Hatak Yearby - Marine KIA Iraq

Hello,

Your administrator told me how to post this information. A young Marine from Marietta, OK was killed in Iraq on Saturday. He and his father, Justin Yearby, are Indian Dancers and I have seen that Hatak was listed by some as one of the favorite Indian dancers.

There is no word on when the services will be held but I will post again when there is news.

Please keep this Marine, his wife and his family in your prayers.

Sincerely,

Kathy Davis
Proud mom of LCpl Jon Davis, USMC

Condolences for Hatak's family

I will be making a memory book. It will have messages from Marine parents from all over the country. I would be honored to include a section from people on this board. If you want to send a letter or any pictures that you have of Hatak, I will place them in a section by itself. I talked to the Yearbys today. They are truly some of the nicest people I have ever met. I have never met more gracious people even though they are in deep mourning.

The services have not been announced. I will post here when they are.

Thank you,

Kathy
Proud mom of LCpl Jon

Grieving the loss of a noble Native American.

PS. I just learned that Hatak means Free Man.

Hatak Yearby a man who served his family, tribe and country well.

It was hard to hear the news when my phone rang this morning telling me that Hatak passed away over the weekend. I remember when I first met him and his family at a powwow in Texas about 6 years ago. Hatak and his family were the one of the nicest people one could meet at a powwow. They would treat you like family and if you were down they would take and bring your spirits up.

It was very hard for us when we first heard that Hatak was being shipped off to Iraq back in March. But we knew this is what he had to do and he wanted to show his support our country. We were also very very happy to hear about his marrage to Lindsey just before his shipping off. She's a lovely girl and knew they belonged together.

Our prayers go out to Lindsey his wife, Justin, Mary, Shema and the rest of his family. May god bless all of you in your time of need. We all know Hatak is in a good place and he will be missed by many.

Achukma Hatak Himita

My daughter, Jennifer Rowden Kemp, attended SOSU Upward Bound with Hatak and Lindsey Yearby and was dear friends with him. I was honored to have the opportunity to meet Hatak, and was very impressed with him. He was a very nice young man who had beautiful hair that matched his beautiful spirit. I wish I had been honored to see him dance, but I am positive that he is now dancing for the Great Spirit Chihowa. I will choose to take the only comfort I can find in this heart-breaking event, and that is that when I reach my final destination I will once again be honored to meet up with Hatak. My heart cries for his family and new wife, and I pray for a comfort that surpasses all understanding for you all.

Hatak Yuka Keyu was my little brother. It breaks my heart but I know he did what he wanted to. He was a warrior and as a little kid and young man danced the style of the warrior. He will never be forgotten. My brother loved life and loved his people just as much. When you needed something he did what he could to help out.
Mom, Dad, Lindsey, and Sisters are hurting now and I would like everyone to keep them in their prayers.
I know all the old warriors from past wars are proud of my little brother. He will be honored up in the sky and also here on earth. I loved him alot and will miss him dearly. Mvto

Hatak

I was sad when I heard about Hatak, I couldn't stop crying. Through the pow wow vine our family also heard on Mother's Day. I have know this man since he was a child and feel as if I have lost a little brother. My heart as a mother goes out to his mother and father for the child they have lost and now have to bury before his time. My heart aches for Lindsay as a wife who has lost the love of her life. I cannot say how much I regret that I will never see his cheezy smile again, or hear his laughter. My prayers and sympathy go out to everyone who knew him and everyone's who's heart he touched. Never was there a more beautiful spirit in this world that touched so many, and brought so much happiness. He will truely be missed by all that danced beside him in the arena, that knew him outside the arena, and by those he sought to protect by being a Marine.


Chief Aupumut, Mohican. 1725

"When it comes time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home."
