Tribute to Bob Haynes on his 90th Birthday
March 2, 2011

Bob Haynes and Don Whitney met in 1947, the year Don Started work at American Optical. That summer, Jan and Ann met at an AO picnic hosted by Byron Zeigler. The photo below was taken at such an event and is the first photo on this page, which is a tribute to the long standing friendship between the Whitney and Haynes family. In going thru the Whitney archive of photos, it is clear that the longest and closest of friendships between two families has been our link with the Hayneses!

Here is a look by decade at some memorable times together. Thru the years, from the late 1950's until 1998 (when Don Whitney passed away), our families talked via Ham radio. This happened almost daily for decades when Bob and Ann lived in Maryland and later Florida, but even occur ed when the lived on Litchfield Ave and Cole Ave in Southbridge.
