Michael Dennis Haag, 80, of New Smyrna Beach, FL, passed away Wednesday, August 25, 2021, at his home. Born in Detroit, Michigan to Maude Marian Flanagan Haag and Peter John Haag, he moved to the area in 2002 after living in Pennsylvania and then Connecticut.
Michael was a member of Gamma Rho fraternity and graduated from University of Detroit in 1967. He began his career at General Motors, then went on to work in logistics and supply chain management at Parke-Davis/Warner-Lambert/Pfizer, relocating several times as he advanced within the company. Michael retired from Pfizer in 2000 after serving as Executive Director of Logistics.
Michael was known for his generosity, integrity and gentle sense of humor. He was a quiet observer whose words, to his children (his ‘kiddos’) especially, carried great weight without a raised voice. He was a devoted husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather and great grandfather who will be missed by all. He and Mickey hosted countless gatherings over the years, creating memories and keeping family close.
Michael was a member of Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church in New Smyrna Beach.

(Rebecca) Haag of Sandpoint, ID; 2 daughters, Kathleen (Kip) Colpitts of Vernon, CT, and Karen Haag of Delray Beach, FL; 2 stepdaughters, Lisa (Brian) Tassinari of New Hartford, CT, and Chris (Bruce Goldetsky) Power of San Francisco, CA; a daughter-in-law, Dana Harris Power of Warrensburg, NY; 8 grandchildren, Eric, Kyle, Kelsie, Valerie, Jason, Emily, Stella, and Vivian; great granddaughter, Savannah; brother, Peter J. (Candace) Haag; and sister, Kathleen Stephan. He is also survived by many beloved nephews, nieces, and cousins, also his ‘kiddos.’
Michael was preceded in death by his parents; stepson, Geoffrey Clark Power; sister, Eileen Joyce Murphy; and his first wife, Mary E. Huston Haag.
