Harrie Emile Hart Jr. ("Sparky"), 66, passed away peacefully in his sleep March 4, 2014 in Colorado Springs, CO.
The Guest Book is expired.
He was born in New York, NY May 9, 1947 but grew up in Colorado Springs, where he lived most of his life. He graduated from the Tilton School in Tilton, NH, where he was Captain of the Hockey team, and attended Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ. During the Viet Nam era, he served in the Air National Guard, both in Colorado and California. His careers encompassed everything from owning a radio station, selling real estate and dealing in used cars. Sparky was the kind of athlete that could master a new sport with no effort. He was a competitive golfer, loved CC Hockey, Liar's Poker at Deb's, eggs benedict and singing karaoke.
Preceding Sparky in death are his parents Harrie and Henriette Hart.
His sister Jane Henrich (Charlie) and brother Steve Hart survive him, as well as nephews Corbin Hart, Charlie Henrich, Ben Henrich and niece Holly Henrich and former wife Karen Peterson.
At a later date, there will be a small family gathering at The Broadmoor Community Church for interment in The Glen.
