Gabriel Howard Hay

September 12, 1976 - August 27, 2021

Gabriel Howard Hay, age 44, a resident of Summertown, went fishing in heaven on August 27, 2021.

A memorial was held Wednesday, September 1, 2021, at Heritage Funeral Home, Columbia. Heritage Funeral Home assisted the family with arrangements.

Gabriel was born in Davidson County on September 12, 1976. He had a passionate love for electricity from a very young age when he stuck a pair of nail clippers in an outlet. He was currently employed as a Superintendent at Superior Electric. He was a proud member of the IBEW Union (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers).

He was a very awesome and honest man and above all, a loving husband and father. He leaves us memories of a very outgoing, outspoken man who loved fishing, camping, the river, family, and friends. Having a good time while aggravating, especially those he loved, was one of his fondest pleasures. He wanted you to think that he was "the a**hole" but he was covering for the big ol' teddy bear that he was, with a heart full of compassion. At the end of the day, he didn't care what you thought about how he dressed, or what he thought. After a long hard day of working, he enjoyed relaxing with a tall cold one. He was an avid firearm enthusiast. Following in the footsteps of his Pop, he would have nothing but a Ford.

Gabriel married the love of his life, Sherry Hay, twenty-three years ago. He enjoyed spoiling his beautiful daughter, Mackenzie Hay, and his fur babies.

He is survived by his wife, Sherry Hay; daughter, Mackenzie Hay (Cole Owens); mother, Laurie Foster (Tim) Greene; sister, Lora (Jimmy) Cates; brothers, Lazer (Mason) Turner, David and Eric Thurman; brothers-in-law, Steve (Amy) Mangrum, Mike (Katie) Tucker, Phillip (Charity) Tucker; uncle, Howard "Charly" (Heather) Foster Jr.; aunt, Elizabeth (Antone) Wix; father and mother in law, Wayne and Martha Tucker; and several nieces and nephews.

Gabriel was preceded in death by his father, Dannie "Pete" Hay; grandfather, Howard Foster; grandmother, Phyllis Foster; grandfather, Ted Hay; and grandmother, Annie Laura Hay.
