Casey Hyatt, Jr., 80, of Chesterfield, passed away on Tuesday, June 13, 2017, after a courageous hard-fought battle with a lengthy illness. He is survived by his beloved wife of 54 years, Carol; son, Chris; grandson, Casey and numerous extended family, friends and co-workers. He was preceded in death by his brother, Jennice Hyatt. Casey loved his family, pets, and friends. He served in the National Guard for four years and owned and operated Casey's Welding Service for over 45 years, drawing his last arc in April of this year. He welded at most of the Virginia power plants and traveled to many other cities and states to repair damage to their power systems. When broken parts were taken to other shops and could not be fixed, they would say take it to Casey, who was a master welder and fabricator of all metals. His other interests included competitive turkey shoots and stock car racing which he began in 1967 on dirt tracks, driving cars he worked on himself. He drove modified and late model Sportsman Series on many race tracks. Casey enjoyed the early years of NASCAR, when he raced against other drivers at Richmond Fair Grounds Speedway. In the 70's and 80's, he and his wife enjoyed go-cart racing at various tracks around the area. The family wishes to give special thanks to Dr. Mark Newton for his longtime care and compassion and also, Dr. Adam Kaiser for his involvement in Casey's treatment. The family will receive friends from 2 to 4 pm on Sunday, June 18, 2017 at Morrissett Funeral and Cremation Service, 6500 Iron Bridge Rd. (rt. 10). A Celebration of his Life will begin at 4 pm with a reception to follow. Dress casual, just as Casey would have been when you visited his shop; jeans and shirt. Please, no flowers. Instead go out and perform a random act of kindness for your fellow man.
