Obituary for Lyle N. Hayes

Lyle Napolean Hayes, age 95, of Oshkosh, passed peacefully and went to join his beloved wife Georgianna on Tuesday, July 24, 2018, surrounded by his family. They were partners for more than 70 years. He was born on February 24, 1923 to Raymond and Katherine Hayes.

In the fall of that year he met Georgianne Hroch. Their first official date was December 7, 1941 the same day that WWII started. They were married on June 16, 1942 and Lyle was drafted into the Army Air Corps in late March 1943. He had training to be a radio operator in a B24 and flew his 26 missions with the 454 Bombardment Group. He returned home and after several other jobs completed 32 years as an insurance adjuster. His final assignment was to Oshkosh where he retired. Together they had seven children. Lyle was a member of the Elks Club, and enjoyed woodworking, coin collecting, small game hunting, and spending time with, and adoring his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He and Georgianna especially enjoyed attending the children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events and other activities.
