John Brandon Hayes, age 43, of Fort Worth, Texas (most recently Paris, Texas), passed away peacefully on Friday, April 15, 2022. John (known as Brandon to all his family and friends), was born on October 21, 1978 in Fort Worth, Texas.
Brandon graduated from high school at Christian Fellowship Academy in Paris, Texas where he excelled at athletics, including karate and football. Following high school, he served in the United States Marine Corp. Following his service to his country, he married Alicia Reves, and had his daughters Sadie and Teja Hayes, whom he has always adored. Even following his divorce from Alisha, Brandon remained close to his daughters. Most recently, Brandon worked at Huhtamaki in Paris, Texas for over 17 years.
Brandon had a number of interests, including bowling with his fiancée Nikki McPherson and playing video games with friends and his brother Cliff Hayes. His relationship with Cliff was very close, though the two could be caught play-wrestling anytime the two were together.
Brandon loved spending time with family, friends, and his grandchildren. He came to know Jesus Christ as his savior at an early age, and we know those in Christ will see him again one day in Heaven.
Brandon is survived by his daughters Sadie and Teja Hayes, grandchildren Brynlee Whitworth, Luca and Arya Garcia of Paris, Texas, parents Donna and Will Kirby of Fort Worth, Texas; his brother Cliff Hayes of Fort Worth, Texas; Kenneth Adams of Detroit, Texas, as well as many other close, loving family members, and friends.
Brandon was preceded in death by his grandparents, Jessie and Imogene Walker, and great-grandmother Dutch V. Simmons.
