Mr James Russell Hart (Jim) of Eskdale Road Grantham has died at Home. He was 61.
He was born in Beith, Ayrshire, to the late Margaret and Jim Hart, and the family moved to Grantham when he was a baby.
He was a devoted husband to Lesley, unforgettable Dad to Sally, Clare, James and Andrew and adored Grandad to Jasmine, Owen, Ben, Liam and George.
Mr Hart ended his working life at Vacu-Lug.
He enjoyed many sports and he played darts and cribbage in local leagues, but most of all he loved football and he played for different local teams, accumulating many trophies.
He was, more than anything, a family man and he enjoyed spending time on holidays that were always memorable and more recently the train journeys that had become a major part of his life.
The funeral service was held at Grantham Crematorium Chapel, conducted by Sheila Finch.
