In 1972, Hayward married the love of his life, Jean Campbell-McBee. They were blessed with three children: Sheldon, Dwight and Maxine (deceased). Hayward worked in Manhattan for what is now known as Verizon, for over 30 years before retiring in 1998. He then worked as a security officer at Community Medical Center in Toms River, and then retired for a second time in 2018. Hayward loved attending the semi-annual Hurt Waller Family reunion. He was the founder of the NJ chapter, who successfully hosted the most recent reunion in 2019.
Hayward is survived by his wife Jean, of 48 years, his oldest son Sheldon and wife Sarah, his son Dwight and wife Karen, and his four beautiful granddaughter, Maya, Siena, Cora and Chloe. He also leaves behind many brothers, sisters and extended family who loved him very much. Hayward will be greatly missed by his family and all who knew him.
