Mike Hart Obituary, Death – Michael “Mike” Hart, 54 years old and a resident of Park Ridge Michael “Mike” G. Hart was a devoted family man who cherished his roles as a husband, father, brother, and friend to all. On September 14, 2022, when he was 54 years old, he passed away unexpectedly. He was raised in Cicero, Illinois, along with his sisters Amy Hart and Diane Hart, who were both born to his parents, Paul and Diana Hart (Craig Barringer). Mike earned his diplomas from Fenwick High School and Eastern Illinois University, and it was there that he met the woman who would become his wife, Noreen (Sullivan). Matthew, Maura, Michael, and Mairead were their four children, all of whom were born to them as a couple.
Mike began his career in the trading sector working as a runner at the Chicago Board Options Exchange. He eventually worked his way up through the ranks to become a Senior Market Analyst in the industry. He was a passionate Deadhead and a loyal White Sox fan. He laughed his way through life and made sure that his family and friends did the same. Mike had a way of inflicting his love and joy on everyone he came in contact with, whether it was on vacations to Michigan and Florida for the holidays, during the famed yearly Halloween parties, or at the fireworks celebrations on the fourth of July.
Mike Hart left a lasting impression on everyone he encountered by teaching them a new saying, giving them a hilarious tale, or both. His nieces and nephews, as well as his cousins and acquaintances, will miss him greatly. Mike was also the son-in-law of Michael and Nora Mai Sullivan, both of whom passed away, as well as the brother-in-law of Joan and Thomas McNamara, Karen Sullivan and Steve DePaepe, Cathy and Mike Mullane, Maureen and Pat Sullivan, the late Michael, and the late Shawn Sullivan.
