Obituary for Samuel "Sam" Craig Hayes

Sam Hayes of Harrah, OK, passed away on April 20, 2018. He was born to Tom and Billie Hayes on January 14, 1975 in Midwest City, OK. He was an aircraft mechanic working civil service at Tinker Air Force Base.

Sam grew up in Midwest City, OK and developed a love of the outdoors at an early age. There were many weekend family fishing trips to lake Texoma during his childhood years and continuing into adulthood with his good friends, Julie and Nick Diaz. He also loved hunting, especially deer hunting in Atoka, OK with his close friend J.R. He spent many weekends there during deer season and had several trophy antler mounts to his credit. He kept the freezer stocked with venison and was very generous in sharing his take with friends and family, as well as with those less fortunate. Sam also enjoyed bird hunting and made several pheasant hunting trips to Nebraska with his dad, brother, T. J. and his uncle.

Sam was a gifted athlete and excelled in football during his grade school, Junior High and High School years. He graduated from Carl Albert High School in 1994.

Sam was an avid sports fan and was especially fond of participating in Fantasy Football. Gatherings at his home during the draft and other League milestones were very special to him. These times were so important to him, since his son, Brennin and his brother, Price were involved as well. He was a true and proud OU Sooner Football fan and attended or watched faithfully.

Sam has an amazing talent for landscaping and his yard reflected his love of trees, flowers, and shrubs. He was always willing to share his artistic abilities helping family and friends with their many projects. Sam loved his family and was a loyal friend who was willing to help anytime.

Sam was preceded in death by his father, Tom Hayes. He is survived by his beloved wife, Jenni; his son and "Best Buddy", Brennin; mother, Billie Hayes; brothers, T.J and Stacy, their children, Gracyn, Macie, and Molly Hayes; Price and Felicia, their child, Keedyn Hayes; sister, Tracy Marcum, and her children Meredith Ritter, Brady Marcum and Jacie Marcum and Sherman Bryce, and their children Abel and Nolan Bryce; father and mother-in-law, Larry and Liz Skelly; sister-in-law, Angie and husband Jeremy Allread; brother-in-law, Michael and wife Shelbie Skelly and their child, Halston Skelly; special friends, Marty and Daniela Darrow, Corey Smith and Jill Lawson, and Jeremy and Nina Wakelee.

A celebration of Sam’s life will be 10AM, Friday, April 27, 2018 at Barnes Friederich Funeral Home Chapel.
