Age 91

HYATT, Robert H. “Bob” (Age 91) On February 14, 2014.

Robert H. Hyatt died peacefully in his sleep at the age of 91.

He is survived by his sons, Steve Hyatt (and wife Candy) of Casa Grande, AZ and Keith Hyatt of Bellingham, WA; his granddaughter Autumn Hyatt of Irvine, CA and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was married for over 50 years to the love of his life, Hilda, who passed in 2002.

Bob was a devoted husband and father who proudly served his country and community.
