Sydney Maxwell (Max) Haynes

Passed on: July 22nd, 2014

Formally of Ewings Road Conception Bay South and Masonic Park, Mount Pearl Born Oct 22, 1932 in Catalina, Bonavista Bay, he passed peacefully away surrounded by his loving family on July 22, 2014 at the Health Sciences Complex. Predeceased by his parents William and Anne, four brothers Wilf, Ran, Doug, and Gus, one sister Winnie, and his first wife and soul mate Minnie Grace (Oct 4, 2000). Leaving to celebrate his life with loving memories are his only daughter Judy (Gary Butler), and three sons Bill (Rita), Don (Ann), and Stephen (Diane). Also his nine beloved grandchildren - Heather, Bradley, Lauren (Lee Chaulk), Kirsten, Mitchell, Jessica, Victoria Grace, Olivia, and Gillian Grace. Also morning his loss is his second wife Marion and her daughter Phyllis (Don Budgen). He is survived by his twin brother Peter and older brother Harold (Dorothy), sister-in-laws Mae Gaulton, Olive Haynes, several nieces, nephews, and special family friend Ann Field (Howie Dunlop). Dad had a very active life starting with sports (hockey) and volunteer work later in life. After retirement from Clarke Steamships as a supervisor, he served as a counsellor for his ward on the CBS Town Council (1981 to 1985). In 1996, his many years of dedication and service to the St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church Men's Service Club and vestry were officially recognized. Throughout a significant portion of his adult life dad was an active, loyal, and dedicated freemason. He was a freemason for over 55 years and obtained the 32nd degree in Scottish Rite. In 1959, Lodge St. Andrew's became dad's mother lodge. Later in 1982 he became Master of Lodge Conception and in 1999 he became a proud member of Lodge Westmoorland. He was passionate about and held great respect for both jurisdictions within the province (The Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of Newfoundland and Labrador and the District Grand of Newfoundland and Labrador - Grand Lodge of Scottland). Also, dad was very active in Scottish Rite Freemasonry where he became the Thrice Puissant Grandmaster (TPGM) in 2005 and later the Commander-In-Chief (C-I-C) in 2009. On dad's behalf, both a Scottish Rite and a Masonic funeral have been requested. Dad was a gentle man whose winning smile, kind heart, and sense of humour will always be remembered. His greatest love was for his family, his friends, and the Masonic Fraternity. We gain great peace in a sound belief that dad has been reunited with his soul mate "mom" in heaven. Our thanks go to the nurses and doctor of 4 South A and Rosemore Home Care workers for making dad's final days comfortable. Resting at Carnell's Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road, on Wednesday, July 23 from 7-9 and Thursday, July 24 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral service will be held at St. John The Evangelist on Friday, July 25 at 2 p.m. Interment to follow at St. John The Evangelist cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation, St. John's or Toronto Sick Kids Foundation, Toronto, Ontario.
