His obituary is as follows:

Frank Edward Hayes Sr., 65, Stewartsville, died Sunday, Sept. 3, 2007, after a courageous battle with prostate cancer.

He was born Aug. 19, 1942, in Caruthersville, Mo., to Rev. Boston Frank Hayes and James Ella Hayes.

Frank started singing at the early age of three and grew up in a family filled with musical talent. His lifetime dream was to make it big in the music industry. In the early 60s, he left home and moved to California to pursue a career in music.

His accomplishments in California included background vocals for the Isley Bros, Leon Russell and Albert Collins, as well as singing with the groups Toto, the Younghearts, and Sly and the Family Stone. He also was a regular on the Gong Show, which aired back in the 70s.

Frank ended his secular music pursuit in the early 80s, and upon his rededication to Christ, reverted back to his gospel roots. He was worship leader at Lighthouse Cathedral, Evangelistic Church of God and Christ, and Alta Loma Assembly of God, all in California. He was worship leader at the Liberty Assembly of God, Liberty, Mo., and assisted with worship at Grace Fellowship, Cameron, Mo., where he currently attended church.

His music and anointing truly blessed a multitude of people throughout his life, and will continue to be an inspiration to many people in the music industry.

Frank moved back to Missouri in the late 80s and was employed at Sonny Hill Motors, Platte City, Mo.; Double J and Son Industries, St Joseph; and Snorkel, Elwood, Kan.

Frank fought a courageous battle with prostate cancer for nine years and was truly an inspiration to everyone he met. He leaves behind a myriad of friends, as well as, his family wh
