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.
