From the Fremont Daily Messenger Obituary, May 7, 1923 by Lucy E. Keeler:
"The news of Scott Hayes's sudden death fills all who knew him with grief. He was all that is fine; of splendid presence and winning face: a man of the world in the best sense of that phrase, with that something which successful men of large affairs and influence acquire; gifted with great charm of manner, warm-hearted, generous, courteous, tactful: a man with countless friends. As his brother Col. Hayes said of him yesterday, " the finest of the fine".
