WEARE - Stephen M. Hart, 46, passed peacefully at his home in Weare in the care of his wife and family on July 24, 2014.A joyfully outgoing man of many talents, Steve heroically battled cancer for over a year. His final weeks were spent reflecting the love of dozens of visitors, listening to his favorite music (occasionally playing air guitar), and frequently joking to put people at ease. He was known for his warm heart, frankness, appreciation for good food, playing and producing music, and deep love of his wife of six years, Andrea (Cusson).Steve was born in Scarborough, Maine, youngest son of Helen J. (Sebasteanski) and Emery W. Hart. The family moved from Gorham, Maine, to Nashua, where Steve graduated from high school. He taught himself to play guitar, drums and keyboards, and began performing and singing in rock groups. He and friends formed a band called Scuf, which recorded an album in 1993.He studied quality assurance at New Hampshire College in the mid-1990s, and later went on to work in New York City at a television production company. His enduring passion was playing music, and a highlight of his life was joining former Frank Zappa guitarist Mike Kennealy in a performance.Steve had an encyclopedic knowledge of musicians and could recall the names of countless performers, what bands they had played in and, quite often, when he had met them personally.Hart moved back to Nashua in 2004, and in 2006 he joined the team at GovConnection, a division of PCConnection. His distinguished career was complemented by the many friends he made in all levels of the company, and he became especially fond of his clients in the Midwest.He continued to perform in a band on weekends, and it was at a show that he met his future wife, Andrea. During their life together, they enjoyed visiting New York City, Ogunquit Beach, Magog, Quebec, going to concerts and having friends over to play music. Steve loved cooking and family gatherings, and he spent his free time writing and recording original songs - including playing all the instruments and singing vocals. He taught Andrea how to play bass guitar and was always excited to talk about his favorite movies, music and "brushes with fame."Steve was a genuine, loving man who never walked into a room without shaking hands or hugging everyone. He found the good in every situation and was an upbeat soul who made friends in all parts of the country; it was not unusual for him to bump into someone he knew while traveling in another state.During his last weeks, he was tirelessly cared for at home by his wife, parents-in-law, brother Dennis and a devoted group of lifelong friends, including Stephan Fortuna, Brian Brodeur of New Jersey, Kris Kuchinski of Utah, Pat McHenry, T Powers, Kristin Paris and Rich Fauteux - all dedicated to being there for their "brother."In addition to his wife and friends, Steve is survived by his two sons, Alexander and Quinton of Concord, Mass.; his brothers, Emery W. "Bill" Hart Jr. and his wife, Jacquie, of North Grafton, Mass., Elliot A. "Tony" Hart and wife Sue of Merrimack, W. James Hart and wife Beth of Buford, Ga., and Dennis M. Hart and wife Marge of Auburn; his sister, Sharron H. Greko and husband Steve of Scottsdale, Ariz.; brother-in-law C. Scott Monroe of Nashua; many beloved nieces and nephews; and a large group of lifelong friends.He was predeceased by his parents and his sister, Catherine J. Monroe.
