Retired Arkansas Supreme Court Justice Steele Hays died yesterday in Conway. He was 86. He sat on the state Court of Appeals and served as a circuit court judge as well.

Funeral service is 10:30 a.m. Saturday at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Conway. An obituary is on the jump. As I was talking this morning about him with Ernie Dumas, Ernie commented of his service: “He was motivated by justice as well as the law.”
