Family-Placed Death Notice

HART, Charles E. Charles E. Hart, 83, of Dunwoody passed away February 25, 2012. Charlie was born in Worcester, MA and raised in Southbridge MA. He was the son of Charles and Genevieve Barrar Hart. He is survived by his wife, Mildred C. Hart of Danielson, CT and his daughter and son-in-law Kathy and Tim Hanofee of Big Canoe, GA, son James B. Hart of Atlanta, GA, daughter and son-in law Cynthia and Mark Edwards of Dunwoody, GA, son and daughter-in-law Charles M. and Patti Hart of Woodstock, GA, and daughter and son-in-law Suzanne and Jim Scales of Lawrence, KS. In addition, he is also survived by twelve grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Charlie was a graduate of Tabor Academy, Marion, MA, attended Dartmouth College for his freshman and sophomore years, and transferred to Holy Cross for his junior year. At the end of his junior year, he volunteered for the Navy during the Korean War and was assigned to the Pacific Fleet where he spent the next four months in San Diego and the remaining eighteen months at Sangley Naval Air Station, Cavite, Philippines. He returned to Holy Cross in 1953 graduating in 1954. Following graduation, Charlie joined Massachusetts Mutual, and six months later was assigned to the Houston, TX branch. In the following years with this company, he managed Houston, Springfield, MA, and Atlanta, GA group offices. In 1967, he came to Dunwoody with his family, serving as the Southeastern and Southwestern Regional Group Manager for the Provident Mutual of Philadelphia. The last ten years of his insurance career were spent with CNA of Chicago as the Southern Major Group Sales Manager. Charlie and his family were parishioners at St. Jude's Catholic Church in Sandy Springs. Among his church interests were 35 years as an usher, volunteer fund raiser, and RCIA ministry. In his retirement years, he enjoyed fundraising for the Atlanta Alzheimer Society. He belonged to the Knights of Columbus and American Legion Post 140. Travel throughout Europe, Asia, Caribbean, and South America kept him and his wife, Millie, busy. All in all, he viewed the month he spent camping with his sons and a nephew in Alaska, the weeks spent sailing in the Caribbean with his son, his daughters and sons' weddings, and the trips he took with his wife throughout the world as "what life is all about". Sandy Springs Chapel is in charge of the funeral arrangements. Mass will be at St. Jude's Catholic Church, Sandy Springs on Wednesday February 29, 2012 at 11:00 AM. The burial will follow at Arlington Cemetery in Sandy Springs. The family will receive friends on Tuesday evening from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the funeral home.
