Hayes Scott, III was born on July 18, 1961, at Andrew Air Force Base, Camp Springs, MD.  He was born to the late: Hayes Scott, Jr and Rachel (White) Scott.  He departed this earthly place and took flight to his heavenly home on Friday, August 19, 2022.

Hayes affectionally, known as “June” was the second oldest child of five siblings.    In 1964, the family had moved to Kansas City, Kansas.  By age, 13, the family moved back to Washington, DC where he attended Washington, Junior High School, and graduated from Spingarn High School in the class of 1979.  Hayes had an amazing talent in art.  He could draw virtually anything.  He was chosen to present his artwork in the Maxi Arts Gala and the National Collection of Fine Arts Smithsonian Institution, entitled:  The Way We Are, 1978, etching”.  After high school, he enlisted with the United States Army, in 1982. He was stationed in Fort Knox, Kentucky.  After time served, in the military, Hayes decided to further his education.  In 1992, he attended the Institute of Security and Technology receiving his diploma in Corporate Security and Investigations Program.  In 1997, he received his certificate in Computer Electronics Technology. In 2008, he received a diploma as a Master Certified Automotive Technology.  In 2010, he made the President’s List for outstanding achievement from Everest College Phoenix Online.

Hayes worked multiple jobs during his life.  It wasn’t until he worked with a company by the name Roto-Rooter Plumbing when his health took a turn.  By 1996, Hayes had to have a kidney transplant.   His dearly loved sister Bridget Ann Scott was the donor of the kidney.  It was an honorable act of love, but unfortunate the organ failed, and he was back on dialysis.  A survivor, Hayes lived 24 years on dialysis.  Truly, he fought a good fight against a long battle with many health afflictions. “God saw the road was getting rough, the hill hard to climb.  So, He gently, closed those loving eyes and whispered, ‘Peace by thine’.”

Hayes was preceded in death by his sister Cynthia Denise (Scott) Jones, and one brother Cuthbert Thaddeus Phillips, Jr.  He leaves to cherish two sisters:  Bridget Scott and Mary Houser, one brother-in-law Wille Houser, two nephews:  Willie Harvey and Timothy Houser, three nieces: Chandra McNeill, Cristal Houser, and Chantel Houser, two great-nephews:  Osyrus McNeill and Jaxon Muse and one great-niece:  Nevaeh McNeill along with a host of other beloved family and friends.
