He died Aug. 26, 2008, in Kosciusko of complications from multiple sclerosis. Burial with military honors will be in Lakeview Cemetery, Greenville. Haynes was born and raised in Charleston, and joined the U.S. Army after graduating from high school. While serving as a helicopter pilot, Haynes completed his associate of arts degree from St. Martin's College in Olympia, Wash. While in the Army, Haynes served two tours in Vietnam and was on the logistical development team for the Apache helicopter. He retired from the Army at the rank of chief warrant officer 4. Upon his retirement, Haynes moved to Greenville, where he joined the Greenville Police Department, serving for three years before leaving to fly helicopters offshore for the oil companies. He returned to Greenville in 1984 and became a member of the Washington County Sheriff's Department. He was forced to retire from the Sheriff's Department in 1993 after being diagnosed with chronic MS. At the time of his retirement, Haynes was a captain in the Investigative Division and was serving as the department's first arson investigator. From the time he graduated from school, Haynes served his country, either in the military or law enforcement. After retiring, he continued to serve by supporting the Washington County Anti-Drug Community Partnership. When the partnership formed the Mid-Delta Law Enforcement Coalition, Haynes cooked the group's first meal. What started as a group of five has grown to 30 or 40 law enforcement members attending each meeting. While serving at Ft. Lewis, Wash., Haynes was an active member of the Masons.
