Fred was born in St. Rose. Du lac raised in Winnipeg by his loving Mother Florence and Sisters Patsy, Debbie and Joan.

He has 3 children Candy, Lacey and Dwight. Total of 19 Grandchildren Bet you didn't know that!

Fred Had 2 Passions In His Life, The love of Music and the love of AA.

He was the best in the business, the best sound man there was.

He started in 1980 traveling Canada with the Ranville Boys, better known today as The C- Weed Band, these were his Brothers. He was adopted into their brotherhood from a young age for he only had sisters, so he found his brothers (cousins) for life at Aunty and Uncle house and there began the travels of his journey in this life time as Fred "The Gun "Hayes.

Quote: Wally Ranville

His memory will be cherished by the younger generation as well, all the guys in the band and our sons and daughters especially the ones that got to travel with US, Will Forever Remember Him for his teachings of his Sound ManSkills, Patience and Tolerance Of those around him.

Fred was God loving man always no matter what his battles were in life. Fred was a man who was given a gift of sobriety, this gift is given and kept only through the giving back of what WE are given.

He was the most selfless man I knew, he helped any man or woman who needed it, he would share the love of His Program and God and give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. HUMBLE

Is the best word to describe who he was as a Man, Father, Brother, Son and Friend.

Stay Humble Stay Focused Stay Blessed

You loved me like no one else... we weren't to close but you were the kindest soul. When the going got tough you'd fight every inch to keep fighting. You over came your battles and made life such a blessing.
God will carry you now. Your with gramma and I love you with every inch of my big heart. You were so soft spoken and such a old soul.. you were always there for others. Making sure the band got everything they needed. The adventures you went on will live within our memories. I wish you had more time in this big world. Your kindness will live on. I can't ever forget that sweet voice, those lovely hugs you brought..your eyes always did light up everytime we got together.

You fought hard to build yourself and every one that came into your life up, you are one of the angels that was sent from above to the world down below to guide show us some love. But it was time to send this angel back up to heaven to enjoy his time for all the things he gave back to this world. Now your our guardian angel from above. We all are grateful to have the time we had with you.. you beautiful soul. We love you so much!!!!
I wasn't ready to lose both of you so fast.. but now you get to watch over us and have peace.

I know you were missing your mom and I know your now sitting up there with her. Getting that extra time with her. You finally get all the time in the world with her.
We will meet again grandpa. R.I.P GRANDPA!!! Forever In My Heart.
