Joe Aldon Hayes passed away in a motorcycle accident in Kendall Co, Ill. where he was working. Joe was Harold and Alice Hayes’s first born child. He entered this world January 23, 1955, in Brawley, CA. Joe had an honorable belief that hard work, equal play time and loving his family was the way to have a full rich life. Joe did just that; worked hard, played hard and loved with all his heart. Joe just completed his beautiful home that he built with his own hands. He and his partner Jude Davis had just settled into the home. Joe knew this country like the back of his hand. Every free moment he had, you would find him enjoying the outdoors. He enjoyed snowmobiling, riding his motorcycles, camping, fishing, hunting, 4-wheeling and much more with his many friends. At the end of a day sitting around a campfire and laughing about the day’s playfulness with friends, Joe would be the one preparing a delicious meal for all. Cooking was one of Joe’s loves. Joe is survived by his mother, Alice Hayes, devoted partner Jude Davis, Sister Marina of Dillon, Brother Charles Hayes, Vista CA, sons Luke, Missoula; Will (Brittney) Potomac and Mitch (Chelsea), Lolo, Mt. Joe loved and enjoyed seven (7) grandchildren; Dominic, Samantha, Elisa, Isaac, William Jr., Camilla, and Joseph. He leaves a nephew Nicholas, niece Elisa and many other family and friends who loved him. Joe was preceded in death by his father Harold, nephew Dana and adored dog, Maggie.
