Randy L. Hayes, 68, Logansport, was welcomed into the arms of Jesus Saturday morning, September 2, 2023, in the Howard Community Hosptial, in Kokomo. He loved life. He loved his family. And they were by his side as he fought a courageous 10-year battle with cancer to the very end.
Born August 24, 1955, in Logansport, he was the son of the late Harold and Hazel (Curl) Hayes.
On March 28th, he and his wife, Barbara (Hayden) Hayes celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. They were married in Logansport in 1973,
Randy was a 1972 graduate of Logansport High School. He was a member of the Southern Baptist Church in Flora.
For over 40 years, Randy worked in the car business before retiring. He wholesaled cars for many years after that and was always on the lookout for good deals. Randy loved helping people find the perfect car. That big heart of his was all about helping others – whether they were having a tough time making payments or finding the means to buy a car – he would go the extra mile to make it happen.
To Randy, family meant everything. Until he was 51, he played in basketball leagues with his sons. The best title he ever earned in life was that of “Papa” to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren…even if it meant watching the same episode of Mickey Mouse over and over. He was a good judge of character and made friends easily.
Surviving with his wife, Barb, is one son, Randy Haves, Jr. and his wife, Ashley, Logansport, daughter-in-law, Missy Hayes, Logansport; two sisters-in-law, Josephine Hayes and Pat Frederick; four grandchildren, Taylor Hayes and her companion, Trevor Boyer, Kelsie Heishman and her husband, Sage, Trajan Skinner and Kendall Hayes; and two great-grandchildren, Bradley Boyer and Bellamy Hayes-Boyer.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by one son, Michael Wellington Hayes, and one brother, Robert Hayes.
A visitation will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 7 at Fisher Funeral Chapel.
A funeral service celebrating Randy’s life will follow at 6 p.m. Thursday in the funeral chapel with Pastor Karl Burkhardt officiating.
Burial, at a later date, will be in Mount Hope Cemetery.
