Jonathan Anthony Hart passed away suddenly in his home in Clintonville, Ohio Tuesday, he was 57 years old. Jon is survived by his wife Michelle, stepdaughter Brittany Darby, former wife Anne Maniscalco, son Jonathan Hart Junior, Grandson Elijah, mother Deanna, aunt Sharon Bobel, uncle Bob Bobel, aunt Janet Hart and uncle Richard Hart, cousins Rob Bobel, Chris Hart, Tammy Kirby. He was preceded in death by his grandparents Harry and Marie Hart and his stepson Dillon. Born August 2nd, 1963 in Cincinnati Ohio, Jon was raised by his loving mother and grandparents. Throughout his childhood and High School years, Jon displayed a mechanical aptitude and enjoyed many hours with his grandfather, uncles and friends learning to both drive and fix the various cars, bikes and trucks that found their way into his life. Jon enjoyed many childhood summertime visits to see his Aunt Sharon, Uncle Bob and cousin Rob in Toledo, Ohio. These trips often included camping and occasional car trips to places like Colonial Williamsburg and one time to the Florida Keys. It was during these Toledo visits that Jon developed a strong interest in electronics from his Uncle Bob and it was that interest that would provide his first vocation. After High School graduation Jon moved to Toledo where he began repairing video games and later managing video arcades into the late 1980s. Also during his time in Toledo he met his first wife Anne, and both being tired of the Midwest winters, they threw a dart at a map of Florida and headed south. Both the dart and the couple landed in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area where they lived and had a beautiful baby boy, Jonathan Junior. Jon, although a very private person, spoke frequently about his love and pride for Jonathan and how fortunate he was to be given a Grandson Elijah in 2020. Jon loved Florida. And it was in Florida that Jon spent almost two decades working, living, and enjoying everything that Florida offered. Jon started and ran his own vending business and when needed he used his natural talents to change vocations. It was also in Florida that Jon met his second wife Michelle who would be his companion for the remainder of his life. Jon was also fortunate to act as stepfather to Michelle's two children Britney and Dillon whom he also loved deeply. Throughout his life, Jon was never afraid to choose his own path. And no matter what life threw at him he always found his own unique way to get through it. Always polite and he was always willing to lend a helpful hand without question. When not at work he could most often be found helping family members or others with home projects or just spending time with his wife Michelle. While Jons family and friends are deeply saddened by his sudden loss, we all celebrate his life and the ways he touched each of us. Jon, you are loved and you are missed. Visitation will be Sunday from 2pm to 4pm at Moreland Funeral Home in Westerville, Ohio with the funeral service to follow at 4pm. Internment will be Tuesday at Hart Cemetery in Corbin, Ky
