Obituary of William Lynn Hyatt

William Lynn Hyatt

May 1,1946 to September 12, 2021

Bill hit his longest home run on earth and followed it to Heaven where God called him safe at Home.  Beloved husband and best friend of Jo-Ann (McKinlay) for 55 years.  Loving and devoted father to Cindy (late Robert) Harris and Brad (Darci) Hyatt.  Proud and loving Papa to Grace Hyatt, Shayna and Shannon Harris.  Survived by sister Donna (Harry) Moody and brothers-in-law Fred (late Marg) McKinlay, Jack (Jeannette) McKinlay, Dick (Linda) McKinlay, and Art Wright. Also survived by many nieces and nephews.  Predeceased by parents Harvey and Mary Hyatt, parents-in-law Bob and Ilene McKinlay, siblings Bertha (Gene) Getty, Clare (Madeline), Ralph (Mildred),Violet (Erwin) Fisher, Evelyn Wright, Jerry, Clark and niece Cathy (Fisher) McFadden.  Bill was an accomplished athlete. He excelled in high school track and hockey, but his passion was baseball. He often laughed saying, “The only reason I went to school was to play ball during recess!” He worked at H.J. Heinz Company for 37 years, retiring in 2001 to begin a new career as a full-time Papa. He loved his family and was especially proud of his three granddaughters. We will always carry his memory in our hearts.  Funeral arrangements entrusted to Reaume Funeral Home Tilbury. Cremation has taken place, per Bill’s wishes. A private graveside service for family will be held on Thursday September 16, 2021 at 11am at Erie Cemetery, Wheatley. In lieu of flowers a donation to the Wheatley Relief Fund, the community Bill loved, or a charity of your choice is appreciated. Online condolences may be shared at www.reaumefh.com
