Hayward, Eugene Sanford
After a long battle with Alzheimer's, on November 20, 2015, Gene left us to be with his Lord at the age of 86. Born March 7, 1929 in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, Gene served in the US Army during the Korean War. On February 13, 1954, Gene married his loving wife Margaret Mary Foral and they went on to share 61 wonderful years together. During this time, in the early 1980s, he and Marge retired to Mesa, Arizona. Gene was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He was a man of faith who loved to sing the praises of Jesus, play with his grandchildren, and boast proudly about his wife's home cooked meals. During their 61 years together, he and Marge had five (5) sons; Donald, Glen, Jerry, Gregg and Michael. Gene is preceded in death by his son Gregg and will be greatly missed by his wife Marge, four (4) sons, twelve (12) grandchildren, and six (6) great grandchildren.
