James W. “Jimmy” Haberland completed his “Circle of Life.” Jimmy was
born, raised, and worked in the City of Glendale, California. Jimmy
was an Army Veteran.

Jimmy enjoyed riding his motorcycles. He would tell everyone, “I Ride
to Eat; Eat to Ride.” He was a member of the NRA, and strong supporter
of the Second Amendment. Throughout most of his adult life, Jimmy
participated in numerous fundraising/honor events such as Patriot
Guard Riders (PGR), Veterans’ Day Parade, The Love Ride, Downed
Officer, Toys for Tots, Los Angeles Mission, and the Mohave County
Sheriff's Department Volunteer Posse.

Before retiring to South Dakota, he would ride his motorcycle from
California to South Dakota every August to participate in the Annual
Sturgis Rally. After his retirement, he and his wife, Kathy, relocated
to Sturgis, South Dakota. Soon after, they joined the Sturgis South
Dakota Police Department’s, Volunteer In Police Services (VIPS). Jimmy
and his wife absolutely love the beauty of the Black Hills. While
living in South Dakota, they joined the Patriot Guard Riders (PGR). In
2017, Jimmy and Kathy moved to Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

Jimmy loves his family and friends. He is watching over us all. Heaven
has a new Angel. Jimmy would say to all of us, “Follow Your Dreams.”
He did.

Jimmy's request is that his ashes be spread by family and friends
across the USA. South Dakota, Patriot Guard Rider (PGR), Ride Captain,
Steve Dutton will honor Jimmy with his final ride. Steve will spread
some of his ashes all through the Beautiful Black Hills.
