Ronald Wayne Hayes

January 8, 1957 – March 20, 2024

Ronald Wayne Hayes

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Ronald Hayes, a cherished member of the Cincinnati community. Born on January 8, 1957, in Cincinnati, OH, Ronald dedicated his life to helping others through his work at a local soup kitchen and his volunteer efforts within various churches. His kind and giving spirit touched the lives of many.

Having grown up in foster care, Ronald found solace in reconnecting with his family in the 1970’s, he reconnected with his brothers Jim and Floyd. Despite the challenges he faced early in life, Ronald’s resilience and compassion shone brightly, endearing him to all who were fortunate enough to know him.

Ronald Hayes, a proud American citizen, will be dearly missed by his friends, family, and the community he served so selflessly. A man of simple pleasures and profound generosity, his legacy will live on in the memories of those whose lives he touched.

Ronald will be deeply missed by his brother Floyd, honorary niece Becky (Dennis) Halcomb, nephews, Robert Hayes and John Hayes, one of his best friends, Kelly, friends Curtis and Margaret Metford, and a very large church family.

Ronald was preceded by his foster parents who raised him, and his brother, Jim Hayes.

A funeral service to honor Ronald’s life and legacy will be held at Arlington Memorial Gardens Funeral Home 2155 Compton Road, Springfield Township, OH 45231 (Follow BLUE line that is to left of entrance to get to Funeral Home). Visitation will take place on Tuesday April 2, 2024, from 12:3 PM – 1:30 PM. Funeral service to follow at 1:30 PM and burial will follow at 2:30 PM at Arlington Memorial Gardens Cemetery. Friends, family, and members of the community are invited to pay their respects and celebrate the life of this remarkable individual.

In his memory, let us continue to spread kindness and compassion in our daily lives, carrying on Ronald’s legacy of love and service to others. May he rest in peace, knowing that his legacy of generosity will endure for years to come.
