Gary Hayes, 68, of Paris, passed away after fighting a courageous battle with cancer on the morning of Aug. 5, 2021. He would not want anyone to be sad when thinking of his death but rather to remember him with a smile.

A Mass of Christian Burial is 2 p.m. EST Thursday, Aug. 12, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 610 S. 6th Street, Clinton, Ind. 47842. Burial follows in St. Mary’s Cemetery, Paris. Stewart and Carroll Funeral Home is assisting with the arrangements.

Mr. Hayes was born June 26, 1953, in Decatur, the son of the late Jerry and Joanne Hayes. He married Kaye Ogle Hayes, and she survives.

He is also survived by his siblings, Karen (Jim) Kerrick of Paris, Mary Ellen (Mike) Wilson of Paris and Mike (Kathy) Hayes of Casey; and many nieces and nephews.

Mr. Hayes had a generous heart, was a loving husband to Kaye and a fun-loving father to Isaac. He enjoyed working hard at whatever he undertook. He loved yard work, fishing, plowing snow (at Edgar County Highway and IDOT) and diamond painting, giving away most of his artwork to friends and family.

He requested memorial donations be made to Edgar County Cancer Support Group at E.C.C.F., Inc. Do-It Fund or Sarah Bush Lincoln Regional Cancer Center.
