  • Hatak Yearby - Marine KIA Iraq


    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.

              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,

              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.

                  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.
