Frank Edward Hayward
-- 1937 ~ 2011 --

On March 26, 2011, Frank Edward Hayward passed away peacefully in his sleep. He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Bette Janet Melson, seven children (Esther, Ed, Kathy, Jeanna, Jerry, Roy and Charles), 37 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.

Frank was born on Jan 29, 1937 to Robert and Ida May Turner Hayward. He grew up on a dairy farm in southern Illinois along with his two brothers, Robert and James. Frank learned to work hard at an early age and kept that quality all his life.

As a boy Frank was known for his ability to understand and repair mechanical things and this later turned into a successful career as a mechanical engineer, eventually working his way up from design to management. He retired from International Harvester Case in 2005.

Frank and Janet met in high school and married after his first year in college. A few years after graduation, Frank and Janet were contacted by missionaries and were baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1962. This was a pivotal event in Frank’s life. Over the years, Frank served in many callings, including scout master, branch president, and bishop.

As a family man, Frank was a kind and loving husband and father. Not only was he able to fix and build anything around the house; he was also an example of honesty in all his business and private dealings, his service to everyone, and his patience in life’s trials.

Memorial services will be held Wednesday, March 27, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at the American Fork 10th LDS Ward Chapel located at 507 North 600 West, American Fork, Utah. Interment will be in the Maple Hills Cemetery, Fairfield, Illinois.
