James Robert Hart Jr.

By From page A4 | June 02, 2014

Jan. 29, 1954 — May 25, 2014

James “Jim” Robert Hart Jr. passed away on May 25, 2014, while sailing from Ketchikan, Alaska, to Vancouver, Canada, at the age of 60. Jim was born in Nebraska in 1954 and was a longtime resident of Fairfield, Calif. He spent his entire career in the drug store industry working for various companies as a stockboy, manager, mentor and friend. Those who knew him will remember him as a man of principle, compassion, integrity and humor. But more than his own successes in life and business, he was deeply proud of the accomplishments of his wife and children. At the time of his passing, he had recently left the drugstore business to start a new business venture with his son.

Jim is survived by his wife, Jan, his two children, and a large group of family, friends and colleagues that will miss him dearly.

A memorial celebration will be held in Jim’s honor on Saturday, June 7, 2014. Friends and family are encouraged to attend and are kindly requested to contact the family for additional information at [email protected] In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the American Heart Association in Jim’s honor.
