About David Lewis Hayse

Find-A-Grave memorial #53683518.

Find-A-Grave does a pretty good job of summarizing all the standard facts, but there are a few additional things that need to be said about Red Dave.

He was a man who loved his family. Find-A-Grave says he was survived by four children. Well yes, that is correct. There was a fifth child named Kate, but she didn't survive him. He loved her enough to give her what would have ordinarily been his own grave, so she could lie beside her mother forever.

But there was one thing Red Dave couldn't do. His daughter's dates are both engraved on her mother's tombstone. But her mother's final date is not. He loved his daughter enough to give her his own grave,but it simply wasn't in him to say that his wife was gone too.

Rest in peace, Dave. The obituary services took care of what you couldn't take care of. We have an excellent final date for your wife Matilda, the mother of your daughter Kate, even though you couldn't provide it.

And I'm very proud to have you as my third great uncle.
