OWENSBORO, Ky. — Tommy Dewayne DeHart, 46, of Owensboro, passed away Monday, Nov. 16, 2020, at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. Tommy was born in Daviess County on Nov. 19, 1973, to Jerry Wayne DeHart and Darla Torrence Smith.
In the words of his wife, Tommy was amazing! He was a hard-working man, skilled in operating his own flooring business. Tommy had a heart of gold. While sacrificing for his family, he also had time to serve others when needed. He was a quiet but strong man, very funny in private.
Tommy was a strong family man who would drop everything to enjoy watching or doing things with his children. From watching his son play football, fishing, music, or cooking, Tommy was their biggest cheerleader. By God’s grace, Tommy had overcome much adversity in his life and was a follower of Jesus Christ and a member of Pleasant Valley Community Church.
Tommy was preceded in death by his paternal grandmother, Frances Clark DeHart Hall.
Those left to cherish his memory include his wife of 15 years, Charity Mabrey DeHart; four children, Georgia, Genesis, Gabrielle, and Grant, all of Owensboro; father, Jerry DeHart (Sandy), of Calhoun, Kentucky; mother, Darla Smith, of Ohio County, Kentucky; sisters, Lisa Taylor, Amy Doss, and Nioka O’Bryan (Jarrid); brother, Michael DeHart (Heather); maternal grandmother, Lynn Geary Roy (Jim); many nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Life service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 21, at Pleasant Valley Community Church. There will be a meal following the service for all who attend.
