Dutch was born in Jefferson, Iowa, on May 17, 1944, to Floyd and Genevieve “Genny” Hoyt. Dutch served our country with the United States Army National Guard. He had a passion for his family and his church, and he loved to speak about both with anyone who would listen.

In addition to Sandie, he leaves behind his children, Kay Lipke, Jeff Hoyt, Bob Lipke, Denny Hoyt, Wendy Hoyt, and Nick (Paul Reese) Hoyt. He also leaves behind sisters, Jean (Mike) Boone, and Laura (Mike) Sheeder; as well as many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and other extended family.

Dutch was preceded in death by a daughter, Charlene Lipke; and brothers, Clinton Hoyt and Lewis Hoyt.


The memorial service will be held from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on June 23 at Immanuel Baptist Church, with luncheon and fellowship to follow. All friends and family are welcome. The family asks that donations be made to Immanuel Baptist Church instead of flowers or other gifts.
