Mr. Haynes was a 20-year Air Force veteran, traveling the United States and world during military service. However, his heart never left the green hills of Pennsylvania and was happiest upon returning to the Emporium-area. He became a letter carrier, his "best job ever." His caring, outgoing personality endeared him to the people on his postal route. He loved exploring the outdoors, and hunting and fishing with family and friends. He was known for tending his massive garden and freely sharing the abundant produce.

For many years, he taught Sunday School and led Bible Study as a member of the First Baptist Church. He held office in the Odin Grange. He served on the board of the Portage Township Cemetery Association for many years.

Harry is survived by two daughters, Jane (Michael) Pierzga, Pennsylvania Furnace and Judy (Edward) Langsdale, Bedford, TX; four grandchildren: Nikki Foxx, Bryan Pierzga, Lindsay Langsdale & Jordan Lansdale; two sisters, Florence Rossman, Coudersport and Eleanor Sebring, Colorado Springs, CO.
