John Hyatt

Remembering John Hyatt

With very heavy hearts and deep sadness, we share the loss of our friend and member of the festival family, John Hyatt.

John and his wife Mary have been dedicated volunteers and generous supporters of Festival of the Arts personally and through their business, John S. Hyatt & Associates, Inc. In 2017 John and Mary were presented with the Diane I. Casey “Spirit of festival” Award.

John loved the Grand Rapids arts community. He was an Actor, Lighting Designer, Technical Director, Scenic Designer, Photographer, Educator, and much more. He held spots on many community boards for film and theatre throughout his life and volunteered with many arts organizations. John took the time out of his day to talk with many artists who had projects going on. John's love for the arts ran deep and it was evident in his day to day actions.

Visitation: Friday, April 13, 6 - 9 pm at Arsulowicz Brothers, 3525 Remembrance Road NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49534

Service: Saturday, April 14, 3 pm at Civic Theatre, 30 N Division, Grand Rapids, MI 49503

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations to Festival of the Arts.

Our thoughts are with Mary, their family, and many friends, 

Jessi and Missy
2018 Festival of the Arts Co-Chairs
