washington University then got his MS and PhD from Yale. He taught at many universities, the last being the University of Arizona, where he retired as Professor Emeritus. He was a member of Civic Orchestra of Tucson on violin and Tucson Concert and Shrine bands on trumpet. Haaren directed three groups of his own: a dance band called The Rhythm Gang and most recently the Music Samplers, who gave him a musical send-off to a Sousa march. Haaren is survived by his wife, Esther Shannon, children, grandchildren, and a great-grandchild.
