George Earl Hart, age 75 of New Point, Indiana passed away at his home on Sunday, September 20, 2020.  The son of Marshall and Edith (nee: Cook) Hart was born on August 20, 1945 in Salt Creek Township in Decatur County, Indiana.

After 29 years, George retired as a manager from Batesville Tool & Die in August 2012.

George loved the outdoors whether it was fishing, hunting or gardening. Wood working was another hobby of his. Of course setting up the big Christmas display at the house, each year was another favorite tradition he liked to do. Most of all he just enjoyed the time he spent with his family and friends.
