Robert Lee “D.D” Wyatt was the seventh of ten children born to the late Ennis and Vera Evans Wyatt on August 12, 1947 in the Oak Grove Community of Chester, TX. He departed this earthly life on September 9, 2020 and transitioned into eternal rest when the Heavenly Father called him home.

He is preceded in death by his parents, brothers, Claude Wyatt and Lawrence “Wayne” Wyatt, and his sisters, Lillie Mae Berry and Bonnie Jean Darden.

He attended school and graduated with his high school diploma from Chester High School, Palestine Community, in Chester, TX. He worked various jobs, but he was affectionately known for the work he did at Chester ISD for many years. While he held the title of custodian, he was so much more to the students and staff there. For many, he was a great friend, a mentor, an uncle, a father figure, a brother, and one of the biggest sports enthusiasts on that campus. Even after he fell ill, he still supported the students and staff in any way that he could. He consistently placed the need of others above his own and sacrificed to help everyone he could. He was loved by all, because he loved ALL. It did not matter who you were, where you were from, or even what color you were. In his eyes, everyone was a child of God and was worthy and deserving of love. Because of this, D.D. never encountered a stranger.

D.D. united with the Palestine Missionary Baptist Church in Chester, TX at a young age where he remained until his passing. Anyone who knew D.D. knew that he was an avid music lover. Music was his gift and his ministry, and he enjoyed traveling to participate in various concerts and workshops. He graciously served as a musician, choir director, and singer at Palestine Missionary Baptist Church until he fell ill. He also did his part to keep the children of the community connected to God by hosting Vacation Bible School during many summers. While he was at the Dogwood Trails Manor Nursing Home in Woodville, TX, D.D. spent countless hours studying his bible, listening to and learning new songs, and ministering to people over the phone. It was his hope that he would be healed and resume his ministry here on earth, but our Heavenly Father had other plans. D.D. was healed, but he was healed on the other side, and there is no doubt that he has now joined the Heavenly Choir, doing what he loved to do, praising God through song and worship.

He leaves the following to cherish his memories: 2 sisters: Louise Johnson -Chester, TX; Eddie Darden (Billie)-Houston, TX. 3 brothers: Charles Wyatt – Houston, TX; Rev Lester Wyatt (Karen)-Beaumont, TX; Rev Albert Wyatt (Senortha)-Chester, TX. He also leaves behind a wealth of nieces, nephews, and countless special friends to include: Dr. Sandra Wright, Ms. Celeste Lee-Wyatt, Ms. Sheila Copes, Mr. & Mrs. Dewey Rivers, Rev. & Sis. Gambrell, Mrs. Gladys Toney, Ms. Linda Cavanaugh, Sis. Angela Jefferson, Ms. Anna Young, Ms. Glenda Butler, Mr. & Mrs. John Martin, and the wonderful staff at the Dogwood Trails Manor Nursing Home in Woodville, TX.

DD truly lived the life that he sang about. He was a devout Christian and loved GOD. I can remember him sitting on the porch talking to my granny. He would always take me to VBS every summer. I know my Mom is rejoicing to see hm again. I am sure they are talking each other’s ear if, as they often did here on earth. I
am so thankful and happy that I went to Dogwood Nursing facility to see him. He was a so happy! Thanks DD for all you did for me and my granny. You loved us like family.
Close Friends and Dancing partners—together again!
DD and Kankie
