Ralph Arthur Hayes

Ralph Arthur Hayes passed away in Susanville on June 27th, 2018 at the home of his daughter & son in law. He was 92.

Ralph was born on January 20, 1926 in Torrance, CA. to James & Elizabeth Hayes. Ralph was a track star at Leuzinger HS in Torrance. He was also a Veteran of WWII serving in the U.S. Navy. He was a radio technician and tail gunner in dive and torpedo bombers.

At the age of 17 he married the love of his life, Thelma Eeles. They had 53 precious years together. After their children were grown Ralph & Thelma spent many years traveling to many places and even lived in Canada for a couple of years. They finally settled in Trinity Center, CA where they spent many years together. After Thelma passed away in 1996, Ralph moved to Susanville to be closer to family. He loved his little apartment at Lassen Manor and met many friends there over 20 years. He kept active and bowled for several years in Susanville and loved to gamble once in a
while. It kept him well and happy in life.

Ralph is survived by his four children. Dorothy Lokey (Dale) of WA; Christine Brown (Tom) of Susanville; Jim Hayes (Becky) of Sonora and Mike Hayes (Rose) of WA. Along with one brother in law and several nieces and nephews. We will miss him dearly and will continue our love for him until we all meet again. No services will be held per Ralph’s request. Donations may be made to Honey Lake Hospice in Ralphs memory.


Why Pre-plan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that pre-planning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home
