In Memoriam: Oliver Dylan Hyatt

It is with deep regret that I inform the USF community about the unexpected and peaceful death of student Oliver Dylan Hyatt on December 22nd, 2022.

Ollie was 19, a sophomore studying biology, a native of San Francisco, and a graduate of Lincoln High School. Ollie’s family and friends describe him as, “full of light”, “mischievous”. “someone who loved to make people laugh,” “very good natured,” “a fashionista”, and “a world traveler”. Ollie loved Ocean Beach, skateboarding, food, urban exploration, animals, athletics, his family and friends of all ages. Ollie was especially proud to be a student here at the University of San Francisco. 

My prayers and condolences go to Ollie’s family and friends, and particularly to his parents, Bernardine and Michael, and sisters, Frankie and Allie. 

A celebration of Ollie’s life will be held on Saturday March 25th at the Maraschi Room in Fromm Hall, (behind St Ignatius church)  from 10:00 am-12:00 pm. Reception follows. 

Notes of condolence may be written to:
