Charles Glen Haynes – Manchester

Charles Glen Haynes, 86, of Manchester, Iowa, passed away on Wednesday, September 16, 2020, in his home south of Manchester. Charles was born April 15, 1934, the son of Harry and Erma (Sheppard) Haynes. He graduated from Manchester High School in 1952 and then served honorably in the United States Army.
