Birth: Sep. 7, 1898
Missouri, USA
Death: Oct. 22, 1918
British Columbia, Canada

Son of Charles R. and Ida L. Haas. According to military records, at the time of his death, his parents were living at Lynn Creek, North Vancouver.

The October 31, 1918 edition of the Salmon Arm Observer announced the death of Private Haas on Page 1:

"We much regret having to announce the death of Pte. J. L. Haas which took place at Vancouver on Tuesday, October 22nd, as a result of pneumonia following an attack of Spanish Influenza.

The late Pte. Haas at the time he was smitten with the dread disease was an orderly in the Shaughnessy Military Hospital and it is supposed that it was whilst acting in this capacity that he contracted the disease which ultimately was the cause of his death.

The body was embalmed and shipped to Salmon Arm, and was laid to rest on Tuesday in the Mount Ida cemetery, the Rev. J. D. Hobden conducting the funeral service.

Our sincerest sympathy is extended to all his relatives and friends who now mourn his loss."

Joel is buried next to his brother, Franklin W Haas
