Archibald Hart III, “Tom”, passed away at home
in Highlands, NC, on May 15, 2020, after a
valiant battle with cancer. A native Californian,
Tom is survived by his wife of 29 years, Kathy
Duvall Hart of Highlands; his son, Dominic
Petersen Hart; his grandson, Chase Barneson
Hart (Lindsey), and his great-granddaughter, Layla Ruth
Hart, all of Sacramento, CA. He was preceded
in death in 2009 by his son, Christian Barneson
Hart. Tom was an avid tennis player for most of
his life, but his true passion was vintage Italian
sports cars, which he raced all over the world.

The profound and lasting impact that Tom
had on those who knew and loved him, is
He was a man of great kindness, dignity, and
grace. Tom left us a better world because
he was fully engaged in life, giving
love, strength, and an uplifting spirit to all whom he
touched. Tom deeply loved his wife and grew to love
their life in the welcoming community of Highlands.

Though grieving this immense loss, Tom’s family finds
comfort in the words of a close family friend: “‘How
like life. The dark times of sorrow and grief are an
unbearable reality, but there are also times
of joy, elation, and such beauty that blinds the eye.
All of this is blended together into the most profound
epic that God is directing. The dark times are
intricately immeshed with the deep richness and depth
that is life.’”

As Tom wished, there will be no service. His ashes
will be taken to California to be interred at his
beloved Klamath.

Tom was one of my favorite customers at Bryson's Food Store. I served him many times. Always pleasant and just a good guy. I will miss him. I saw him a few weeks ago and he did not look well but I had no idea that he had cancer. Prayers going out to his family and know that he will be missed ......May he rest in peace....
