    According to initial police reports, his wife found him collapsed near a treadmill exercise machine in their home after she returned from running errands. The Shelby County Sheriffs Department responded to his wife's phone call and took Mr. Hayes to Baptist East Hospital in Memphis, where he was pronounced dead at 2:08 AM EST. Hayes was 65.

    Not sure who he was, but if your posting this he must have been important. I'm sorry at any point to know that someone has crossed over.

    Most of the youger generation will know him as the chef from southpark.

    He was a famous singer/song writer (mostly soul I think) He did the theme for the movie "SHAFT" among others.

    Most of todays kids have heard it on commercials and such and don't even know it.
