HATT, Myles R. With great sadness and after a very long fight, Myles R. Hatt passed away on September 10th from lung cancer. He was a loving husband to Suzana Cabrita and a loving father to his three children - Daddy's little princess Cassie, Michael and Bradley. He was also a loving grandfather, known as Papa to Parker, Rylee, Rogan and Coen. Myles left Chester Basin when he was 18 to serve his country. He was a man dedicated to his career, having served 27 years, 266 days, but who's counting (as Myles would say). Myles was a sergeant cook and he went above and beyond to make sure his troops were well fed. He was the first to bring Tim Horton's overseas & lobster dinners & the famous Fajita Fridays. Other camps would come to his camp because his food was so well known. He sailed on 7 ships and his favorite posting was Strathcona. Myles' favorite past time was rocking it out on his drums for 32 years. He was the drummer in the band Lowrider and the best entertainer there was. He sure could get everybody on their feet dancing. Myles was the loved son of Bruce and Marie Hatt. All 3 grew up in Chester Basin, Nova Scotia. The family would like to express their deep gratitude to the palliative care unit in the Victoria General Hospital for their loving and kind care of Myles in the last month of his life. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the veterans UN-NATO Canada, Nova Scotia Chapter. The family will be having visitation on Thursday, September 15th, at A.L. Mattatall funeral home, 217 Portland Street, Dartmouth, from 5pm to 8pm. Service to follow at the same location on Sunday, September 18th at 1pm. Reception and jam in Myles' honor will be held at the Buffalo Club in Eastern Passage at 625 Cowbay Rd. at 4pm. Myles was a well loved man and will not be forgotten.
