Condolence & Memory Journal

To Family & Friend:

Charles Stanely "Snake" Haynes better known during our childhood as "Charley Horse" due to his prowess on/off the playground. "Charley Horse" was a self taught 4th place state hurdler in track/field, tenacious defensive/offensive basketball player on Douglas High School dirt basketball court; at Higginsville High School & Trenton Junior College. I remember how fast Stan would easily learn to recite his parts in St. James A.M.E. Church youth Easter/Christmas Plays/pageants & then go play basketball. He was very creative/crafty making his sleighs slide faster than everyone else. He was instrumental building neighborhood pole vaulting pits for us off the creek banks we called the holler. Stan gave each of us the chore in digging caves during the cold winter days on the side of creek banks. All whom worked got the luxury to kept warm inside with a fire pit dug in the ground; building tree houses and introducing us to the horse weeds. Stan after his high years acquired the nickname "Snake" Haynes that his father Norman was called. He always had a niche how to inspire his cousins & brothers how to perfect their physical & intellectual abilities regardless what the subject may be with his "Professor Sam Duncan-like philosophies". Thank you for passing on what we call now as life-skills in fishing, hunting, camping & Boy Scouting to us young boys back in the day. I'll never forget him always making sure I was not in need of money or anything during my school breaks from college. He' always be an icon to his friends, cousins/other relatives and brothers Bob, Ronnie & Amiel He'll be deeply missed by Peggy and his children. Thank you Dear God for Cousin Charles Stanely Haynes.
