Carl Lee Hart

Carl Lee Hart, age 74, passed from this life Monday, November 13, 2023, at home surrounded by family. Carl was born March 3, 1949 to the late Edward and Philemeno Hart in Aberdeen, Mississippi.

Carl’s life was the epitome of what Jesus could do to life. After ridding his life of worldliness surrendering to God’s call, his main ambition was to fill heaven up with everyone he met – wherever he met them.

He was preceded in death by his parents, one sister Marie Lewis and husband Ben and brother in law Al White.
