Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother, Blake Hyatt, passed away on January 28, 2024 after a very courageous battle with colon cancer.\n\nBlake was born on August 9, 1937, in Parowan, Utah to Alma Hyatt and Thelda Bleak Hyatt. He was the fourth child of six in his family. He graduated from Parowan High School in 1955. After high school, Blake enjoyed various jobs throughout his career. He worked for Union Pacific Railroad as an agent telegrapher, Cream O’ Weber Dairy in Rawlins, Wyoming as a route salesman, the Iron Mines west of Cedar City driving large ore trucks and finished his career and retired from UPS delivering packages for 20 years. Blake was most proud of his time served as a military policeman in the 204th Military Police Company 5th Army.\n\nOn January 17, 1961 Blake married the love of his life Betty Jean Bills. Along with Blake’s four children (Earl, Jerri Ann, Jordan & Albert), they were blessed with twin boys to complete their family (Darren & Darrell). Blake and Betty enjoyed 63 blissful years together spending every waking moment with each other. They are the true definition of soul mates.\n\nOne of Blake’s greatest accomplishments was taking flying lessons at Color Canyon Aviation and obtaining his pilot’s license. He and Betty were able to purchase their own plane and fly anywhere they wanted. It was something they enjoyed very much. After Blake retired, they would fly their plane to Bryce Canyon and work in the store at Ruby’s Inn for a few hours a day. Blake also became an avid hiker later in life. He enjoyed countless hours constructing and maintaining the original Valentine’s Peak trail with his good friend Worth Orton and Cousin Gerald Hyatt.\n\nBlake was preceded in death by his parents, his sons Earl and Darrell Hyatt, his daughter Jerri Ann, his grandson Josh, his granddaughter Shelly, his sisters Yvonne Ashdown & Jeanenne Dalton, and his brothers Earl & David Hyatt. He is survived by his wife Betty; children Darren (Cori) Hyatt, Jordan (Cassi) Hyatt, Albert (Kim) Hyatt, siblings Darlene Rowley and Davie Duel, and 16 beautiful grandchildren.\n\nA Viewing will be held at Southern Utah Mortuary in Parowan, Utah on Friday, February 2, 2024 from 11:00-12:30 pm.
