FINES CREEK — Hascue Lenard Haynes, 91, passed away on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013.

Hascue was born Jan. 1, 1922, to the late Henry Patterson and Tilda Payne Haynes.  His kindness and compassionate spirit touched the lives of many individuals throughout his life.  A strong spiritual walk was always a priority; sharing his personal witness with others along the way.

Haynes.  Other survivors include three grandchildren, Victor and Michael Haynes, and Melody Haynes Harrison (Jay); six great-grandchildren, Sara and Evan Flood, Dillon, Garrett, Lanae, and Austin Haynes; and one great-great-grandson, Spencer Ashbrook.  He is also survived by four nieces and one nephew.

Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29, in the Waynesville Chapel of Wells Funeral Home with Lenard Haynes and Captain Susie Graf officiating.  Music and songs will be provided by Betty Heatherly.

Burial will follow at Fines Creek Baptist Church Cemetery.  The family will receive friends from 12:30 until 2 p.m. prior to the service.  Serving as pallbearers will be Howard Messer, Johnny and Tim Ramsey, Victor and Michael Haynes, and Evan Flood.
