Obituaries » Joe Hayes
August 28, 1961 - January 24, 2020
Our beloved Joe Hayes passed away from a long-term illness at the age of 58.
He joins his son Joshua, his dad Al, nephew Brandon, and many relatives in that special place reserved for us all.
Joe was born the youngest son to Al and Claire Hayes. He was a good athlete in his youth and grew into a strapping and handsome man. After high school, Joe became a shipfitter working the dock yards all over the Puget Sound.
For all of us, Joe was our handyman helper and his imprints are on yards and homes throughout Tacoma. He was an extremely hard worker. He had a wide group of friends who all know him as a kind and gentle giant.
One of his last wishes came true in November, when he finally attended a Notre Dame home game where he cheered his Irish to a last second victory.
Joe leaves behind son Joel, grandkids Joshua, Jaylynn, Joel Jr., Erin, and Brandon, mother Claire, brother Kevin, sister Cathy, and his long-time girlfriend Carla Lee.
A memorial service to celebrate his life, will be held on February 22nd at the VFW Post 969 at 3510 McKinley Ave. Tacoma, WA from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
