Eddie Haynes

April 12, 1952 — October 3, 2021

Eddie Eugene Haynes of Williams Mountain, WV joined a host of loved ones in Heaven on October 3, 2021 after a long battle with many illnesses.

Eddie was born and raised on Williams Mountain, WV on April 12, 1952. Eddie assumed many roles over the years: daddy, son, coach, coalminer, teacher, grandpa, Poppy, uncle, cook, maid, nanny, nurse and last but not least...husband.

He is survived by his soulmate, Beverly Ann Haynes of Williams ; daughters, Heather Haynes also of Williams Mountain; Brandi (Mardy) Gunnoe of Bob White, WV; Melanie (Mark) Castle of Bigson, WV and daughter Kelsea (Logan) Cogar of Walkersville, WV.

Eddie was raised on Williams Mountain by the late Dolly Haynes. Also preceding him in death is his biological mother Gladys Haynes; aunt/sister Dottie Lou Haynes; nephew/brother Danny Lee Haynes; Aunt Dorothy Doles; and uncle Charles Haynes.

He was a hard worker who provided for his family by working at the coal prep plant in Prenter, WV. Anyone who knows Eddie knows that he liked to play just as hard as he worked. He collected race cars and models; guns and ammo; music and movies. He was always up for watching Chiller or scary movies with all the fixins' and all the cousins or grandchildren. More than anything, Ole'"Big Ed" loved to tell stories and reminisce about the past. He also loved music just as much! His love of classic cars coupled with his love for good movies led to many nights watching his favorite movie, "Dazed & Confused"

Eddie had been ill for many years. His first cancer diagnosis was 18 years ago and his latest was weeks ago. He suffered several types of cancer over the years. He gave his life to the Lord therefore he is now in Heaven rejoicing without any pain or sorrow. May we all find comfort in knowing that we shall all meet again someday on the God's golden shore.
