A Great Man
Like so many others, we were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Tyler County Assessor Jack Hayes. Mr. Hayes had been a fixture of Tyler County for decades, first as a resident and then as the assessor.
After his passing, we spoke to personnel at the Tyler County Courthouse. The same words were used to describe him, over and over again: professional, honest, kind-hearted a leader and a friend.
We also interacted with Mr. Hayes. He never failed to give a cheerful and kind greeting in passing, or lightheartedly joke.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Jack Hayes, his co-workers, and all who were blessed to know him.
May his legacy of being a kind-hearted and good person live on and inspire us all.
