Bernie Hayes Memorial Fund

Thank you for coming to Bernie's Memorial page.

Tuesday August 8th, 2017 was a very hard day, not only for Bernie's family, but for everyone who ever met him. We lost him suddenly and unexpectedly. Whether you knew Bernie well or as an acquaintance, you know what an impact he had on everyone. He was a wonderful husband, father, friend, and mentor, and was a profound influence on anyone who had the privilege to know and love him. 

Our goal is to set up a remembrance fund in Bernie's honor for Madison Grace Hayes, Bernie's six-year-old daughter, to help with her future needs. When special dates or occasions arise (Bernie's birthday, holidays, etc.) and you think of Bernie, we hope you honor his memory by contributing to help with Madison's future. Bookmark the page to help you remember if you'd like.

We set the goal for $1 because we really have no goal to meet. Anything that is given is a blessing and will mean the world to her, her family, and Bernie.

Thank you so much for anything that is donated.

-Bernie’s Family (Dawn, Maddie, Justin, Meghan, Chris, Samantha, and Olivia)
