Obituary of Harry Winnett Haynes
Haynes, Harry (Ted) Winnett - Born London, ON on March 27, 1936.

Harry was a University of Western Ontario graduate, a special education teacher, a scouter, a music lover and an avid amateur (ham) radio operator. In his youth, Harry proudly served in the 420 Snowy Owl Squadron RCAF, the 56 Field Regt. Royal Canadian Artillery and finally the 9 Signals Regt. He had a great joy for life which he balanced by his duty to to wife Kathleen and children. Harry cared deeply for people in his life and gave of himself whenever he could. Harry was never too busy or distracted to talk to anyone and freely shared his wisdom, experience and enthusiasm.
This untitled poem is a gift from his wife Kathleen;
The birds are flying
Between our homes,
Settling in our trees
Or on the lawns.
But they, like us,
Are only temporarily
On the surface of the earth.
One day their flight,
Although seemingly forever,
Will be over as our journeys
Here will reach the finish line
And we'll all become a part
Of memories and of the landscape
Beneath the soil.
Only Kodak can retain
A permanent likeness of our persons.
Ted's memory lives on in the hearts and souls of those he touched. He is not forgotten.
