Johnnie Franklin Hayes, long time Northeast Oklahoma native, left this world the afternoon of February 27th, 2023, at Saint Francis in Tulsa OK. Johnnie was born July 8th 1955 in Claremore, OK. He was the son of Sandra Hayes (Merritt) and Jacob “Frank” Hayes.
Johnnie served his country in the US Army and was retired. He loved living out in the country, spending time outside doing yard work or building something.
Johnnie loved to spend time with his family, children, and grandchildren. He spent a lot of time in his life training horses. He also enjoyed shooting pool, dancing, working on cars, and drag racing.
