In Loving Memory of Anthony Hayden
Anthony “Tony” Paul Hayden, 36, ran into the arms of Jesus on Wednesday, March 1 at the end of a battle with cancer. He passed away surrounded by family and close friends and while we mourn the loss of an incredible husband, father, son, brother, and friend, we rejoice in his complete healing as he sees his Savior face-to-face.
Tony grew up in Ft. Wayne and attended Snider High School, followed by Purdue University. He married Meredith in 2011 and they have three beautiful girls; Caroline (2.5 years old) and twins Audrey and Emily (5 months old). Tony will be remembered for his authentic love for Jesus, mischievous smirk, penchant for adventure, and deep care for his family and friends. The relationships he cultivated will continue to reap long-lasting benefits of his care and intentionality.
Tony is survived by his wife, Meredith (Frey), and three girls; Caroline, Audrey, and Emily, as well as his parents, Paul and Peggy Hayden, sisters; Nicky Hefton (husband John), Michele Vince (husband Matt), Suzie Pattison (husband Kyle), and nine nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his brothers Geoffrey and Jeremy Hayden and daughter, Elizabeth.
Family and friends are invited to honor Tony’s legacy at Crown Hill Funeral Home (700 West 38th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46208) on Friday, March 3 from 4-8 p.m. and the funeral service at Common Ground Christian Church (4550 N Illinois St, Indianapolis, IN 46208) on Saturday, March 4 at 11 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, Common Ground Christian Church (4550 N. Illinois Street, Indianapolis, IN 46208) is happy to receive donations to be used for college funds and family expenses moving forward. Checks should be made payable to Meredith Hayden.
