Fred died Feb. 22, 2017, at home in Seattle. Born in Minneapolis, Minn., he was the son of Anna and Edmund Hayes 1918 and lived all over the Pacific Northwest when he was with Weyerhaeuser Timber Co., the family concern.

Fred came to Princeton from Andover. He majored in economics, joined Elm Club, rowed on the 150-pound crew, and ran track. After two years in Holder, he roomed at 101 Patton for his junior and senior years with his cousin Don McGraw ’49. After two years in the Army, Fred eventually joined Weyerhaeuser, and held many responsibilities with them over the years. In 1969 Fred left the company and ran several businesses, ending up as owner of a large tree farm.

Fred married Catherine, known to all as Mike, in 1954. Fred and Mike took an active interest in sailing programs for people with disabilities. The family encourages memorial contributions to the Center for Wooden Boats in Seattle.

Fred was predeceased by his son, Fred Jr. (known as Fritz). He is survived by Mike and daughters Catherine M. Hayes (known as Terry), Julia H. Ernest, and Ruth H. Arista. Our sympathy goes to Mike and their daughters.
