Obituary for Robert "Rob" Hayden

August 30, 1971 - May 28, 2018
Avon Lake, Ohio | Age 46

Loving Husband, Father, Brother, Son


Robert Mark Hayden, 46, of Avon Lake passed away suddenly May 28, 2018. Beloved husband of 23 years to Hope Hayden (Brlan), devoted father of Kierstyn (20), Madison (19), and Jason (16) all of Avon Lake. Loving son of Robert R. Hayden of Lorain and loving brother to Alexis Hayden also of Lorain. He was preceded in death by his mother, Natalie Hayden (Burich).

Rob was a 1989 graduate of Lorain Admiral King High School and 1993 graduate of Kent State University where he earned a Bachelor's Degree in Finance and was a member of the Kent State University Men's Baseball team for three years.

Rob began his career in finance at KeyBank which was further developed at Global Concepts in Atlanta. Rob thrived as a Senior Expert Consultant at McKinsey & Company for the past 14 years. In addition to work, Rob enjoyed spending time with family and friends, traveling with his wife and children, golfing, poker with the guys, and devoting many hours doing what he loved most, coaching his daughters' softball team and his son's baseball team. Rob instilled his passion for the game into the lives of the young men and women he coached always stressing teamwork, #WeGrind, #21outs, #LetItRip, #DaddyHacks and always playing with a relentless pursuit of "bringing home the hardware."

Rob lived life to the fullest and has touched the lives of many. Not only was he a giving and caring individual, he was a tissue and valve donor knowing he would be helping the lives of many others.
