Percy Haynes III was born on June 9, 1975 to Brenda Walker-Hilton and Percy Haynes Jr.
Percy graduated from Westbrook High School in Beaumont, Texas. He worked hard after high school. When Percy wanted to switch careers, he had the courage to go back to school to become a school bus driver at the age of 41. He was so proud! Percy was notorious for letting everyone know that he had to go to WORK!
Percy was also an extremely talented artist. He loved to draw. Percy worked for Disney and created several cartoons series. He designed t-shirts for friends and family. Percy was featured in the newspaper several times for painting bright murals in Beaumont, Texas.
Percy attended his family’s church, West Tabernacle Baptist Church. He was baptized at an early age. As an adult, Percy served the Lord, Jesus Christ with all of his heart, mind, and soul. His first sermon each day was living a holy life at home. He got up in the wee hours to pray and read the Bible. Percy often fussed at his wife for making him late for church. When life did not go as planned, Percy would pray and ask the Lord what to do or how to handle a situation. Many times Percy faced people that tried to make him angry. Instead of retaliating fight that he could easily win, he kept his cool and prayed for his enemies. In addition, Percy loved to serve anyone. He took pride in barbequing for the Word of Deliverance Ministries of the World (WOD); especially meals cooked for Bishop Bobby Hilton and Pastor Valda Hilton. Percy was a big part of the WOD Men’s Fellowship. During the COVID 19 pandemic, Percy volunteered to help pass out food to needy families. He willingly volunteered to take food to families without transportation, to the sick and shut in, and to the homeless in downtown Cincinnati, OH. Anything that WOD needed, Percy always said “Yes”. Ultimately, Percy NEVER wanted any recognition. His reward was the joy of having the opportunity to serve.
On August 14, 2010, Percy became one with his soulmate, Sherese Slaughter-Haynes. With the help of the Lord, WOD Men’s Fellowship, and MUCH TIME IN HIS TRUCK, Percy convinced Sherese that love doesn’t hurt and her heart was safe with him. He valued his wife’s strength and helped to make her stronger! Navigating this new life had many extremely unusual and tough tests and trials. Percy was even stronger spiritually than he was physically. Following the directions of the Lord, Percy rescued and protected his family! Sherese accomplished her goal of insisting that Percy understand that he is a treasure. This journey ended to death did they part with both Percy and Sherese committed to treating each other like royalty!
Percy loved his children Nyla Williams-Haynes, Skylar Williams-Haynes, Isaiah Bancroft, Zyonua Black, Bryona Black, and granddaughter, Bre’Asia Black. Never did Percy ever used the word “step.” Spending time with his children in any fashion put the biggest smile on his face. Percy was a softy when it came to this group! He did everything he could to get what they wanted and needed. Percy lit up any time the kids asked him for anything. He loved playing video games with Skylar; he was so happy that Skylar shared his love for video games. Percy also loved when Nyla called him to talk; he stuck his chest out with pride because he loved sharing wisdom with her. Percy loved to give an hour-long speech every time Isaiah asked him for advice. Bre’Asia had her own personal trampoline, Paw Paw’s belly, when she was a toddler. Percy was there to love Zyonua and Bryona by always asking his wife to help them financially when they needed it. Percy was happiest this Father’s Day to spend so much time with his family, especially his kids!
His family loved Percy whole-heartedly. It was priority for Percy to travel home to Beaumont, Texas at least a few times a year to enjoy his. He spent time cooking for his family; his grill was the size of Texas. Percy spent many days in the hot Texas sun barbequing all day just to be a blessing to his family. The family will miss his pranks and giggles that made it obvious that Percy did itJ. In Ohio, his family loves him too. Everyone in the family has only good things to say about him. In fact, it was mentioned to Sherese in the dating process that if her brothers had to choose between Percy and her, they would definitely choose to keep Percy J! No one had any issues with Percy. Everyone has a Percy or PJ story that makes him or her smile. Percy’s whole family will miss him deeply.
