CAMBRIDGE, N.Y. -- David L. Hayden, 75, passed away peacefully in the presence of his family on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2005, at his home. David lived on Shields Road in Cambridge with his wife, Jane Shields Hayden.

Born Sept. 30, 1929, in Palmer, Mass., he was the son of Francis and Thelma Moore Hayden. David attended schools in Munson and Pittsfield, living later in North Adams and Williamstown. In 1962, he moved his family to Bennington, Vt. He has resided at Hedges Lake since his retirement in 1985.

David owned and operated J.H. Winslow Plumbing & Heating in Bennington for 23 years. He enjoyed golfing at Mount Anthony Country Club, hunting, and recently, his walks with his dog Zak. A very active member of the Bennington community, he was past president of the Bennington Lions Club and a member of the Bennington Chamber of Commerce for many years. He also served in the National Guard for 13 years. In earlier years, he was a member of the Second Congregational Church in Bennington and, as of late, a member of the United Presbyterian Church in Shushan.

He is predeceased by a brother, Ronald Hayden.
