Hayes was born in Omaha, Nebraska, on April 19th, 2000, as the only son of Renee and Anthony

Morgheim. The Morgheim family moved to Springfield, Missouri, when Hayes was an infant, and he

resided there until returning to Nebraska with his mother in the fall of 2020.


While growing up in Missouri, Hayes loved to play soccer, visit the farm of his aunt and uncle, Tom and

Beth Douglas, and watch Cardinals baseball with his dad. Hayes had a very close relationship with his

cousins Brenna, Oliver, and Tara Douglas. They might have only been cousins, but they loved him like a

brother.


Hayes was an avid reader, a skilled gamer, and a kind soul. He loved animals and had a deep devotion to

his family. Although he was generally very shy, he had a quirky sense of humor and would often use it to

make those he was closest to laugh.


Hayes spent the last moments of his life standing up for others and, as a result, paid the ultimate price.


He is survived by many family members, including his loving mother, Renee Hoskins Morgheim of Grand

Island, Nebraska; maternal grandparents Jack and Leanna Hoskins of Hot Springs Village, Arkansas;

paternal grandmother Virginia Morgheim; and paternal uncles Jeff Morgheim and Ryan Carter.


Hayes was preceded in death by his father, Anthony Morgheim, and great-grandmother, Wilma Cravens.
