Buddy Hart

December 25, 1950 ~ September 9, 2021 (age 70)



At 9:20 AM on Thursday September 9, 2021, Jesus took his precious child, Dwight “Buddy” Hart, to his heavenly home.  
Dwight Ernest Hart was born on December 25, 1950 (Christmas!) to Ernest and Doris (Brown) Hart at McCray Hospital in Kendallville IN.

Buddy was born with a severe case of Cerebral Palsy and the family doted on him, cared for him, loved him.  He was spoiled and pampered, as it should be.  They learned of his special needs and how to help him whenever and however he needed it.   

At eighteen years old, his mother could no longer care for him at home.  Therefore, Buddy spent the rest of his years in local nursing facilities with the last one being Kendallville Manor.  Everyone loved Buddy at The Manor and gave him great care.  

Survivors include sister Diana (Steven) DePew, brother Neal (Karla) Hart of Kendallville, several nieces and nephews, great nieces & nephews and great, great nieces and nephews.  

Preceding him in death were his parents, Ernest Hart and Doris Hart.  Also his sister, Barbara Stollar and nephew, Johnny Stollar.  

There will be a private graveside service at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery.
