Mine Hill: Andrew Robert Van Tine Hart, 54, died peacefully in his sleep on July 25, 2018. Andy was born in Morristown, N.J. on July 27, 1963, son of the late Allison B. Hart and Joy V.T. Hart.
He attended Bernards High School, and received his Bachelor’s degree at Rowan University. Andy began his career teaching at West Deptford High School and the Deron School. He also owned and managed the Apollo Pool Company, and for the past 18 years was employed as a driver, sharing his smiles for the FedEx Corp. He loved his customers, friends and fellow associates, who would regularly call him out by a favorite nickname, such as Buuuddy or Drew! He was always positive in his outlook on life, and known by the genuine smile and greeting to all those who were lucky to have known him. Making his home available to a friend in need, and from time to time to those he did not know, he was a man that lived faith in ways that never boasted. Sharing vacation and holidays with friends and family, near and far, Andy spread his special care and love to them all. He loved a friendly game of poker, and also travelled across the country to catch a professional football game in lots of stadiums, but always rooted for his favorite Pittsburgh Steelers. He lived with his dog, Tipper, who he cared for with love as only Andy could.
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sister, Melissa Hart. He will be greatly missed by his surviving brother, Thomas (Martha) Hart of North Carolina, sister, Kate (Ray) Charley of Pennsylvania, nieces and nephews Catherine Hart and Elizabeth Hart of North Carolina, Thomas Webb Hart of California, Michael Charley, Thomas Charley and Sarah Raye Dumnich of Pennsylvania, as well as his grand nephews and nieces, Andrew Charley, Jacob Charley, Clara Charley and Sophia Charley.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Andy’s memory to the 11th Hour Rescue, P.O. Box 218, Rockaway NJ 07866 would be appreciated.
Memorial Visitation will be held 1-3pm and 5-7pm on Sunday, August 5th, 2018 at the Bermingham Funeral Home, 216 S. Main St., Wharton.
Interment will be private.
