Larry K. Hayles, 56, was called by the Lord to his resting place in Heaven on Thursday, December 27, 2018.

Born in Dallas, TX, he grew up in several small towns in East Texas. At the young age of 17, he began his U.S. Marine Corps career.  It was a journey that would lead him to his wife of 35 years Mrs. Rosie I. Guardiola Hayles.  Three boys, combat, time away, and many moves later he retired as Master Sergeant with over 22 years of service.  After hanging up his uniform, he continued his service as a CBP Officer.  After over 13 years of faithful service, Larry Medically retired from CBP.  Gaining lifelong friends throughout his service to our community and Country, Larry truly impacted anyone who had the opportunity to cross his path.  It is with heavy hearts we say goodbye to a great man, our beloved MSgt Larry K. Hayles USMC (Ret.).

Larry loved fishing, golfing, and being outdoors.  He enjoyed riding his Harley and watching the Cowboys game with his boys.  Larry cherished the long conversations with the love of his life.  It gave him joy watching his Grand Children grow and learn.  He was a stand-up guy and was never afraid to fight for what was right.  Always willing to learn, he was a wealth of knowledge for all subjects.  When he did not have the answer, he always sought to find it.  He always put his family first and treated others with dignity and respect.

Larry is preceded in death by his mother, Valey Hudson; father, Kenneth Hayles, sons, Lorenzo Lopez and Steven A. Hayles.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 35 years, Rosie Hayles; children, Larry (Sarah) Hayles, Jr. and Kenneth (Tuuli) Hayles; grandchildren, Jazmine, Jade and Jaxson; siblings, Sherry (David) Essery, Gary (Billie) Hayles, Sonya (Jerry) Nutt and Sheila Hayles, nieces, nephews, numerous relatives and friends.

The family will receive guests on Thursday, January 3, 2019, from 5: 00 pm to 9:00 pm at Fred Dickey Funeral & Cremation Services.  A Holy Rosary will be recited at 7:00 pm.  Funeral services will be held on Friday, January 4, 2019, at San Martin de Porres Church.  A funeral mass will start at 10:00 am.  Interment will follow to the Calvary Catholic Cemetery.  Full military honors will be provided by the United States Marine and the American Legion Post 59.  Pallbearers will be Chayanne Villareal, Sergio Manrique, Mark Torres, Gregorio Quevedo, Hector Garza, Charles Toler, Trent Hairgrove and Hermenegildo Molina.  Honorary pallbearers will be Gregorio Quevedo Jr. and Sergio Veyro Jr.

I am so so sorry Baby, Larry, Kenneth, Sarah, Tuuli, Jazmine, Jade, Jaxson, Sherry, Gary, Sonya and Sheila for this heart-wrenching loss. I was only 15 when Larry came into our family and ever since he loved, cared for and worked hard to provide and protect our family. He did the same for our country as a Marine and CBP officer. I am beyond blessed and forever thankful to have known him. Todd and the kids and I love you very much and are here for you. May you feel God's comforting arms around you, strength and give you peace.

Isaiah 57:2 ~ Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death. Hayles Family, May the grace of God cover you with spiritual wisdom and understanding during this difficult time. May the Lord cover you with his wings to bring healing, peace and strength. May He open His heavenly gates for the welcoming of our friend and colleague, Larry. God bless you all.

Although I have known Larry since 2003 I really did not know more about him. Not because he wasn't friendly or approachable but because he always asked about you. He always made you feel comfortable, relaxed and took time to ask "how are you doing?" or "is there something I can do for you?". He was friendly, giving and a genuine person. He was a fellow veteran, fellow officer, friend and brother. Larry, my brother, you will be missed.

Larry was one of the kindest, most understanding and greatest example of what a man and leader should be. He touched more lives than anyone could ever imagine. A true and loyal friend who will forever live on in the lives of the people he touched. God Bless his entire family Always.

To the Hayles family, please accept my heartfelt condolences over the passing of Larry. I had the pleasure of working with Larry as his co-worker, his Subordinate, and as his Chapter President throughout his Legacy U.S. INS and U.S. Customs & Border Protection Supervisory / Officer Career. I had never met an individual of such high level of Integrity, fairness, and hard working ethics. May you find comfort in our Lord Jesus Christ to help you through these difficult times of grief.
