Obituary of Roy Gordon Hayes
Roy Gordon HAYES
Roy Gordon Hayes, born June 14, 1936, on the family farm in Kennedy, Saskatchewan, passed away unexpectedly in Cranbrook, BC November 9, 2021.
He was predeceased by his wife and love of his life of 43 years, Eleanor (Cameron). He leaves behind his son Bruce (Dorothy), daughter Barb, grandchildren Cory (Leisha), Mandy (Mike), great grandchildren Jade, Daniel, David, and Deagan, as well as many nieces, nephews, family, and friends.
Roy was a simple man with an amazing work ethic. He was happy with an “extra crispy” wiener or a piece of chocolate cake.
He was a mentor to many and shared his knowledge whenever he could. His can-do or fix anything attitude rubbed off on many.
It wasn’t all work for Roy. He loved hockey and played as a goalie on 5 different teams up until he was in his 30’s.
He had many jobs over the years. A farmer, an entrepreneur, school bus driver, maintenance man at the Village of Kennedy, truck driver, and most recently the “potty master” at Cameron Enterprises. He was known for patching himself up if it was required to get the job done.
Roy will always be remembered for his sense of humour, you never knew what would come out of his mouth. He was a kindhearted man, who would help anyone, and never asked for anything in return. Roy will be missed by all who knew him.
