I met Jim in 1984 when at the request of the FL Div. Cmdr of the SCV, Jim took Commander and I took Adjutant of the John T. Lesley Camp SCV as it was inactive and about to lose their charter. We became friends quickly as we were both retired Army Chief Warrant Officers and Masons, as well as Florida Pioneers. We were also in the SAR together. He was a fine man that always was ready to help others. RIP Jim, our sympathy to the Hayward family.

My most sincere sympathy to all the family in your loss. I had the great privilege of knowing Mr. Hayward at the AMSA#53G in Tampa. His vast knowledge of our government system was influential to me landing the job at the AMSA shop. Thank-you, “Gentleman Jim”, God Bless.

I am saddened with the loss of my favorite uncle, we may not have spoken often, but during our recent conversation last month, I am glad I had the opportunity to tell him I loved him. He was a rock when my mother passed away in 1969 and I lived with him and Aunt Lily and how much he meant to me, always showing me love and compassion. I will forever remember this wonderful man, who has remained dear to my heart.

It's always so hard to say farewell to such a great man and friend, Mr. Jim Hayward.
Remembering the great memory and times when he took me and Anthony, his son, and my best friend, fishing out at Lake Okeechobee or to the Gun Shows or letting us drive the Army Jeeps in the woods back behind our homes. He's always treated me like family. You will surely be missed by so many.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your loved ones and May God Bless You and Your Family.

Jim was a good patriot and I'll always remember going over to his house for our business meetings and all of the fish fries. RIP Rev Calvin T. Martin - Chaplain
