Hays, Thomas E.  
HAYS, Thomas Edward Thomas E. Hays, Founder and Chairman of United Agencies, Inc., passed peacefully in his sleep on February 16, 2015, at the age of 89. A native Californian, born in Los Angeles on March 26, 1925, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business from the University of Southern California. He entered the insurance business and founded United Agencies, Inc. in August of 1962. He lived to celebrate UAs' 50th year in 2012 and joked about living to celebrate United Agencies' 100th. United Agencies was his second family. Showing his love for the people and the business, he was in the office, at his desk, the very week before his passing! An avid golfer, he served as President of the Southern California Golf Association and Annandale Golf Club in Pasadena. Married to his high school sweetheart, Marjorie, for 67 years, he was a devoted family man, raising two children, Ross and Cheryl. It was a joy having such a wonderful, supportive father who was so much fun! We shared many laughs and great times, from family vacations to planned surprises. Tom's love of people and bringing people together, were two of his greatest enjoyments! His spirit knew no boundaries. If he had an idea, he knew he could do it, and you could not tell him otherwise. His interests were varied, from golf, fast cars, electronic gadgets to new business ideas, always reading, learning new things, and moving ahead. His race boat, 'All Risk', was another joy that he shared with his son, Ross. Snow and water skiing were also favorites, as well as travel with friends and family. Rooting for the USC Trojans was another great passion! His generosity and tremendous love of life showed in all that he did. If we ever said, "But, Dad, at your age"...he would always say, "What does age have to do with it?" His positive attitude and great sense of humor were always evident and greatly appreciated! He definitely lived life his way, and for that, we all benefited, and loved him because of it! Tom is survived by his loving wife, Marjorie; son, Ross; daughter, Cheryl Conkey and her husband, Gary; granddaughters: Kelli Adams and her husband, Kyle; Megan Raser and her husband, Brian; and great grandson, Cayden Raser. We are honoring Tom's wishes for a small service for immediate family. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any donations be made to the Cardiology/Heart Center at Huntington Memorial Hospital, Pasadena, CA, in memory of Thomas E. Hays. Cabot & Sons, Pasadena
