It is with heavy hearts we announce the death of Charles Eugene Hayes, who passed away peacefully at the age of 82 on Jan. 23, 2019. In the days prior to his death, he was surrounded by his loving wife, children, brother, and grandchildren. His family now has the overwhelming task of trying to fill the void that has been left behind and try to carry on without his wisdom, his smile, his laugh and his unconditional love. He will be missed every hour of every day.
