Art “Pat” Hoyt, age 77, passed away peacefully June 10, 2022, in Sedro-Woolley, Washington. Art was born in Mount Vernon, WA April 18, 1945, to Leroy and Ida (Jensen) Hoyt of Sedro-Woolley. He graduated from Sedro-Woolley High School in 1964. Art served his country in the Army and was a veteran of the Vietnam War.
On April 28, 1968, he married the love of his life, Cheryl Cook. Art and Cheryl settled in Renton, WA where Art worked for a trucking company for over 20 years before retiring in 1992 to move to the Philippines as missionaries. They served in Manila and later Cavite for over eight years.
Art and Cheryl returned to Renton where they served at their home church, Highlands. They retired to Montana in 2007 near their daughter, Janine and resettled back to Skagit County near Alicja soon before Cheryl’s passing in 2016.
Art enjoyed his grandchildren immensely. From “Grandpa Care” with Henry and Olivia to hanging out with Isaac and Mikayela. He was proud of his service to our country and his service to the Lord through his church and missionary work.
Art loved coffee and made friends with every barista at his favorite coffee spots. He loved his hot rod and could yell at the tv screen during his Seahawks football games like no other.
Art is survived by his daughters, Alicja (Seth) Howell of Clearlake, WA and Janine (Alan) Wilkes of Nine Mile Falls, WA; grandchildren, Mikayela Nutting (Kaiti Johnson), Isaac Howell, Henry and Olivia Zeller; brother, Michael (Kathy) Hoyt and family friend and caregiver, Sausha Nutting.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Leroy and Ida Hoyt and his beloved wife, Cheryl.
The family would like to thank Sharon, Lindsey, Linda and Amy at Cross Creek for the love and care they provided to Art.
A Graveside Service will be held later this summer at the Entiat Cemetery in Chelan County, Washington. Share your memories of Pat and sign the online guest register.
