It is with great sadness that Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum shares the passing of Admiral Ronald Jackson Hays — distinguished Naval leader, community member, family man, proud veteran, and friend. These tributes describe Admiral Hays, an extraordinary man who, among his many achievements, was one of our forward-thinking Museum founders. He will be greatly missed. The greatest single sentence tribute shared when describing Admiral Hays is: “He was ever the perfect gentleman who always led from the front.”
Please share your memories, tributes, and words of gratitude for the life and legacy of Admiral Hays.
