Former Assistant South Carolina Bishop George Edward Haynsworth RIP

The Rt. Rev. George Edward Haynsworth, died peacefully this evening, Saturday, November 24, 2012, from complications of a heart attack he suffered Friday, November 23. Bishop Haynsworth served as former Assistant Bishop under the Rt. Rev. C. FitzSimons Allison, and also served as the Bishop of Nicaragua.

Bishop Haynsworth has always been a kind and supportive friend to me and my family and I am so thankful for his life and witness. I shall remember so many things, but most of all that after he suffered through my first sermon in the diocese of South Carolina at Saint John’s, John’s Island, in the summer of 1985, he was very gentle and gracious to me as a new seminarian–KSH.

    While I don’t know Bishop Haynsworth, he confirmed my hubby back in the 80s. May Bishop Haynsworth be granted rest eternal.
