In the early 1980s he organized a Pikesville Armory bull roast to benefit Mount de Sales Academy of the Visitation, a Catonsville high school. He also ran its Christmas bazaars and spaghetti dinners.

"He had an inviting personality and a great commitment to keeping the school open," said the Rev. Michael J. Roach, Mount de Sales board president. "He backed it up with incredible hard work."

Mr. Haynes coached the Edmondson Little League in the 1960s and 1970s. He also was host of Westinghouse company crab feats and oyster roasts.

Kinzer of Catonsville and Ann Marie Waesche of Arbutus; three sisters, Patricia McNaney of Ellicott City, Helen Goebel of Catonsville and Mary Margaret Diehlman Scheeler of Catonsville; and two granddaughters.
