We were saddened to learn of the passing of one of our

Will Hayes joined the Twin City Camera Club in September of 2012 and was very active in the club, participating in a lot of the club activities. Will helped out on projects, attended the Digital Workshops and served as a Score Keeper for several years. Will competed in Digital Slides and was becoming more accomplished in his photography and post processing. He was doing well in the monthly competitions, including being a yearly points winner, Photo of the Month winner and a Black & White Digital Slide of the Year, First Runner Up (Tie) winner, until his illness made it to difficult for him to continue.
As I understand it, his partner in life, Jim Long, also a TCCC member since 2010, was the one that got Will interested in the club. It's always gratifying to me, as one involved in the teaching of the workshops, to see the members that attend, put the skills they learn into practice. Will was one of the members that Dennis Hafer, Dan Brant and I enjoyed keeping tabs on and watching as his competition entries improved. I'm going to share this one that I especially liked, Will titled it "Am I Blue." It is his Black & White Digital Slide of the Year, First Runner Up (Tie) from the 2016 Annual Competition. I think that's quite an accomplishment for someone that was fairly new to the club and our competitions.

Will went on the club's field trips when he could and attended
some of the outings with the Black & White group on their field trips and
luncheons. Speaking of fieldtrips, several of you were able to do the
Chicago Chinatown trip in 2014. Here are some Ken McKeown photos from that
trip. The first one I made an enlarged insert of Will because I really
liked his enthusiasm.
The second one is a composite with photos of Will taken from some of the other images.

My thanks to Ken McKeown for providing me with his wonderful photos.
I considered Will a man with a kind and gentle soul. He was always very pleasant, had a great smile and was creative with his photography and culinary skills. It was a real treat when he would be providing us with some of those great baked goodies as our after meetings refreshments.
Will was one of the special people that we are fortunate to
have had come into our lives.
Will was one of the good guys and he will be missed.
We extend our heartfelt sympathy to his Partner of over 35 years (and husband since 2015), Jim Long, and to all of their family and friends.
Just an added Note: Jim Long said that there may be some kind of memorial or commemoration event after the warmer weather returns, to be announced at a later date.

William Michael Hayes
William M. “Will” Hayes, 70, of Baroda passed away at home on Tuesday, January 9, 2018, after a long battle with cancer.
Will was born March 12, 1947, in De Soto, Missouri, to William and Sarah Ann (Dawes) Hayes. He was a 1965 graduate of Crystal City High School. In the late 1960s, Will served in the U.S. Air Force as an aircraft mechanic. He loved airplanes and for many years enjoyed making rubber-band-powered free-flight models. Will loved cars and road trips and enjoyed attending car shows. He was also interested in photography and was a member of the Twin City Camera Club. Will was a fantastic cook and loved entertaining friends in his home.
After military service, Will attended The Academy of Beauty in Los Angeles, California. It was there that his teacher stated that Will could cut a head of hair with a piece of a broken bottle and make it amazing. He worked several years at Bullock’s Salon in Century City, California, and then in 1977 opened William and Donald, Inc., a salon in Venice Beach, California, with Max Donald Brown. The pair abandoned Venice Beach for southwest Michigan to be closer to Max’s sister, Cindy. In 1981, they opened a premier salon, Partners Hair Studio, in Stevensville. Will went on to work many years at Scissorhands and Frenz salons.
He is survived by his loving partner of over 35 years (and husband since 2015), Jim Long; sisters: Sharon Morris and Janet Peters of Festus, Missouri, and Janice Roberge of De Soto, Missouri.
Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society. Those wishing to sign Will’s guest book may do so at www.allredfuneralhome.com
