Robert H. Wyatt passed away at Spanish Oaks Retreat, Savannah, Georgia on June 23, 2016 at the age of 69. Robert was the son of the late Herbert and Dolores Wyatt and was preceded in passing by his beloved brother David Wyatt of Lexington, Kentucky.
Bob is survived by Debbie Wyatt, his wife and best friend of 42 years who he married in Jacksonville, Florida on August 10, 1974. Bob is lovingly remembered by his brother Peter; his sons, Philip and Kenny Wyatt; Kenny’s wife, Ashley; his two grandsons, Theo and Ethan; his niece, Karen Wyatt and sister-in-law, Terry Wyatt.
Bob was born in Lexington, Kentucky on March 21, 1947, and, always an extremely intelligent young man, left high school a year early to attend Centre College, from which he graduated in 1968. He went on to earn an M.S. in Chemistry from CalTech in 1971, and an M.D. from the University of Kentucky in 1975. He successfully completed a residency program in neurology at the Ohio State University.
Bob practiced clinical neurology with Neurological Associates of Columbus, Ohio for thirty years. He loved his work and attended to each patient with sincere compassion and concern and to each Ohio State intern with patience and good humor. He contributed to his community with his vast intellect and delighted fellow parishioners of Worthington Baptist Church with his rich tenor voice.
His true passion, however, was his family. He shared proudly in the career accomplishments of his wife and sons and was happiest being out in the world with them. Whether he was tramping through Scotland with Debbie; touring Paris with Phil; golfing with Kenny in Arizona; or hiking and biking with the whole family through the forests and farmscapes of his adopted Ohio home, he was at his best with them. He will be profoundly missed.
A memorial service will be held at First Baptist Church, 223 Bull Street, Savannah, Georgia on July 2, 2016 at 11:00 A.M. A lunch reception for friends and family will be held immediately following the service in Lewis Hall located behind the sanctuary on W. McDonough St. The Reverend John Finley will be officiating.
