​12/12/17 - We extend our sympathy to Lee and Kay Moore Hart in the death of Lee's father.

Silas Hart, 97, passed away Monday, December 11, 2017, at Symphony at Oaklawn Assisted Living facility in Louisville, KY.
Silas was born April 11, 1920, in Hoods Creek, KY, son of the late Henry Hart and Blanche Hatfield Hart Griffith. In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by his wife of 64 years, Lucy Tackett Hart; his sisters, Mary Opal Hart Smith and Inas Hart Huff; and half-sister, Bobbie Griffith.
He was an Army veteran of World War II, having served honorably in the U.S. Army 80th Division as a part of General George Patton's Third Army. He fought in the Ardennes and Rhineland battles in Central Europe and participated as a combat infantryman in the last 4 and half months of combat, resulting in Germany's surrender in May 1945.
He retired in 1982 after 40 years of service from Armco Steel where he was a foreman who was highly respected by management and fellow employees. In 1984 he and his wife moved from Ashland to Daytona Beach, FL, where they lived until 1991 when they moved to Louisville to be near family.
He was a member of Southeast Christian Church. He enjoyed playing golf, which he gave up at age 88. He loved watching NASCAR racing and University of Kentucky basketball.
He was the main resource person in the 2006 compilation of "A History of the Hart Family of Hoods Creek, Boyd County, KY". In August of 2009, he was the author of "Home Alive in 45", a compilation of his World War II experiences. A permanent copy of these historical documents are on file in the Ashland Public Library.
He is survived by two sons, Ralph Gordon Hart (Linda) of Indianapolis, IN, and Larry Lee Hart (Kay) of Louisville, KY. He is also survived by one sister, Hazel Hart Stephens of Marion, IN; brothers-in-law, Lloyd Tackett of Boynton Beach FL, and Henry Gilbert of Virginia; and many nieces and nephews. He was very proud of his five grandchildren, James Hart (Robin), Pendelton, IN, Julie Hart Grove (Eric), Evans City, PA, Lisa Kay Hart Robbins (Marc), Richmond, KY, Mary Beth Hart Coates (Jeff), Louisville, Larry Lee Hart, Jr (Renae), Louisville, and his 12 great-grandchildren, Kyle Hart (Jennifer), Brandon Hart (Michaela), Evan Hart (Rachel), Eli Grove, Emily Grove, Katelyn Robbins, Matthew Robbins, Natalie Coates, Hannah Coates, Nick Coates, Jessi Hart and Jacob Silas Hart; and one great-great-grandson, Jonathan Hart.
