Gerald Hayes

Gerald Schuyler Hayes October 21, 1962 - July 16, 2015

Gerald "Jerry" Hayes passed away peacefully with his family by his side after a long illness. He was quite the entrepreneur and began many successful businesses, most notably: Curb I.D. and Hayes' Sunscreens and Window Coverings. He coached basketball for the City of Lincoln Parks and Recreation Youth Sports Program for 3 years. He felt that teaching the youth of Lincoln the art of sportsmanship and team building was his greatest achievement.

Pre-deceased by his mother, Jo Marie Anderson Hayes, and his son, Mitchell Jones, Jerry is survived by his wife, Anna Hayes; children, Gerald E. Hayes, Kate Moss, Schuyler Hayes, Kaylie Jones, Jimmy Bradshaw, Alex Bradshaw and Lexyi Conrad; grand-children, Taniya Hayes, Eliana Moss and Braedyn & Levi Jones, whom he adored, and many other family and friends.

A visitation will be held on Wed., July 22, 2015 from 4-8 pm at Smith Funeral Home, 116 D. Street, Davis, CA 95616 (530) 758-5500. A private memorial celebration of Jerry's life will be held at a later date. Those who wish to sign a guestbook online may do so at www.smith-funerals.com.

Jerry, You were many things in our lifetime but most of all you were my friend. You will be missed more than you probably were even aware of . Your entertaining humor and wit could make me laugh even when I didn't want to. You would always come to G.E defense when people would be cruel. You will be missed by the three of us Doug,, G.E and I but we know you are at peace now with our Lord. Thank you for being my friend. Aud, Doug and G.E

My Dear Husband; you will always be loved and forever missed. Thank you for our life together. We went through so much together, good and bad, but always had each other's backs. We all love you and will remember all the wonderful memories.
