In Loving Memory of James Allen Hayes

It is with deep sorrow and much Love that we mourn the passing of James Allen Hayes, affectionately known as Monkey, who left us too soon and unexpectedly on May 20, 2024, at the age of 20.

Born on November 26, 2003, James was a beam of light and joy to all who knew him. He grew up in North Branch, MN. He enjoyed the outdoors life; mudding, riding ATVs, fishing, enjoying nature and spending time with family and friends. James had a unique ability to make friends wherever he went, leaving a lasting impression with his infectious smile and generous heart.

James is survived by his loving mother, Christina Beach, his sister Nichole (Lucas) with niece Vivian and nephew Miles, brother Robby with nephew Aaron. He also leaves behind his Aunty Audra, Grandmothers Barbara and Charlotte, Father-figure Bob McDonnell. His aunts, uncles and cousins; Ken and Shelly, Barb and Don, Kris and Dave, Diana and Andy, Candice and Todd. Other family includes Aunt Debbie Hayes and cousins Jade Hunt and Pam Hayes. There are so many other family members and friends who will all cherish his memory.

James’s life, though brief, was filled with moments of great Love, Joy, and Laughter. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Rest in Peace Sweet James, my Monkey. Your spirit will forever soar above the trees and stars you loved so much.

There will be a celebration of James’s life. *If you know the family and want those details, please reach out with the resources you have. Details not to be made public.
