George Walter Hyatt, born in Baltimore Maryland, passed away November 9, 2011. George attended the University of Maryland before enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps at the start of the Korean War. George served from 1951- 1953 and fought bravely as an infantry sergeant with Easy Company, 2nd battalion, 2nd Marine Division. After the war, George returned to Bethesda where he met and married Patricia Kakos from Alexandria, Virginia. George and Pat started their family in Granby, Connecticut where George worked for the Standard Machine Screw Company in the engineering and customer service departments. George moved his family to Virginia Beach in 1968 when he was chosen to start U.S. distribution for the U.K. firm Hartridge Equipment Corporation. George retired from Hartridge as Vice-President of marketing in 1986 where he received the 1983 UK equipment design award personally from the Duke of Edinburgh. George was proud to spend many of his retirement years volunteering at the McArthur Memorial, where he maintained the general’s gun collection and helped create the museum’s Korean War exhibit, donating many personal items to the collection. George is survived by his loving wife of 56 years Patricia, his daughters Kathy and Tina, and son Glenn.

Can’t believe “GW”, as I always called him, is gone. He has always been around for much of my adult life. He was my boss, my dear friend, and very much a father figure for me. He gave me my first real job, was there for me through my divorce, the death of my Dad, the death of my Sister, the demise of Hartridge Equipment, and so many, many more trials in my life. I really wish I could hug his neck one more time. Since that is not possible, I’ll just say to his beloved Pat that I wish you God’s comfort and grace during this difficult time. GW and you, Pat, will always be close to my heart.

I’m thinking of Geroge and all the wonderful times we shared. One of the best times was the day he took my dad and me to the McArthur Memorial and gave us the “Grand Tour”. It was a great day in the company of a great man.

Pat,Tina,Glenn and Kathy you are in my thoughts also. I send sympathy,love and hugs to you at this time.

It was always a pleasure to be in George’s company and share our life and military experiences. He was a proud Marine who loved his family and country. “We have loved them during life; let us not abandon them until we have conducted them by our prayers into the house of the Lord”St. Ambrose

Thoughts & prayers for Cousin Pat, Kathy, Tina and Glenn..’Semper Fi’ George.
