Roger Eugene Haynes passed away peacefully on July 5, 2021 at his home with his family by his side.
Roger was born July 17, 1956 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Burt Haynes and Bonnie Gardner, who were divorced. He was the oldest of 3 children: Ray (Jill) Haynes and Dianne Haynes, who he was close with. Roger has one daughter, Heather (Mark) Shoemaker, from a previous marriage to Dawn McCabe; two grandsons: Beau (Chelsea) Johnson, Cutter Johnson; and four stepchildren: Richard Cretsinger, Christine (Chris) Mitchell, Marion (Ryan) Tygensen, Ashley (Carlos) Cruz; and many nieces and nephews.
Roger grew up and spent most of his life in Grantsville, UT. In his early years, he was a master HVAC/Electrician Specialist. He spent 40 plus years at US Magnesium as a instrumentation tech working his way up to supervisor. He recently retired in 2018. He was also a VCR/TV repairman and ran his own business for many years. He had a love for fixing anything with electricity and was talented at many things and was pretty much good and anything he did.
He loved the outdoors and his wife Annette dearly who he was married to for 11 years. They spent time riding 4-wheelers, camping, fishing, concerts and drinking beer. He loved to show off his cars at car shows, hosted Halloween parties and also DJ'd music all over town. He and his wife were able to take many trips and planned to take the motorhome up the coast.
Roger's life was cut short by stage 4 lung cancer, a battle he fought as hard as he could. He always said, "it is what it is" all the way to the end.
Preceded in death by his dad, Burt Haynes; his sister, Dianne Haynes. He will be dearly missed.
Graveside services will be held at the Grantsville City Cemetery on Friday, July 16th at 7:00 pm for those who would like to say goodbye.
