Robert William Hayes, 80 of LaCrosse, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, March 22, 2020. He was born December 9, 1939 in LaCrosse to Phillip & Lida (Benham) Hayes. Robert served proudly with the U.S. Marines, maintained membership with American Legion Post #403 in Wanatah and LaCrosse United Methodist Church.  He made his career as a driver with Brown Bulk Transport for nearly 20 years.  Spending time with a fishing rod in his hand and tending his garden with carefully selected vegetables and flowers gave him a special pleasure.  On September 1, 1962 he married Jessie Ann Parlin.  She preceded him in death in 2005, and their son, Nicholas preceded them both in death in 1967.  Survivors include their children, Rejina Sue Rogers, Richard “Rick” Carlton Hayes (Angela Marie) & William “Marty” Hayes (Anna Hegedus), brother, Dwight Hayes (Carol Sue), sister, Edith Pratt; grandchildren, Cory, Chase, Kyle, Dylan & Ashley and 5 great-grandchildren, Chance, Dayton, Brianna, Aliya and Austin.  He was also preceded in death by a grandson, Bradley White and siblings, Grant, Eugene, Earl, Stanley, Herb, Lavern, Eunice, Marie, Marguerite, Inez.
A memorial service will be announced at a later date.  Memorial donations may be made to the Hayes Family Trust at 1st Source Bank.
