Rev. Hyatt was born January 28, 1922, in Bowden, Georgia, to Lemuel Lee Hyatt and Ora Florine Lovvorn Hyatt. He was a WWII Veteran serving in the U.S. Navy in the South Pacific aboard the U.S.S. Flint from May 7, 1943 to December 13, 1945. After his discharge he worked with ADT for 18 years in Atlanta, Nashville and Louisville. At the age of 40, with a wife and 4 teenage children, he enrolled in the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He began his first church ministry in a little mountain ridge church outside Owenton, Kentucky. After serving in several churches in Kentucky and Tennessee, he and his wife moved to Chiefland, Florida to serve in a church there. His last ministry was at St. James Baptist Church on Pine Island outside Ft. Myers where he retired at age 65. In 1992 they moved back to Georgia to be closer to family.

Honoring our parents prearranged wishes, there will only be a graveside service at a later date in Carrollton, Georgia, at Shady Grove Baptist Church at the family cemetery plot.
