Peter F. Haynes, age 73, passed away in his home on Wednesday June 20, 2018. He was born December 14, 1944 in Honolulu, HI to Elroy and Agnes (Miehlstein) Haynes. After graduating with multiple degrees from Colorado State University in 1974, he took a position at the LSU Vet School as an equine surgeon and teacher. Working in both academics and administration, he served as Dean of the Vet School from 2007 - 2014. He retired after more than 40 years at the school. Having been an avid practitioner and researcher, his work is found in over 65 publications. Active in numerous professional organizations, he served as President of the AAEP in 1992. He was preceded in death by a brother Robert (Bobby) Haynes, and his wife of 41 years Marcy Totoraitis Haynes. He is survived by a sister Susan Shaw, a son Greg Haynes and his wife Renee, a daughter Margaret (Peggy) Morgan and her husband Marshall, and five grandchildren, Abigail, Amber and Aaron Haynes, and Connor and Dorian Morgan. Peter was a dedicated and passionate educator and clinician; his hard work and enthusiasm have been admired by all that have known him. He was devoted to his wife, children and grandchildren. There will be a celebration of life in August, details of which will be announced at a later date. A scholarship has been established at the Vet School, the Haynes Equine Award, to further veterinary education at the facility; donations in his honor can be made at
