Charles "Chuck" Robert Hayes II, age 55, passed away peacefully on Tuesday June 1, 2021 surrounded by his family. A devoted grandfather, father, uncle, husband, and friend, Chuck will be admirably remembered by his many girls and everyone who had the blessing to know his bright smile.

He was preceded in death by parents Charles and Patricia Hayes. There is no greater joy than resting assured Chuck is once again reunited with his parents who he so deeply loved and missed. Those who knew Chuck were most aware of the love he had for his family. He was far more than Papaw and Uncle to his grandchildren and nieces, guiding them throughout childhood and into adulthood.

Chuck leaves behind to cherish his memory loving and dedicated wife Tammy Hayes; children, Halley Hayes and Marley Hayes; Mother and Father-in-laws, Doug and Bonnie Kelley; sister, Lori Hayes; grandchildren, Brooklynn Hayes, Emmalynn Ibsen, Allysah Ibsen, Torrin Wilson, and Kaylonnie Gilbert; nieces; Taylor Pinkerton, Tori Pinkerton, Misty Kelley, Justice Brooks, Jaiden Gilbert, and Jalia Gilbert. Chuck also considered his close friends family and would do anything for them.

Those who knew Chuck, even in the slightest, knew one thing for certain: he LOVED his girls, especially his grandbabies. His three granddaughters: Brooke (16), Emmie (13), and Alley (12) wrote the following passages to shed light on just who their Papaw Chuck really was.

“My Papaw Chuck was not just my papaw. He was my daddy. Even though he didn’t make me, he definitely helped to make me into the person I am now, and I am forever grateful for that. Papaw never failed to make anyone happy. He had the biggest, prettiest smile that could even lights up a stranger’s day. He worked so, so hard for all of his girls and never let anyone down. He was always there for anyone who needed him and willing to help anyone out at any time. I have so many special memories with my papaw, from camping in the mountains to having fun at the beach. He was so special, and I am so thankful he was mine.” -Emmie

"Chuck Hayes, also known as Papaw Chuck to his three granddaughters was the most loving, caring, and fun Papaw on earth. He wouldn’t miss anything special in the world, from elementary school plays to middle school lip sync shows. Anytime I needed him, I could pick up the phone and wait to see him in his big black truck. My favorite memory was on Christmas when I opened my present and saw a big white smile on his face. I’m going to miss the long walks and talks on a Saturday morning with a leash in one hand and coffee in the other. With him I felt totally happy and loved. He never ever let me down, and I will always remember holding his beat up hands, seeing his big smile, and hearing him call me “hot-rod.” I will never forget what a loving, hardworking, dependable Papaw you were. Love, Albug aka your hot-rod.” -Alley

“Many will remember my papaw by his outgoing personality and cheerfulness, where a dull moment was never to be found. However, I will remember him as the man who raised his entire family of girls until the Lord called him home. I learned how to drive a truck, bait a crawdaddy, and install a window all from him. Day after day he would work endless hours to provide the best for us, only to return home with reassurance and support for the future. My Papaw Chuck was always one phone call away and made it so that we had everything we ever wanted. Papaw was not just my grandfather, but he was my Daddy. He was the one always covering my tail, and pushing me to meet my dreams in life, but most of all making sure I was living it right. Although I grew up as a tomboy right under his arm, he taught me how to be a lady, even though I knew more about cars than most of the boys did. I love my papaw so much and will forever hold onto the relationship that we shared. I will forever miss our morning Weigel trips and our midnight Sonic snacks. You will always be my daddy, and I will have comfort in knowing that you are watching over me.” -Brooke

Chuck will forever be in the hearts of his family and will forever be missed.

Goodbye, Old Pal. I will always treasure your friendship and the countless hours we spent together. We’ve walked the beaches and we climbed the mountains; we’ve crawled in crap and we sipped fine wine. We weathered many storms, and we lingered in the sun. So many fond memories you leave behind. You will be missed by me and many. Goodbye, Old Pal, you were truly a good friend.

Uncle Chuck was the most loving big hearted person I've ever seen. He would help anyone anytime no questions asked. He lived for helping people. He was always the one person I could call for anything even if I needed advice. He and Tammy helped guide me to be the woman I am today. I will be forever grateful he came into my life. I will never forget you uncle Chuck, we will keep your memory alive, and don't worry i got Tammy from here. The boys and I will forever love and miss you. ❤
