Oct. 18, 1941- Aug. 14, 2015 Lloyd Clinton Hays, of Warrior, born on October 18, 1941 to Willard and Pauline Russell, died on August 14, 2015. Lloyd was the youngest, with three sisters - Faye Hays Peters (m. Lloyd Peters), Doris Hays Mayfield (m. Norman Mayfield), Carol Hays Martin (m. Mack Martin). He married Janice Blalock Hays on May 5, 1961. He was a father to four - John Davis Hays, Suzanne Hays Timothy (m. Troy Timothy), Olinda Kim Hays, Nicole Hays Beckham (m. Tray Beckham), and a "Papa" to five grandsons - Justin Davis Hays, Zackary Tyler Hays, Taylor Franklin Timothy, Ethan Hays Timothy, William Hays Beckham and one great grandson - Caysen Hays. Lloyd served in the United States Army. He completed basic training at Fort Hood (TX) and Fort Lee (VA) and was stationed at Wrtzburg, Germany for two years. Afterwards, he worked for several companies and retired from Jim Walter Resources. Lloyd, an avid mechanic, enjoyed traveling to NASCAR races and antique car shows. He restored a '55 Chevy and was constantly tinkering on various heavy equipment and machinery. He taught several generations how to build with wood and other useful skills such as welding. Mexico and Germany were among his favorite places to visit but he was happiest at home. He will be remembered most for his smile.

To the Hays Family: My heartfelt sympathies go out to the family and friends during this difficult time. I hope that the promise in 1 Thessalonians 4:14 can bring comfort. Knowing that there's a hope for the ones we have lost in death can be so reassuring.
