On Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019, after complications arising from a stroke, Robert Louis Cart, age 74, passed away in Sun City, Arizona.

Known to all as Bob, he was devoted husband and friend to everyone. Born to John and Lavonne Cart, Bob and his sister, Linda, grew up in the San Fernando Valley in California. A veteran of the Vietnam War, Bob and his wife, Cynthia Cart, and young family moved to Prescott, Arizona, in 1974, when he was offered a position as head groundskeeper at Sharlot Hall Museum.

In 1991, Bob remarried and he and his beloved wife, Lynn Garton Cart, moved to Georgia. They remained there until they retired in 2015 and returned to Arizona. Throughout his life Bob had many careers including master tree trimmer, business owner and building inspector. He was an avid stamp collector and loved old cars. During the last three years of his life, Bob could be seen about Sun City visiting yard sales, his ever-present Pink Panther hat perched on his head. Bob loved his family and was very proud of each and every one.

He is survived by two daughters, Michelle Horton and Julie (Brian) DeDe; four step-children, Kim (Wayne) Johnson, Phillip (Mary) Reeves, Kellie (Scott) Pettit, and Kris (Julie) Akin; 13 grand-children, three great-grand-children; and his sister, Linda Cart. Bob is preceded in death by his wife, Lynn Garton Cart, and his parents, John and Lavonne Cart.

A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 27, 2019, at Regency Mortuary, 9850 W. Thunderbird Road, Sun City. Bob was cared for in his last days by the wonderful team at Sun Garden Care Home and Hospice of the West. Donations can be made in his honor by visiting http://hospicewestaz.com/donate/.
