Rollin's Story

BRUNSWICK - Rollin F. Haynes, 84, passed away on August 12, 2016 at his home surrounded by his loving family. Rollie was born on July 2, 1932 in Northampton, Massachusetts, the son of Charles H. and Marcia E. (Frey) Haynes. He graduated from Melrose (Mass.) High School before obtaining BA and MBA Degrees from Dartmouth College and The Amos Tuck School of Business respectively.

He earned two flying ratings while on active duty as an officer in the United States Air Force's Strategic Air Command at the end of the Korean War. While in flight school, he married Carolyn Caswell of Newtonville, Massachusetts, on June 18, 1955. Rollie and Carolyn made the decision to bring their family to Maine in 1962, living in Cape Elizabeth and Brewer, before moving to Brunswick in 1996. Living in Maine offered them the opportunities to sail, ski, hike and to play tennis and golf.

Mr. Haynes worked for Dead River Company for 20 years in Bangor and Portland before retiring as a Vice President in 1994. He was previously employed at Hannaford Bros. Company in South Portland as a Vice President and Director. During these years he served as a Trustee and Director of several institutions and corporations, including Eastern Maine Healthcare, The Greater Bangor Chamber of Commerce, and Merrill Trust Company. After retirement, he and Carolyn travelled extensively, and spent 16 winters in Naples, Florida.

Rollie is survived by his wife of 61 years, Carolyn; son Jeffrey T, Haynes of Franklin; daughter Kimberly Haynes and her husband David Znamierowski of South Harpswell; daughter Julia Paige and her husband Todd of Brunswick; a brother David Haynes of Yarmouth; six grandchildren; Michael and Christopher Haynes: Anne and Alison Znamierowski; and Katrina and Alexander Paige.
