Woodward, Okla. — Jack Haines, 89 year old longtime Ellis County rancher and businessman, current Woodward resident died Sunday, January 12, 2014 in Oklahoma City.  Funeral services will be held at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 in the First United Methodist Church of Woodward with Reverend Pete Hyde and Reverend Bill Tindell officiating.  Interment will follow in the Fargo Cemetery with the Billings Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.

 

Jack Lawerence Haines was born on July 28, 1924 in Ellis County, Oklahoma near Gage to William Walter (W.W.) and Hazel Leona (Nichols) Haines.  Jack was raised in the Greenwood Community   and attended the Greenwood School through the eighth grade, he then transferred to Fargo Schools.  During high school Jack was drafted into the United States Army serving his country during World War II in the South Pacific Theater and was Honorably Discharged.

 

While at home on leave Jack was united in marriage to Lois Lee Sloan on April 17, 1944 in Woodward.  Jack and Lois made their home on a farm north of Fargo where they farmed, ranched and ran a dairy operation.  They were blessed with three sons, Tim, Brad, and Doug.  In 1981 Jack and Brad started Haines Pipeline Construction.  Jack helped run the company until the early 1990's when he retired.  Throughout his retirement Jack continued his ranching operation.  Though the ranch will always be considered their “home”, they did enjoy spending time with family and friends in their current house which they built together in Woodward in 2002.

 

Jack was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Fargo and was devoted to his family. He taught them the value of working hard and supporting one another. He loved his life and family and was proud of the legacy he left them to carry on.
