Meredith “J.R.” Haines, age 82 of Shawnee Hills, passed away Thursday, March 14, 2013 at Grady Memorial Hospital.

The son of the late Meredith Sr. and Hinda P. (Swanson) Haines, he was born on September 8, 1930 in Hillsboro. He moved to the Shawnee Hills area 32 year ago from Dayton. J.R. retired as a mixer with the Wonder Bread Company.

A devoted member of the Highpoint Nazarene Church, he was a kind caring man. Friendly in nature, he enjoyed fishing, gardening, and in his words “loafing around”. Over the years he provided well for his family and was not only a good man, but a better husband.

Cutting grass, tilling the garden, and serving the Lord brought him great joy.

He is survived by his beloved wife; Cinderella “Cindy” (Johnson), sons: Earl Haines of Beaver Creek, Danny L. Haines of Dayton, James E. (Cindy) Haines of Huber Heights, daughters: Cathy L. Hortshorn of Beaver Creek, Belinda C. (Kyle) Hansard of Andersonville, TN, 11 Grandchildren, numerous great-grandchildren, and sister Ethel Pauline Haines of Green Bay, WI.

He was also preceded in death by his grand-daughter Holly Lee.
