Rick Hart aka Robert R. Hart, age 62 of Newcomerstown, Ohio, while at home in the company of his loving family, peacefully fell asleep in Jesus on July 29, 2019 in faith of the promise of the resurrection to eternal life through Jesus Christ, his Lord and Savior. Rick loved the Lord Jesus with his whole heart and lived out the principles of his faith daily by letting Christ shine through him to serve others. He was a member of the Seventh-Day Adventist church and faithfully served as a deacon for many years.
He was born October 3, 1956 to Robert L. and Sadie Hart.
Rick is survived by his wife of 28 years, Jeri and son Riley. He loved his family and their pets and enjoyed spending time with them. There was “no place like home.”
Rick met his wife Jeri while operating a full-service carwash and detail shop. He loved working with cars… and owning them! They were married in the fall of 1991, and their son Riley, was born to them in the winter of 1993, and is the joy of their lives. Together as a family they have enjoyed their life working side by side and finding joy in worshipping and loving Jesus through serving others.
Rick was a dedicated, loving husband and father. Humble and kind-hearted, full of laughter, and cheerful. He always wore a warm smile, never met a stranger, and was willing to help anyone at any time. He was a “one of a kind” very special person who was admired and respected by his family, friends and piers.
Rick professionally drove a semi-truck for over 40 years with various companies, attaining many achievements and was awarded for driving over 3 million miles safely throughout his career.
Recently, together with his wife Jeri, Rick operated his own trucking company, 3 Harts Trucking, Inc. He leaves his legacy to his family and has contributed to the trade in many ways, making friends everywhere he went.
