Memories Timeline


  1. This is one of the most honest person I have ever know.I have thanked him so often for looking after my grand-daughter Annastacia on the school bus K-5 but never felt I repaid him. He will be missed in the community. We loved you Bill and I know you are looking down on us today. Kay an John Richardson

  2. I was saddened to hear of the passing of a good friend. Bill was one of the happiest people I have ever had the privilege of knowing. I will never forget his kindness and love he showed to my mother and daddy, Paul and Ida Howell. He was always the same where ever you saw him. He will be missed.

  3. I knew Bill Hyatt as an outstand-
    ing school bus driver. It was my pleasure as the representative of the North Carolina School Bus and
    Traffic Safety Section of Motor
    Vehicles to have trained him and to
    recertify him from time to time. He
    was an outstanding example for the
    children who rode his bus. We will
    miss him.
