David A. Haines, age 68, passed away on August 16, 2020 in Savannah, Georgia.  He was born in Trenton, New Jersey on March 25, 1952 to Horace J. and Marjorie F. Haines.

David graduated from the New York State School for the Blind, Batavia, New York and attended Adirondack Community College, Queensbury, New York where he studied radio bradcasting and was an occasional  announcer on the college’s radio station.  In 1993, he proudly received his ministerial degree from Greater Grace World Outreach.
