Cobby Haynes was a kind and gentle man who fiercely loved his family. He had a beautiful heart, and could always make you smile. My dad loved him like a brother. Please accept my heartfelt condolences for your loss. God bless your family.

When my family moved back to Knoxville after the death of my father in 1967, we bought The house next door to Cobbie, Joella and their 3 sons. Both Cobbie and Joella treated us as family. We excitedly welcomed the additions of “Little Cobbie” and Amanda to this wonderful family and I was always willing to babysit. I have many fond memories of Cobbie. Our mother Virginia McMurrain remained friends with the family for many years, including Cobbie’s parents. Both Cobbie and Joella were special, loving people who opened their hearts to a widow with three young girls. I will forever remember their kindness.

Cobby was a great influence on me from my years of "hanging around" and working at Sequoyah Hills ESSO. I learned about cars and mechanical work, but more importantly I learned about life in general. I saw what it is like to be a young guy starting a business and raising a young family. I also got to know many types of people and personalities like Junior who I also felt close to. It is so ironic that both Junior and Cobby passed away at almost the same age and same week. John Buckner, who I have always admired, is one Cobby's many successful trainees that leaned his trade and how to run a business from Cobby.

Most of all I will always remember Cobby as the most friendly and most "people person" I have ever met. His customers loved him, and he helped his customers in many ways besides maintaining their cars. For example, he helped my elderly parents move their furniture around. Cobby took care of everybody. I remember in Sequoyah Hills there were a few people that would charge their work to Cobby, but they could not pay. He would continue to sell them gasoline even though he knew that they could not pay.

The attached photo is about 2 years old, and is the last time that John, Cobby, Junior, and I were all together. I treasure this picture.

I will never forget this amazing man.

I remember when I first met Cobby. He was this happy go lucky person who had a heart of gold. So nice and kind. He was always good to me.
Sending prayers and hugs to his family.
