It is with deeply saddened hearts that we announce the unexpected passing of David Hayes in Port Stanley on the evening of Friday, March 9, 2018, at the age of 38. Cherished son of Corene (Terrence Ashe) and the late Roger (2008). Dear brother of Jeffrey Hayes (Alana Baarschers) and Rachel Hayes (Brian Spicer). Father of Apryl and Andrew. Loved uncle of Matt and Kayden. Treasured grandson of Hendrik and Sia Vanderhulst and the late Beverly and Helen Hayes. David was a gentle, loving soul who was always willing to help anyone in need, and would give the shirt off his back. He was an avid collector and loved music. David saw the good in people and will be deeply missed by all those whose lives he touched. Cremation has taken place. Family and friends will be received at SMITH FUNERAL HOME, 1576 London Line, Sarnia, on Wednesday, March 14, 2018, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. A memorial service will be held at REDEEMER CHRISTIAN REFORMED CHURCH, 5834 Blackwell Sd.
