Celebration of Life

William D. “Sonny” Hart Sr.

Sonny passed away peacefully in his home June 7.

After a lengthy battle with cancer, the Lord took him into comfort. He was in hospice care at his home in Kansas City, Missouri.

His life of 77 years was spent helping others to excel and fulfill dreams of life, laughter and love.

As in life, Sonny’s wishes were to continue helping others with a donation to medical science through the University of Kansas (KU), a major research university with global reach.

Sonny was a veteran of the U.S. Army and served during the Vietnam War era.

He was preceded in death by his father, Melford; mother, Ida-Mae; brothers and sisters, Larry, John, Bruce, Mike, Donna and Sharon; and his wife of 27 years, Judith Perin Hart. He is survived by his children, William Hart Jr., Judith Hart Hazelwood, Ramona Hart Summers and Linda Stevens; along with several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
