1948 ~ 2003
Dr. David Lynn Hatt passed away peacefully Sunday morning, 11/23/03, at 10:25 a.m. David was a wonderful father, husband and grandfather.
David was born April 17, 1948 in Driggs, Idaho to William Clarence Hatt, and his mother, Lois Hansen Hatt. He is preceded in death by his father, oldest brother, Leslie, younger sister, Karen, and youngest daughter, Hailey Joan Hatt.
He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Joan Wayment Hatt; his mother, Lois Hansen Hatt; his brother G. Dean Hatt; his sisters, Drinda Hatt Creekemore, Patty Hatt Jeffs, Debbie Hatt Tunstall, and Kammy Hatt Hurst; his son, Christopher David Hatt; daughters, Hillary Maren Hatt Nielsen, Brittany Lynn Hatt Johnson, and Kimberly Brook Hatt McEvoy; and his adoring grandchildren, Christopher Steven Hatt, Sierra Florence Beléén Hatt, Zachary Jared Nielsen, Trinity Lynn Johnson, and Madisen Eden McEvoy.
David attended Burley High School and graduated with the class of 1966. He served in the North Germany mission from 1968 to 1970. He graduated from BYU in 1973 cum laude with a BA in Psychology and minors in German, English, chemistry and zoology. In 1978 he graduated from the University of Utah Medical School and then completed a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona. A skilled physician, he used his unassuming and comforting bedside manner to help the many patients he served in Utah County from 1982 to 2003. He took great joy in assisting the miracle of life delivering over four-thousand babies over the course of his career. Traveling to historical sites and enjoying the rich history of his religious and national heritage were favorite pastimes. Ever the gardener, he enjoyed turning his backyard into a beautiful and fruitful escape. Reading, family history work, and playing with his grandchildren were passions which he pursued with vigor.
