Mr. Haynie was born in Jackson, Mississippi and was a resident of Port Neches, Texas and Gulfport, Mississippi.  He graduated from Gulfport High School in 1959 and Mississippi State University in 1965. Mr. Haynie was employed at American Petrofina in Dallas, Texas and Sun Marine Terminals in Nederland, Texas until his retirement.  He was a member of First United Methodist Church in Gulfport, Mississippi. 

Mr. Haynie loved vintage aircraft, flying and anything that had to do with airplanes.  He received his pilot license while he was in the Air Force ROTC program at Mississippi State University.  Mr. Haynie attended air shows all over the country, and he flew many different types of airplanes over his lifetime.  He always had a copy of an Air Classics magazine nearby. Mr. Haynie was a proud member of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, Air Force Association, Commemorative Air Force-Mississippi Wing and Mustang Club of America.  Mr. Haynie loved classic cars especially his 1968 Mustang convertible-still in original condition and he also loved all his pets-dogs and cats. 

Mr. Haynie was preceded in death by his parents, Jeff and Eloise Haynie and premature son, Matthew Steve Haynie.
