Peter Hart Obituary

“The details of my life are quite inconsequential.”
-Dr. Evil, PhD (1997)

Peter L. Hart Sr. (57) of Indianapolis, has passed away. He has taken an extended leave of absence effective March 6th, 2024.

He was preceded in death by his parents Paul & Mary Hart, siblings Patrick Hart and Sherry Hart, as well Charlie and Sadie (iykyk)

He is survived by his children, Peter L. Hart II (Alyssa), Brittany McCollom (Eric), Samantha Raisor (Devin), and Cameron Hart. He was the beloved “PawPaw Dee” to Peyton and Parker Hart, Kash McCollom, Kori and Maverick Raisor. He also took special pride in being “Pete Dawg” to Ambur Smilko (Steven), Janice Strange, Jakeb and Julio Rodriguez (Julie) Meade, and Courtney and Cecilia Smilko. He is also keeping seats saved for his remaining siblings, friends, and millions of followers across the world.

A painter by trade, he also invented Salisbury Steak, once referred to as “Pete Steak”, before losing the patent in a grueling court battle against the Indiana BMV. He enjoyed long walks throughout many varied landscapes. Rumor has it he once walked on the moon, and scholars believe he actually popularized the act. His mechanical wizardry knew no bounds, including intuitive solutions such as using duct tape and various items to repair just about any automative quagmires. 

He will be missed by any and all fortunate enough to have known him.
