A Celebration of Life service will be held at 4:00 PM on Sunday, February 11, 2018 at Big Stevens Creek Baptist Church with Rev. Skip Meyers and Rev. Eric Bruton officiating.
Bill retired from E-Z-Go Textron as the 2nd Shift Superintendent with over 30 years. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping, and working with his hands.

He was a dedicated member of Big Stevens Creek Baptist Church. Bill never met a stranger. Of his 9 siblings he was the middle child. Though he had 2 children of his own, he willingly stepped into a fatherly role for many others.
Additional survivors include his daughters, Michele Annette Haynes and Angela Haynes Merchant and her husband James; one brother, Richard Haynes; four sisters, Frances Jackson, Martha Cox, Edna Muhar, and Laura Pardue; one incredible grandson, Jake Daniel Merchant; a host of nieces and nephews; two sisters-in-law, Betty Croy and Lynne Herlihy; and one brother-in-law, Edward Herlihy. He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles W. and Mary G. Haynes; and James Haynes
