Obituary for John David Mowry Hayes

John David Mowrey Hayes, 77, died on August 10, 2019, at Pacifica House in Carlsbad following a long
battle with cancer.
He leaves behind his wife of 53 years, Janne (Calloway) Hayes; his son, Jim Hayes; and his daughter, Juli
(Hayes) Zajc and husband Jim Zajc; and grandson Andrew Zajc.
John was a native Californian and has spent the last 35 years in Encinitas.
John graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelor’s in Finance. While attending SDSU he
became a member of Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity and the fellow members have become an extended
family still after all these years. He began his career in Real Estate Banking with Bank of America and
spent over 25 years there. He spent a couple years with City National Bank before becoming a
contractor working with the SBA, this allowed John to travel much of the country for many years.
Traveling with his wife was always an adventure that took them many places including Hawaii and
London and Paris.
John was also able to welcome his grandson into the world while his son-in-law was serving with the US
Army in Korea. He took great pride in his family and was a loving father and grandfather.
There will not be a service for him as John wished for everyone to celebrate his life whatever way they
wish. He will be scattered at sea.
In lieu of flowers please make donations to Hospice of the North Coast, 2525 Pio Pico Dr, Suite 301,
Carlsbad, CA 92008 or
