April 27, 1957 — March 8, 2021

Douglas J. Hayes, former Nashua, NH Police Captain, of North Conway, NH, formerly of Hudson, NH has passed away peacefully at home after a ten-year courageous battle with cancer. Born April 27th, 1957 in Utica, New York, the son of Robert and Patricia Hayes of Sarasota, Florida. Doug graduated from Alvirne High School in Hudson and afterwards proudly served his country in the United States Army as a Military Police Officer. He continued his desire for policing, joining the Nashua, NH police force in 1980. He rose to the rank of Captain while serving within several divisions within the department. Doug enjoyed spending time with his family and friends camping in the White Mountains. He enjoyed the area so much that after retirement from the force, he and his wife, Dennise (Morris) decided to settle and make their home in North Conway. Doug met Dennise while both serving as police officers in Nashua. They had two children, Richard Hayes, currently of Hudson, and daughter Casey also of Hudson, both graduates of Alvirne High School. Doug was very proud of his children, Rick having served his country in the US Army and Military Police, serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan and daughter, Casey, who studied Human Communication and Culture at USF and traveled to numerous foreign countries like Thailand, Namibia, DRCongo and Nepal to teach, work and explore.
