  1. BJ was 1 of a kind! Never judged anyone. Always full of Peace, Love, Unity, & Respect! He would give you the shirt off his back! Literally! He’s done it for me! He has so many friends that love him so much! And those friends are really his extended family! I love you brother!We are all going to miss you buddy! I know you will be watching over all of us from heaven! Much love! I’ll meet up with you 1 day!

  2. I’ve gotten a shirt off of his back, as well… but he was so much more than just that. He truly wanted nothing but happiness for anyone, even when they didn’t want happiness for themselves. I hadn’t seen him in a few years, and honestly, this is one friendship I’m very disappointed in myself for letting lapse. He helped me through some of the darkest times that I’ve ever faced, and I’d probably not be here if it were not for him.

    R.I.P. Brother. You were loved.

    • It really hit me hard today! We all love you Booj!!! We will be celebrating your life on monday and not a day will pass when i dont think of you! Drinking a Hornsby for you now! They don’t make them like you anymore! With so much love! I’ll see you one day!

  3. I first met Brother Hyatt when he was a trustee at the Brazos County Detention Center. He was consistently a sweet-natured, intelligent soul with an excellent sense of humor and a charming smile, and we had dozens of conversations about everything from Texas politics to our favorite movies. Every officer he worked with respected him and enjoyed his company. His untimely death is a tragedy.

  4. BJ aka Booj was the most generous loving person I ever knew. My favorite memory of him was the day he got random strangers in a gas station parking lot to donate change for enough gas for me to make it home. I will so miss his slow smile and the laugh that you always knew was his. He had a slow smile that always made you return it. My heart goes out to all he touched in this world. You shall live on in my memories, old friend!

  5. My Dearest Bj, I can’t stop thinking about the day we first met. I had felt like my life was done, that was until u walked into the room with a smile that lite up the room so bright it was Amazing. All of a sudden my hear felt warm and fuzzy. He was always telling me I deserved so much more than the life I was living. He took care of and supported two very young girls as f they were his own. But didn’t care who u r or where u come from, if he could he gave all his help. But u will always and forever be missed and unforgotten.

  6. All my heart is filled with sadness. BJ was a great man and always went out of his way to help! I am so sorry for your loss!

  7. BJ,
    I will never forget, scooby sandwiches from subway, being couch potatoes, how you always told me when I would cook dinner, “no veggies amber, I’m just a carnivore” extra fries and burgers when you worked the drive thru at mc Donald’s and jack in the box. 😉 I miss you, you were always there when I needed you. A true friend. I will never forget. So blessed to have you in my life!

  8. BJ, you will dearly missed.. I remember the good times we had as teens out at your Mom and Dad’s house!!! Plenty of memories were created out there for sure!!! My heart is hurting for you and your family… You Definitely were a good friend to me back then and I’ll always remember you for your kindness and how you treated others.. To the good ‘ol days my friend, see you again one day…

  9. We were all shocked to see BJ’s name in the obituaries, and had to read it twice to make sure it was the same BJ Hyatt from Synnove’s kindergarten days. We still have such great memories of BJ and Sam and Synnove — a particularly vivid one is of the three of them at Lake Bryan, using a styrofoam sailboat hull as a diving dock, clowning around with a lot of screaming and laughing. You have our deepest sympathy for this incomprehensible loss, and our prayers and thoughts are with you all.

  10. I so sorry for your loss. I knew BJ several years ago and really liked him. I hope you are surrounded by love getting through this tough time.

  11. Dear Dale & Family,
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss…..I just found you again online, only to now see that you & yours are in mourning at this time. Please forgive my terrible timing….
    Again, I am so sorry for your loss!

    Joel, Carol, Adam & Sam Phillips

  12. Gail informed me of tragic circumstances of B.J’s death. Reading these messages makes me wish I had known him. I hope you have as many wonderful friends as B.J had to help you through this terrible time.

    Wish we had known sooner, sincerely, Gwen and Randy Anderson
