Corey E. Hayes, 50, of St. Marys, passed away Wednesday, November 30, 2016 at his residence following a brief illness.
From the moment Corey was born he was an independent soul. In his early days he played Baseball: his stories of his love of the game were legendary. He loved sports and followed the Kings Hockey team religiously.
In his early 20s Corey went on to become a musician playing bass for two Glam Rock Bands that played in the infamous Sunset Strip clubs, opening for such notables as Guns N Roses and more.
In 1992 Corey met and married the love of his life Rhonda Crews, moving to Jacksonville Florida to start their life together, later moving to St Mary’s Georgia. Corey was known for his wit, dry sense of humor and his writing. Like his father, Corey wrote screenplays and stories that touched the heart and engaged curiosity for the complexities of the human condition. His writing continued until the time of his passing. Corey and Rhonda also owned and operated Mermaid Cleaning Service in St Mary’s Georgia.
Loved husband, brother, son in law and father to his “fur babies”, Corey Ellis Hayes, passed away in St Marys’ Georgia November 30th 2016. He is survived by his wife of 25 years, Rhonda Hayes, as well as his sisters Rochelle Skala, Meredyth Hayes, and brother Garrett Hayes.
