Herrold F. Haynes, 90
Herrold F. Haynes went to be with the Lord on January 28, 2009 at the home of his son in Shalimar, FL, where he resided since 2007 after the death of his beloved wife Dorothy.

He worked for Olin Corporation for over 20 years before retiring in the early 70ís. He was a member of Stoney Mountain Baptist Church where he was actively involved in ministry. He devoted his life to Jesus Christ and was an encouragement to those who were blessed to know him.
Herrold enjoyed the outdoors and spent many hours gardening. He planted a variety of vegetables that family and friends greatly enjoyed. He also loved to hunt and fish and was able to venture on many such trips with his brothers and son. As a loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather he was known to be a little feisty and he took great pleasure in making his family laugh. He enjoyed traveling with his wife, daughter and other family friends.
