Our big brother, Michael George Hart passed away on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 in Lucerne, Ca at the age of 73. Michael will be lovingly remembered by his brothers Stephen (Barbara) and Daniel (Luana). He will also be fondly remembered by his six nieces and nephews, Alicia (Niloy) Chatterjee, Nathan (Nichole) Hart, Emily (Chris) Hornsby, David Hart, Damon Hart, Shane (Kathryn) Ross and all of their children, Preston, Kaylee, Gabrielle, Julia, Andrew, Clayton, Justice, Hallie, and Kaia. Michael was born April 2, 1946 in California to Dr. Winfield and Dorothy Hart. He lived most of his life in Sacramento where he attended Sacramento High School and then Sacramento City College. Michael was always very athletic throughout his life participating in many sports and activities like football, baseball, boxing, swimming, golf, white water rafting, snow skiing, and bike riding. Michael had a great love of the outdoors and while in high school he earned the rank of an Eagle Scout. That passion of helping others and being in the outdoors transferred over to his many diverse occupations. Michael worked as a Fireman for the Arden Fire Department, he was a white water rafting guide on the American River, he was a member of the Squaw Valley Ski Patrol, a prospector, a taxi cab driver and dispatcher, and a bartender. Michael's last 15 years of his life were spent in Lucerne, CA. He loved the Clear Lake area, the people, and especially his family of friends at the Boathouse. Throughout Michael's life his greatest love was his dogs. Michael was a devoted animal lover and could never pass up an animal in need. Michael's Celebration of Life service will be private. Those who so desire may make memorial donations in memory of Michael to the SPCA of Lake County, 8025 Highway 29, Kelseyville, Ca 95451 or any SPCA of your choice.

Well, I was one of the lucky one's who was able to know him growing up in River Park. We got to play Little League together and after that his mother would pick Charles Evans and me up and take us over to the pool at Sacramento City College for swimming classes and our life saving badges. He was a STUD in that pool and I think he also set records while there. One story was his father would take him over to the American River and make him swim behind his power boat to get him into shape. Michael, thanks for the memories , your old pal Michael C Messina.

My sympathies to the family and friends of "Fireman Mike." I met him back in our 'boxing days' when I went a few rounds with him in the gym (he was bigger so he took it easy).

Ran into him many times over the years at the fights, movies, restaurants, etc., always sharing lots of memories and laughs. Will especially miss his wry, deadpan sense of humor.

Farewell "Smokey."
