Jim Haynsworth died peacefully of heart failure yesterday at 1:00 a.m. Born in Atlanta, July 27, 1927, he was the son of the late James Arthur Haynsworth and Susan Kirk Haynsworth of Hagood, where he was reared from childhood. He enjoyed a wide circle of friends, most of whom shared his enthusiasm for family history and genealogy, which with his recent declining health occupied much of his time. Foremost among a host of assets and talents was Jim’s incisive intellect. After graduating from Pratt Institute of Art and Design in New York City, he focused on creativity with three advertising firms in New York, Atlanta and Columbia. He also had a number of personal interests, among them his unique and historic home near Rembert, and the Society of the Cincinnati, which he served for years as genealogist and vice president, and from 2000 to 2001 as president. Jim was a 1947 Gold Stars graduate of The Citadel. In 1959, he married Mary Elizabeth Hurst of Conyers, GA. He is survived by his sister, Mary Alden Carrison, his children, James Haynsworth IV (Gina) of Columbia, Elizabeth Haynsworth of Veneta, OR, Susan Haynsworth of Taos, NM, grandchildren, James Lafayette V, and Hudson Rochambeau Haynsworth, and fiance, Kay Gordon. Jim’s many achievements include designing the South Carolina Bicentennial Medal, the State House carpet, and numerous awards from the Art Directors Club of Atlanta and the Southeastern Art Directors’ Exhibitions. Jim was a Navy veteran of World War II. His associations include membership in the Church of the Ascension, the Society of the Cincinnati, the Columbia Saint Andrew’s Society, the Society of the High Hills of the Santee (founding member and president), and the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts. Kornegay Funeral Home, Camden Chapel, is assisting the family.
