A native of South Bend, Indiana, Haynes served in the U.S. Marines from 1952–1964 and during the Korean War. He was a public affairs officer for the Naval Reserve with the rank of Commander and an alumnus of San Jose State University.
Following his military career, Haynes studied acting at the Film Industries Workshop and Actors West in Los Angeles. His film career included roles in Madigan (1968), Ice Station Zebra (1968), Assault on the Wayne (1971), Look What's Happened to Rosemary's Baby (1976), The Greatest (1977), and Good Guys Wear Black (1978). He also appeared in a number of television series, such as Batman, the second Star Trek pilot episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before", and the miniseries 79 Park Avenue. Haynes was dropped from Star Trek because series producer Gene Roddenberry preferred actress Nichelle Nichols over him.
Haynes also appeared on television shows such as Hotel, The Green Hornet, The Fugitive, The FBI, Marcus Welby, M.D., and Emergency!, as Captain Stone of Los Angeles County Fire Station 8 in the fourth episode of its fifth season (1975-1976) called "Equipment".
He was best known as high school history teacher Pete Dixon in the comedy-drama series Room 222, with Michael Constantine and Karen Valentine. Haynes and Valentine were both nominated for an Emmy and Golden Globe Award for their roles. Set at fictional Walt Whitman High School in a diverse area of Los Angeles, the show ran for five seasons on ABC, from 1969 to 1974, and was partially filmed at Los Angeles High School.
Haynes died of lung cancer at age 52 in Coronado, California. His tombstone lists the date of death as January 1, 1987. He was survived by his third wife, Carolyn Inglis, and their 4-year-old daughter, Jessica Haynes. His Room 222 on-screen romance, actress Denise Nicholas, was in attendance at Haynes' small private funeral in San Diego County. During his illness, Haynes was co-starring in the television soap opera General Hospital as Mayor Ken Morgan and was commuting from Coronado to Hollywood for filming, as he was working up until the time of his death. He was buried at Eternal Hills Memorial Park in Oceanside.
Haynes was an accomplished light airplane pilot, and developed a program to encourage and train minorities in aviation.
In 1970, after the first season of Room 222, Haynes divorced his wife Elizabeth in 1970. He married his second wife Saundra Burge in 1970, but divorced her in 1973, during the show's fourth season. In March 1983, after remaining single for ten years, Haynes married a third time, to Carolyn Inglis; together they had a daughter, Jessica Haynes.
