Brett Christopher Hayes, age 31, of Carmel, Indiana passed away on Saturday, July 3, 2021. Brett was born July 30, 1989 in Indianapolis, Indiana. He was a member of Christ the King Catholic Church.

Brett was an avid outdoorsman, preferring to be camping, hiking, hunting, or fishing. He enjoyed all things sharks, fish, turtles, and most every other type of living creature. Sharks and hunting were some of his favorite topics of conversation. Being out amongst nature was where he found the most at peace. He had a passion for teaching safe marksmanship and responsible gun ownership. He often would spend hours hunting and hiking at nearby state recreational areas while his beloved Grandma Betty would wait patiently, driving him there and back all to have cherished 1:1 time with her grandson.

Brett attended Christ the King Grade School and played a year of football at Bishop Chatard High School before graduating from Options High School in Carmel. After a few years working at McAllisters in Carmel, Brett moved to Prescott, Arizona to study gunsmithing at Yavapai College. After receiving his degree, he returned to his home state and worked as a gunsmith in Fort Wayne. On one of his trips home from Prescott, Brett drove the entire way on a small motorcycle that took him on a three day cross-country adventure.

Brett was a respectful young man who was known and loved for his politeness. He had a smile that could light up the room and he was best known for his genuinely heartfelt hugs, especially the “tighter, tighter, tighter” variety. Quiet and gentle, his family and close friends meant the most to him.

Brett is survived by his parents, Tom Hayes and Amy (Williams) Hayes; sister, Cara Bilse (Alex); brother Ryan Hayes; grandparents, Robert and Joanne Williams; niece, Hensley Bilse; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Brett was preceded in death by his grandparents, Grandma Betty (Williams), Robert Hayes and Barbara Hayes.

Visitation for Brett will be held Friday, July 9, 2021 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM at Christ the King Catholic Church, 5884 Crittenden Ave, Indianapolis, Indiana, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00 AM. He will be laid to rest at Our Lady of Peace Cemetery in Indianapolis, Indiana.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Brett's memory may be made to Christ the King Catholic Church, 5884 Crittenden Ave, Indianapolis, Indiana 46220.

You can also honor Brett by casting a line in a nearby lake or river and just sitting and enjoying the outdoors.

Brettster, I was never able to locate the photo of when I first met you but your very happy mama called me at work and told me, she and Tom had a son! I left work and we all gave you your first bath in the kitchen. A bright, happy, energetic and loving little boy and although as time goes by, from all I’ve read you have never lost any of those traits and gained so many more wonderful aspects about your personality. I am thankful we have so many photos of all the Miller and Hayes kids after Easter mass. They have always been special to us and will remain so. We love and miss you Brett. May God wrap His loving arms around you and never let go. Peace be with you my friend. 💙

Brett was one of the only people I could truly relate to and always have fun conversation with in high school. The most exotic thing I have ever eaten was when he made us squirrel stew and I’ll never forget how delicious it was. Probably what opened my mind to trying new things which has helped me my whole career. What a good one we lost. Prayers of comfort and peace to him and his family.

From deep and thoughtful conversations about life to cracking jokes in the build room until we were red faced and laughing so hard we couldn't breathe we shared some of the best times that I wouldn't trade for the world. Brett was an outstanding man, a talented craftsman, and the brother I didn't know I wanted. I'll miss you buddy.

I have a lot of great memories with Brett, funny moments and hilarious stories. He had a contagious enthusiasm for life, and a silliness that was only matched by his sincerity as a person. My memories of him always make me pause and smile and laugh, and I will continue to share his joy with others the rest of my life.

Many long talks of fishing, hunting and hiking stand out to me about this young man. He realized and appreciated my bucket list item of doing a fly-in trip to fish for Walleye, Northern Pike and Musky in Canada. While that dream remains unrealized, the times spent with him do not. A quick smile and an engaging personality were his calling cards. Gods speed, my young friend.
