Peacefully at Seven Oaks General Hospital on May 19, 2000, Rev. David Jasper Hyatt left this world to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
David was born in Emo, Ont. on Aug. 7, 1912, the youngest of seven brothers, Stanley, Gordon, Freeman, Noble, James, John, and Marshall, and three sisters, Eva, Lila, and Ida.
As a young man, he worked in the logging camps but at age 21 gave his life to the Lord, who he followed until his passing.
During the war, he served in the medical corps. On his return, he became an ordained minister with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada in 1949, with whom he served as a pastor in numerous rural postings.
He continued with God’s work and also opened his own barber shop in 1965, which he ran until his retirement.
At that time, Davis and Iris enjoyed travelling the world together.
He was predeceased by his loving wife, Iris, in 1998.
He is survived by one son, David, and two granddaughters, Carissa and Kareen.
This gentle man will be missed in this world but our hearts rejoice for the wonderful reward he is receiving in heaven.
Funeral services were held at Calvary Temple (Buntian Chapel), 400 Hargrave St., on Wednesday, May 24, 2000 at 1 p.m., with Rev. H.H. Barber presiding.
Interment to follow at St. Vital Cemetery.
A special thanks to the doctors and nurses at Seven Oaks Hospital and to David’s favorite niece and nephew, Janice and Wayne, for their care giving and support.
