Millard Claude Hatch, 59, returned to his Heavenly Father on January 4, 2019 in American Fork. He was born March 16, 1959 to Claude and Suzann Barney Hatch in Panguitch, Utah. Millard was married for a short while to Shelly Limb.
Millard grew up in Panguitch attending elementary, middle and high school, graduating in 1977. He served an LDS mission in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Millard participated in many activities in high school including wrestling and basketball. He had many close friends and instantly made friends with whom ever he came in contact with.
Millard was a kind, thoughtful and caring person. He excelled in whatever he put his mind to. He loved his family more than anything and always had a close relationship with his parents. They enjoyed many letters, cards and phone calls. Millard loved to spend time in the outdoors. Whether it was hunting deer, shooting rabbits or looking for arrowheads. He had a deep love and understanding for the gospel and only wanted the best for himself and others.
He will be greatly missed. Heaven certainly gained a beautiful spirit.
Millard was a great example to many, many people and held many leadership roles in his lifetime. He had many trials to overcome in this earthly life and had constant battles he fought for many years.
He is survived by his father, Claude; siblings: Michele (Leland) Pollock, Panguitch; Claude B (Vanna) Hatch, Colorado Springs, CO; Ann (Justin) Hatch, Clovis, CA; and 7 nieces and nephews; 3 great-nieces and nephews.
