Hayman Co. co-founder Stephen Hayman dies at 77
Stephen Hayman, one of the two brothers who founded Southfield-based real estate ownership and management firm Hayman Co. in the 1960s, died Wednesday morning following a lengthy battle with Parkinson’s disease, his son Andrew said. He was 77.
Stephen Hayman was a 23-year-old law school student at the University of Detroit in 1963 when he purchased his first apartment building in the city.
“In that time he started his business out of his parents’ basement,” said Andrew Hayman, the company’s president. “He worked hard and grinded it out.”
