Haynes, Melvin*  
Melvin Haynes Melvin "Mel" Haynes of Arbuckle, CA, formerly of San Francisco, CA and Longview, TX, age 84, died on June 3, 2016, as a result of a fatal automobile accident in Dunnigan, CA. Mel's passing is a heavy loss to his family, friends and loved ones. Born on January 21, 1932 in Longview, Texas, to the union of Horton, Sr. and Fannie Matthew he was the sixth of seven children. Mel attended elementary and junior high school in Longview, Texas. Mel moved to California where he attended El Cerrito High for a short period before receiving his high school diploma from Chico High School in 1951, where he played on the football team, played saxophone in the school band and was a member of the ROTC. On July 22, 1951, Mel and Carmen Carrillo, of Chico California, married in Chico, CA, and to this union had nine children: Erris, Larry, Melvin Jr, Arron, Carmen, Gregory, Paul, Lance, and Douglas. Mel and Carmen were married for over 57 years. Mel moved his family to San Francisco in 1951 and was able to purchase a home at 1717 Baker Street and several other properties in San Francisco while working with TW Washington Realty buying and selling real estate. He studied law and was a law clerk for John Busey who later became the first black judge in San Francisco. He also worked for Zelinsky & Sons Painting as a Supervisor. In 1966, Mel formed his own licensed painting and construction companies, M. Haynes Co and Melcar Construction Inc., respectively, which were members of various associations, such as the San Francisco Painting and Decorating Association, Associated General Contractors of California and other organizations and worked with many unions, such as the Painter's Union, Cement and Brick mason's Union and Operating Engineer's Union (Local 3). Specializing in painting and sandblasting, he cared about his community and hired and trained many San Francisco residents. Mel and Carmen desired that their children obtain college educations, and they did. They include graduates of UC Berkeley (3), Pomona College (2), Hasting Law College (1), Holy Names (1), San Francisco State University (1); and one attended West Point Military Academy. Mel also attended San Francisco State where he majored in political science, played on the football team and, later after raising his family, earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1976. Mel enjoyed taking the family to the family ranch, to 49er games at Candlestick and was a big fan of the 49ers and San Francisco Giants. His firms, M. Haynes Painting Co. and Melcar (Melcar) Construction, Inc., were the subcontractors on many construction projects in and outside the Bay Area: SF General Hospital, San Francisco UC Clinic on Parnassus Ave., Bank of America Tower/SF, SF Bethel AME and Allen Chapel Churches, Inglewood Civic Center, Santa Ana Hospital, Sacramento Convention Center, and Castro Street (San Francisco) and Broadway Street (Oakland) Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Stations, to just name a few. Being a family man, he enjoyed having all of his sons and Brother Horton ("Dick") working with him in his San Francisco office: 644 Laguna Street. In recognition of his ability to work with people, he was elected President of the San Francisco Painting and Decorating Association. Later, he became Coordinator for the Operating Engineer's Apprenticeship Program at Rancho Murritta, Sacramento, CA, where he helped train future engineers. Mel was a member of Kappa Alpha PSI Fraternity, Oakland Chapter, member of Bethel AME Church SF and later a member of Jones Methodist United Church SF where he served on the Trustee board under Rev. Hamilton Boswell, Pastor. After years of operating a successful construction company, Mel turned his interest to farming and developing agricultural properties. In 1977, Mel formed Melco Construction and Mining Co. and purchased 400 acres of undeveloped land in Palermo, CA, near Oroville, where he grew and harvested a variety of crops, such as organic almonds (which were later packaged and sold throughout the Bay Area), watermelons and other organic crops. He also maintained a sizable herd of livestock and designed a golf course surrounded by 200 residential homes. In 1980, he purchased 300 acres of agricultural land in Arbuckle, CA, and continued to develop the land. He enjoyed hosting family reunions and friends at the ranch ("Rancho Del Sol") where he would share his vision of developing the ranch. He also owned and operated a motel in Williams, CA. All members of the family and friends enjoyed the Ranch and cherished the memories of working hard to make it a success. The family would like to send a special thank you to Colusa County resident Charlene Littlejohn for her continued support of Mel's vision to continue to develop agricultural land and her companionship during difficult times. Mel is predeceased by his parents, Horton and Fannie, brothers Evans, Arthur D, Horton ("Dick"), sisters Fannie Mae Boyce, and Betty Jo. Mel leaves to mourn Carmen O.
