It is with great sadness that we announce the death of John H Haynes OBE, the creator of the famous Haynes Manual, founder of the Haynes Publishing Group PLC and the Haynes International Motor Museum. John passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on the evening of Friday 8th February, aged 80, after a short illness. John was a kind, generous, loving and devoted husband, brother, father and grandfather, who will be missed enormously. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Annette, his brother David and sister Mary, his sons J and Chris and their families.

RIP Mr Haynes.

Haynes manuals have saved me some big garage bills over the years. It was always nice to look something up and find out it was an easy fix.

I don't think my Type 45 Destroyer and Millennium Falcon manuals will prove as handy but they are still a good read :)

Sorry to hear this.

I owned several well-thumbed and oil stained volumes over the years, I could not have rebuilt the hydraulic clutch system of my Range Rover in Egypt without the manual. I'm glad I joined the list of authors recently.
