James Peter Hayes Jr. affectionately nicknamed “Junior” by his family and “Sushi” by his friends. June 18, 1979 – May 21, 2016
Born in Frankfurt, Germany to Harue and James Hayes Sr. Survived by both his parents, his brother James Taylor, sister in law Kadedra Taylor, niece Kaylie Taylor, soulmate Cristina Wilson, as well as the abounding adoptive families who’ve affectionately claimed James as their surrogate son. James loved people. He was the nucleus of every social gathering. Friends, strangers, eccentrics- no matter. James would welcome you in with his facetious humor and magical ability to make the most uncomfortable at home and welcome. Today we celebrate the incandescent soul of a man whose life was an example to all those who looked up to him as a sage for wisdom. As it was his sole purpose in life to ease the pain and discomforts of those in his orbit, to grieve his loss would be a disservice to every single gift he gave and to every joke he told. A memorial service will be held Thursday, May 26, 2016, at 4:00PM at the Chapel of Mowell Funeral Home, Fayetteville. The family will receive friends from 2:00-4:00PM prior to the service at the funeral home.
