Joshua C. Haynes
- Linn County Rural Fire District #1
- Age: 35
- Year of Death: 2022
Joshua Clyde Haynes, son of Eddie and Sandy Haynes, was born March 5, 1987, in Nevada, Missouri, and departed from this earth on June 22, 2022. Joshua could only be described as a loving, dedicated, passionate father, brother, and son. He graduated from high school in Louisburg, Kansas in 2004.
Joshua leaves behind four beautiful children, Joslyn, Makayla, Blake, and Easton; his parents, Eddie and Sandy Haynes; sisters, Virginia Haynes and Renea (Josh) Marshall; four nieces and nephews; and a host of extended family and friends.
From a young age, Joshua always wanted to be a firefighter, following in the footsteps of both his parents. It was no surprise that as soon as he turned 18, he fulfilled his lifelong dream. Joshua proudly served for 17 years at Station 920, Linn County Rural Fire Department District #1.
Joshua’s second love was his race car! If he wasn’t busy with his fireman duties, you could always find him at the local racetracks. He was able to share his love of racing with his family, driving in the demolition derbies with his sister, Virginia. He and his sister could always count on their family to be in the stands, cheering with signs and wearing shirts that supported them both.
Outside of being a fireman and racing, Joshua took pleasure in listening to country music, spending time with friends and family whenever he was afforded the opportunity, and fishing. One memory Joshua took pride in was catching a 51.5-pound flathead with his father, Eddie.
Although his family misses him greatly, they know Joshua departed to Heaven doing what he loved to do. The family extends its gratitude to everyone who reached out to help during the time of mourning. They take comfort in knowing that Joshua Clyde Haynes is with our Lord and Savior and will see him again in due time.
