David James Hart
Larger than Life
1977 - 2011
David Hart passed away on October 6, 2011, at Rogue Valley Medical Center. All of his friends and family have struggled with how to speak of Dave and understand how at 34 years of age his heart gave up. And in that struggle, the irony of his name, the thoughts of his young family, and the larger than life persona of David can all be summed up with the words, "David, you always made us laugh as you honked the loud horn of your big rigs, you made us remember our own family with your commitment to yours, and you gave us your heart with your friendship. In the end, you gave us so much of your heart that it finally needed a rest."
David's short life was full, and he made the most of every day. As president of the Medford Cruise Association, Dave helped raise over $300,000 for local youth programs. Dave always kept his wife and children by his side at work or riding quads at the Dunes.
David is survived by his amazing wife, Andrea; his beautiful children, Katelyn, Carlene, Casidy, Skyler and Lucas; his mother, Linda; brothers amd sisters; and hundreds of friends.
