Norman Hart Sept 1932 - February 2011 R.I.P.

After a long and courageous battle with a blood disease called myelodisplasia and congestive heart failure my father Norman Hart passed away February 9, 2011 here at home.
He was a veteran of the Korean war  where he fought on the 38th Parralel Line,Pork Chop Hill, Baldy Hill and Heartbreak Ridge. He was also a bronc and bull rider 
 and continued to love and care for horses even up into his elderly years. An avid fisherman and hunter he loved the Wind River Range of mountains in Wyoming where we will scatter his ashes this summer around the 4th of July. As a special tribute to my father we are planning a  Lone Charger Memorial Procession which we think would be
appropriate for him since he loved horses and fought in the Korean War. The
Memorial Procession is led by a lone riderless
horse with a pair of boots set backwards in the stirrups and the saddle stripped. An old horseman tradition.

His talents were many. Wonderful dancer, artist, mechanic and creative person in everything he did. He could take a piece of junk and make something beautiful with it.
His wildlife oil paintings are scattered all over the U.S.

R.I.P. Dad 
We love you and you will always be in our thoughts....

Your loving daughter... Marcie

Oh Marcie,

I find myself crying. What a loss for you. Our memories are so precious of the men who raised us. I lost my Dad in 1999.

Your Dad sure was good looking! And a true American Hero!

All the best and my prayers are with you.

Oh Marcie, I am so sorry for your loss. What a wonderful man! The tribute to your dad makes me miss my dad even more. Life goes on and time heals the pain somewhat, but it seems like there is always a hole, where someone is missing. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

Marcie, Just stopped by to see how you are doing. I hope you are still creating. Sometimes when we
lose someone dear to us, the desire to create diminishes. Please keep creating your wonderful art.
Much Love,
Dessa Rae
