Yale 62

Charles Robert Hayes

March 21, 1939 – July 9, 2021

Robert or Bob Hayes attended the University of Missouri for two years beginning in 1957 before joining our class.  He was assigned to Davenport and roomed with John O’Keefe. His home was in Keytesville, MO.

A Zoology major, Robert knew he was headed for a career as a doctor.  After graduation from Harvard Medical School, he served at the Army’s 5th General Hospital in Bad Cannstatt Germany before settling for a career in New York City, a place he loved for its cultural offerings.

While he once thought of being a professional piano player, no record has been found nor memory recalled of his exploits with the instrument while at Yale.
