Ralph Lee Hayman, 77, proud Vietnam War Veteran serving in the United States Army Airborne Division passed away unexpectedly on Friday, July 15, 2022.
Ralph was born on July 23, 1944, in St. Louis, MO, as the third child of Homer and Frieda Hayman [Wear]. His first and favorite toys were cars. His interest in hot rods grew as he reached his teen years as he always loved to tell the stories of him racing down local streets in Lemay. After his time in the military his love for cars would span with a dedicated career at the Chrysler Plant in Fenton, MO.
He will be deeply missed by all who were lucky enough to know him. He touched the lives of so many people across multiple generations. He leaves a huge hole in the hearts of his family. During his time with us, he made a point to always help anyone with whatever he could.
Ralph was preceded in death by his wife, Carolyn Hayman [Firebaugh] (2008) and brothers, Homer (2006) & Joseph (2007). He is survived by his sister Frieda Harrison [Hayman].
