May 27, 1934 – Jan 16, 2018
With loved ones at his bedside, 83-year-old Thomas Brian Hart passed away at the Elk Valley Hospital on Tuesday, January 16, 2018. He was born in the United Kingdom on May 27, 1934 to parents Thomas and Dorothy Hart.
In 1956, just a few months before his 22nd birthday, Brian married the beautiful young woman who had captured his heart, Patricia Cridland. Before too long the Hart family was completed with the arrival of three daughters: Sandra, Julie and Lisa ….. each one “daddy’s little girl”.
A loving, devoted husband and father, family was always first and foremost in Brian’s life. He lived by the motto “the family that plays together stays together”, and instilled this belief into his children and grandchildren. Card games, board games, crossword puzzles …. there was always some kind of game being played in the Hart home. He was also an avid dart player and enjoyed the comradery shared with fellow dart players.
Brian genuinely embraced life and all those around him. He loved to have a good time; he enjoyed listening to music, and he loved to dance! There was always lots of laughter when Brian was around!
Brian will be lovingly remembered for his Welsh patriotism, those mischievous, sparkling eyes, his warm smile and his hearty laugh. Rest in Peace, Brian. You will be very dearly missed.
Brian is survived by his beloved wife of almost 62 years, Pat Hart, his precious daughters: Sandra (Steve) Hanson, Julie (Butch) Cromar, and Lisa Plessis (Dave Hall), and his grandchildren: Clayton, Mitchell, Krystle, Cody, Josh, and Jordan as well as his brother Derek (Wendy) Hart.
He was predeceased by his parents, his stepfather Nathaniel, and his sister Jean.
A Memorial Service was celebrated at Cherished Memories “Serenity Chapel” on Sunday, January 21st with Meghan Weber, Celebrant.
