Tony K. Hart (64) born on June 17, 1956, was scooped straight up into the arms of heaven on December 29, 2020 to be with Jesus and reunited with the cherished family, friends and pets who had gone before him. He has truly answered the call of the wild to go home for the great eternal adventures that are to come.
Tony was a native of both Arkansas & Arizona. He absolutely loved The Lord & believed in being kind to strangers who may be Angels in disguise. He served in the US Army as a Medical Corpsman and Nurse Aide. He attended college in Flagstaff, AZ and held several mechanical, maintenance and hospitality positions over the years. He loved reading, writing, hiking, camping, prospecting and exploring the great outdoors. He had & will always have such a sweet, humble, giving heart full of such kindness for those in need and for all of the animals he came across in his path.
Tony was preceded by his parents, Donald H. Hart, Sr. & Mercile (Miller) Hart; his brother Steven R. Hart; and most recently his beloved dog & faithful companion Smokey.
Tony is survived by his brother Donald H. Hart, Jr. (wife Darlene); his niece Jennifer S. Hart; his grand-nieces Iona M. Hart & Hephzibah N. Hart; his sister Linda K. Hart; his nephew Jesse L. Drohen (wife Amy); precious aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and forest critters.
In Tony’s memory donations or your time can be made to your local animal/wildlife rescue/nature preserve/outreach.
Luke 5:16 “So He Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed.”
