Arthur (Art) Haynes

May 14, 1941 to March 1, 2020


It is with great sadness, that the family of Art Haynes, announce his passing, on Sunday March 1st, 2020 at the Health Sciences Centre, in the presence of his loved ones. Art put up a good fight in hospital for 2 months. He wanted nothing more than to get better and walk out of there. Unfortunately, that never happened. Many hearts have been broken with his passing.

Predeceased by his mother Nellie Haynes and brother Greg. Leaving to mourn, his devoted wife and soulmate Deborah Noseworthy, his children Arthur (Jennifer), Maria, Diana, Bill; his stepchildren Danica (Dave – his very dear friend) Crewe, Brad (Holly) Moore. His precious grandchildren Annabelle, Benjamin, Bradyn, Brody and Coby; his little buddy Shiloh. Siblings Bob, Judd (Toni), Wayne (Patsy), Madonna, Sisters in-law Pat Haynes, Trudy (Barry) Jones, Bev Noseworthy (Gerard Horan), Brother in-law Rick (Sally) Noseworthy, mother in-law Bernice Noseworthy. His nieces and nephews. His best friend (and honorary brother) Gary Tilley; Janet & Glen Lochte- special friends in Texas. Art also had a large extended family whom he enjoyed great times and many a happy hour with over the summer in Bryant’s Cove.

Art was well known in the furniture business both as a top salesman and owner of Haynes Furniture and Downhome Furniture. For over 50 years, Art played saxophone with Rock & Roll bands such as the Ducats, the Art Haynes Combo, Center Stage and many others. Art had a personality larger than life with his many stories and jokes to fit any occasion. He and Debbie shared their passion for music and loved to dance, especially the Jive.

His family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to the HSC cardiology and nephrology depts. as well as the nursing staff on 5 South A, especially Amanda and John, and the nurses in CCU, particularly Kim, Danielle, Caroline and Colin, for their kind and compassionate care during his stay in hospital.

My heart felt sympathy to the Haynes family on Arts passing.. my thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

I met Art many years ago when he was in the furniture business. He became a customer of mine for years after that when I worked at The Act Three Restaurant as it’s MaitreD’. Art was a great guy who was full of life and could light up a room in seconds. Always friendly and approachable. He will be missed.
Rest in peace my friend.

Debbie: So sorry to hear of your loss! Kev and I send our deepest condolences. Terry and Kev Sharpe

Arthur, Maria, Diana and William…. we are so sorry to hear about your dad. We are currently in Florida and would love to be home to visit you at the this. Hopefully we will meet you guys when we get home in May.

Elery and Debbie Hudson!!!

Judd, Wayne and entire Haynes family, Sorry to hear about Art’s passing. Met Art while I was with RNC, and he was thankful for the time I gave to him. Of course he knew more about the Haynes-Earles connection than I did. Thinking of you all through this time.

Thinking of you Debbie at this sad time. So many fond memories.

To Jud and the Haynes family, I am shocked to read that Art has passed. Met Art while he owned and operated his furniture business. We hit it off right away and his unreal sense of humor was one of the best.
Ran into Art and his partner this past summer at the Princess Auto Car Show and even then he was at his best as he rattled off the funniest (unfiltered)stories. Art told it, EXACTLY, like it was.
Gonna miss the stories. RIP Art.

Sorry to hear of your Brother’s passing. Condolences to you and your family at this difficult time.

Arthur and family, sorry to hear about your dad. I remember good times in your backyard pool and going for cruises in your mom’s convertible. Your dad was always friendly to us kids. My sincere sympathy to you and your family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Miss you very much Bro. Love all the memories, the motorcycle ride, the fishing trips, the best 9 working years of my life, the fun and laughter we had together. My deepest symphony to Debbie and all Art’s children,
We will miss you, love Bob

So sorry for your loss..RIP Art..I will never forget you

Deborah and both families,
Art was special to us . He spread a lot of happiness with his music, jokes, and stories. He dearly loved you Deborah and knew he needed your energy, motivation and loving care. You created a treasure of memories together and now one of you is left to carry these on and cherish. Art will always be remembered and part of many conversations. We love you both.
Janet and Glen
