         Mr. Haynie had returned from Fort Worth Saturday afternoon where he had been with the Highway Committee of the Chamber of Commerce. He went out to Lake Penick later to confer with his partner, Mr. R.L. Penick, who was at his country home. There Mr. Haynie stated that he had never felt better in his life and upon returning home Mr. Haynie retired about 11:00 oclock. At 2:00 oclock, he called his sons, Lloyd and Jeff, and asked that a physician be called, stating that he felt bad. He lay down on a couch where he expired in a few moments.
         Mrs. Haynie, who was with her daughter, Miss Edna, at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. S.S. Sansom in Georgetown, Texas, was notified at once by telephone, and she arrived in Stamford at 5:00 Sunday afternoon, accompanied by her brothers, the Rev. Earnest Sansom, of Houston, and Ray Sansom of Georgetown, Texas, and her sister, Miss Willie Sansom.
         The Sansom family was enjoying a family reunion, and Mr. Haynie had planned to join Mrs. Haynie at Georgetown during this week and together they planned to attend the Texas Hardware Jobbers Association meeting in Galveston.
         No death has shocked Stamford more than that of R.L. Haynie, for nearly 23 years a member of the firm of Penick-Hughes Company.
         Surviving are his wife, who was Miss Lora May Sansom, of Georgetown, to whom he was married in 1909, and their daughter, Miss Edna, and three sons, Lloyd, Jeff and Elbert, whose mother was Miss Matilda Elizabeth Blair, of Bell County, and who passed away in Stamford 18 years ago. Two sisters, Mrs. George E. White of Fort Worth, and Mrs. Maggie Hanyie Stoneham, of Stoneham, Texas, also survive. The elderst son, Leonard, died about 10 years ago.

He came to Stamford when the town was three years old and entered the firm of Penick-Hughes company. During his 23 years in the city, Mr. Haynie has worked unceasingly for its progress. He is chariman of the committee for the committee for the local Chamber of Commerce. He was a 32nd degree Mason and a Shriner, a charter member of the Rotary Club and a member of the First Presbyterian church.
