William "Bill" Henry Haynes obituary - New York Times

Dad as a child (c. 1927) and another obit.

William H. Haynes, vice president and a director of Arnold Clark, Inc. of New Haven and Frankfurt, West Germany, died yesterday of a heart attack at his home, 47 Riverside Drive, Branford, Conn. His age was 50.
Mr. Haynes had started as a shipping clerk 25 years ago with the company which manufactures a toy called Silly Putty, a moldable and bounceable product.
Survivors include his wife, the former Judith Farnham, four daughters, Carol Spooner, Patricia, Dawn, and Sandra, two stepsons, David and James Snipes, and four sisters.

** the obit is inaccurate in some respects. Dad died at age 49, on June 2, 1976. He would have been 50 the next month on July 2, 1976. My mother, Juanita Haynes, (his first wife) is not mentioned in the obit.
