Hayes, Donald Patrick

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Donald Patrick Hayes on March 14, with his family by his side, his loving wife Doreen, his son Rick, and Barb and Mark Howard.

He is also survived by his sister Evellyn Mammel, brother Harold (Ruth), sister-in-law Lyn Jeske (Frank), brother-in-law Ken Powless (Dorothy) and many nieces and nephews. Don was born in Byemoor, Alberta on March 22, 1926. He was a man of many talents, working in the logging industry and then as owner/operator of Don Hayes Power Saws Ltd. for 38 years. He and Doreen had many adventures travelling abroad and RVing all over Canada and the US, but his favorite place on Earth was their cabin at Murray Lake. The birds and squirrels were always well fed when Don was there. He was a great story-teller and loved to share stories of his working and travelling adventures. There will be no Funeral by request.
