In Memorium: John S. Hyatt

April 10, 2018 on 12:19 am | In General News | Comments Off on In Memorium: John S. Hyatt

April 9, 2018 – Members of Local 274 who have been active in the theatre at all may be familiar with the John S. Hyatt & Associates Company; a lighting rental house in Grand Rapids; they have been a valuable local source for gel, tools, and other lighting gear since 1984. It has come to our attention that the owner of JSHAA, Mr. John Samuel Hyatt, passed away before his time this past Saturday evening. Mr. Hyatt had been undergoing a regimen of chemotherapy for a malignant blood disease, and finally slipped away from us in his sleep.

The Local will be sending a card to Mr. Hyatt’s family and employees, expressing our collective sympathies and best wishes. Members wishing to pay personal respects are hereby notified that the family will be receiving visitations this coming Friday, April 13, from 6pm to 9pm at the Arsulowicz Brothers Mortuaries, at 3525 Remembrance Rd NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49534.

Funeral services for John will be held Saturday, April 14, beginning at 3pm, at the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre, 30 N Division St, Grand Rapids, MI 49503.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that people donate to the Grand Rapids Festival of the Arts in memory of John.
