AUGUSTA, MAINE
John T. “Jack” Haines, Sr., age 72, died Tuesday, May 14, 2019 at the Maine Veterans Home in Augusta following a long illness. He was born in Chester, PA on September 28, 1946 a son of the late Robert E. Haines, Sr. and Grace E. (Parsons) Haines.
Mr. Haines grew up in Upper Providence, PA was a graduate of Penncrest High School in 1965.
Jack enlisted in the US Marine Corps in 1966 and served in Viet Nam. He was seriously injured in March of 1968 but did not let this slow him down.
Jack’s passion was automobiles and he worked in the industry until his retirement. Along with his wife, Nancy, he established “Hubcap Jack” in Linwood, PA in 1981. He first participated in local cars shows with his 2002 Thunderbird and, more recently, with his 1995 Mustang convertible, filling two trophy cases in his garage.
He was a member of the Masonic Lodge in Mantua, NJ and was a Life Member of the Disabled American Veterans.
Jack leaves behind his wife of 47 years, Nancy; two sons: John, Jr. of Augusta and Jeffrey and his wife Kris of St. Louis, MO; grandchildren: Jenna and Matthew of White Marsh, MD and Audrey of St. Louis, MO; three brothers: Robert of Aston, PA, William and his wife Karen of Jacksonville Beach, FL and Richard of North Fort Myers, FL; as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.
At his request, there will be no public visiting hours or funeral service. Graveside military honors will be held on Tuesday, July 2nd at noon at the committal shelter at the Maine Veterans Memorial Cemetery, Civic Center Dr., Augusta.

I first met “Hubcap Jack” at a Maine car show. I don’t recall the year but he was running a 2002 Thunderbird in the 2000 and up class and I had a 2002 Monte Carlo in the same class. In essence we were competitors for the great CPT (cheap plastic trophy). Our competition became a friendship that extended into the ‘90s class, him with his 1995 Mustang GT and me with a 1990 Thunderbird SC. I could quickly tell when Nancy could not make a car show to get Jack on and off his power chair as Jack would call me the night before a show and ask if I was going. He would never ask if I would help him with the transfer from show car to his scooter, it was just understood that I would be there for him if I could. Over the years others at the show would gladly lend a hand too. After the transfer Jack would detail his car, making it show ready. Sometimes he would take first place in our class and sometimes it was me. And sometimes we both went home empty handed. It wasn’t so much about the trophies but rather recognition for the car and a job well done. Jack never talked about his Vietnam service as many who saw the worst of it do not. I was there too and could appreciate that. God speed Jack, all your older car show buddies will see you soon and you best have the car wax ready. Bill
