Gary's Obituary



Burlington -- Gary Ernest Hart, born April 19, 1999, died unexpectedly Tuesday, February 20th, 2001, following a seizure. Gary was a loving presence in our family, and leaves a large space behind that will never be filled. He was independent, adventurous, and curious about the world; at the same time, he was quick to ask to be picked up or hugged. He was affectionate, and developed special bonds with those who knew and cared for him.

Gary leaves behind his beloved older brother Daniel, and his parents, Pamela Laser and Eric Hart, all of Burlington; his grandparents: Dorry and Kurt Laser of Clintondale, NY, Jenifer Morgan of Celo, NC, and Robert Hart of Maynard, MA; his aunts and uncles: Peggy and Sam Brewer, of Ithaca, NY, Gail Laser and Tom Enright, of New York City, and Linda Hart, of Celo, NC. Gary touched the lives of many people, including his cousins, who loved to play with him, and the children and neighbors in his neighborhood.

Gary joins the memories of his namesakes: his uncle, Gary Wayne Laser, who pre-deceased him in January, 1985, and his grandfather, Ernest Morgan, who pre-deceased him in October, 2000.

We would like to express our deep gratitude to Gary's caregivers, and to the medical staff and doctors who cared for him and us with respect and consideration.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, February 24th at 2:00pm in the Burlington Unitarian Universalist Church. If people are moved, flowers are welcome, or a contribution may be made to the early childhood music program which Gary loved, and which enriched his life musically and socially:
