Born and raised in Arenac County, he was a veteran of the U.S. Army and was stationed in Korea. Later, he retired from Operating Engineers Local 324. An avid horse-lover and hunter, he also had a passion for the Detroit Tigers, but his greatest joy was his grandchildren, as he loved teasing them and assigning nicknames.

He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Veronica (Schlagel) Hiveley; his sons, Jeff and Darlene (LaBelle) Hiveley; Jim and Sharon (Haas) Hiveley, Jon and Hillary (Peck) Hiveley; a daughter, Jolene (Hiveley) and Bill Grusecki; his 12 grandchildren; his five great-grandchildren; and his many other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and six siblings.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the family. Cremation has taken place, and a celebration of his life will be held Saturday, June 10, 2017, at the St. John Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall in Au Gres. Visitation will take place from 1-2 p.m. followed immediately by a celebration ceremony. An online guest registry is available at www.bureshfuneralhomes.com.
