Rodrick Hayes

Rodrick Allen Hayes
April 14, 1954 – February 1, 2015

An inspiration to all who knew him; an unconditional worker for his family and friends Rodrick Hayes, 60, of Conroe, formerly of Bryan, passed away on Sunday, February 1 as a patient of Vitas Inpatient Care Unit in Conroe. Visitation hours will be from 6 to 8pm on Thursday, February 5, at St. Michael’s Episcopal Academy Chapel, 2402 South College Ave, Bryan. Graveside service is scheduled for 10:30am on Friday, February 6 at the College Station City Cemetery on Texas Ave. Funeral services are in the care of Callaway-Jones Funeral Home and Crematory.

Rodrick was born to Audie and Elsie Marie (Norman) Hayes in Bryan, Texas on April 14, 1954. He graduated high school and pursued his career in Water Purification. Although, no formal education followed high school he had a discipline to learn on his own and carry himself to the next level in his career. He knew no stranger as everyone he came in contact with Rodrick showed the utmost respect for and genuine care toward. He was a fan of fishing, enjoyed a great outdoor bar-be-que, and would drive miles for a delicious steak to eat. First and foremost any activity or adventure he undertook his family was always included without reservation. He was truly a family man.

Preceding him in death are his parents, Audie and Elsie Hayes; his brothers Danny Hayes and Ray Hayes.

Surviving him are his sons Robert Allen Hayes, Jeffery Shive and wife Kara; his daughter Desarie and husband Danny Waggoner; his grandchildren Avianna, Roxanne, Cadence, Cotulla, Rhiana, Contessa and Daniel; his sisters Shelly Greer and Nancy Feaster; his sister-in-law Lena Hayes; and mother of his children Janie Lynn Mirisciotti; other relatives and close friends.

  1. Shelley let me know Rod was in the hospital with pneumonia in Conroe on Friday. I had no idea how long he had been there or how sick he was.. We planned To visit him Sunday morning, but he died before we got there. Had no idea he was that bad off or surely Shelley would have insisted we go sooner.. i just wanted to let him know I came to see him; and say a prayer with him. He would have thought that was corny, but that is what I intended to do. My thoughts & prayers are with his family and friends at this sad, sad time.. God bless you all and Rod’s soul as well…

  2. After reading the obituary, I wanted to take a moment to extend my condolences to you. Those we love leave us gifts in the form of memories that we will always cherish. It is my wish that the many fond memories you shared will always bring smiles to your faces until such time that you will be able to create many more when God’s will for the earth and all our loved one who have passed away becomes a reality. John 5:28,29. Revelation 21:3,4.

  3. I had hoped to find a way to be present tonight. I wanted to say goodbye to Rod.
    I know him through Joy and Wayne Mallett. We spent many afternoons and evenings
    having a cold one, talking, laughing, visiting about everything under the sun. Rod was a
    gentle man, kind, polite, respectful of all women, not a potty-mouth, and just wanted to
    be around his friends. You will be missed so much, Rod, and I am grateful to have known
    you. Rest In Peace, Roderick.
