Claude Edward Haynes

December 18, 1940 — August 2, 2023

Claude Edward Haynes, 82, passed away peacefully on August 2, 2023, in Harlingen, Texas.  He was born to Fred and Elsie Haynes on December 18, 1940, in Harlingen, where he lived most of his life.

He proudly served his country in Korea as an Army Specialist (E-4).  He worked in the weight industry for most of his career, as both a business owner and consultant.  Most recently, he was with Weight and Test Solutions, where he finally retired. For nearly fifty years, Claude was very active in AA and was a sponsor to many.

An avid fisherman who shared his passion with his children and grandchildren, Claude was also known for his love of the Dallas Cowboys and his delicious barbeque brisket.  He was the happiest when surrounded by family and was one proud Pawpaw!  In his leisure time he enjoyed hunting and gambling.

Claude is preceded in death by his parents and siblings: Arthur, Jerry, Charles Haynes and Anna Lee Hailey.  Along with his children, Claude, John, Booger Haynes, and Jamie Hodes.

Left to treasure his memory is his loving wife, Olga Haynes; his children Claudette Clendennen, Jason Haynes (Geraldine), Chrystal Riccio (Domenick), David Haynes, Cindy Ramirez (Rick), Jesus Montemayor (Venesa).  As well as 18 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

The Haynes family will receive relatives and friends on Friday, August 4, 2023, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Buck Ashcraft Funeral Home in San Benito.  This includes a recitation of the Holy Rosary at 7:00p.m.  A funeral service will take place on Saturday, August 5, at 10:00 a.m. at Buck Ashcraft Funeral Home. Following the service, Claude will be laid to rest with military honors at Restlawn Memorial Park in La Feria.
