Michael Dean Hayden



Michael Dean Hayden, 73, of Oconomowoc, set forth upon his final journey with the Lord on Thursday, February 6, 2014. He was born in Longview, Wash., to Eleanor and Dean Hayden.  We have been blessed through his life as he was our rock, strength, protector, mentor, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, friend and neighbor.


Mike is survived by his wife, Lee, of 51 years; sister Kathy (Jerry) Estoup; children, Teri (Rick) Kalis, Todd (Rhonda) Hayden and Suzi (Gregg) Thelen; nieces and nephews; and 10 wonderful grandchildren. He is now reunited with his sister Joyce and their mother and father.


Mike enjoyed spending time with family and friends, golfing and fishing. He took joy in traveling the world with the love of his life, Lee. He was an active member of Whitestone Community Church of Oconomowoc and the Oconomowoc Kiwanis Club.
