Brian C. Hart was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the only son of Charles E. Hart and the late Dr. Barbara J. Hart. He was affectionately known to many as B. Hart, Uncle B or Barber B. He departed this suddenly at a young age.
Brian accepted Christ at a young age. He attended Bethany Baptist Church with his parents and made many friends and participated in various youth activities.
He was educated at Turner Elementary School, St. Bede Elementary School and Central Catholic High School. While attending St. Bede's, Brian was as a standout football player. His mother used to say "You gotta have Hart!" when the team would win big games. Brian went on to graduate from Woodland Hills High School and then he attended Slippery Rock University where he majored in Nursing. Later in life, he graduated from the Pittsburgh Beauty Academy.
Following in the footsteps of his grandfather Charles E. Hart, Sr., Brian became a barber. He and his close friend Sheila Brown were business partners and had many business ventures including opening The Barber's Inn locations. Being a people person, Brian genuinely enjoyed his customers of all ages. He was fun loving, compassionate and met no strangers.
Always a child at heart, Brian enjoyed many things, but his preferred interests were fashion, skateboarding, automobiles, motorcycles as well as music. It goes without saying he was an attentive son, a loving father and caring grandfather. While he had no nieces and nephews, he was such a loving and gentle soul that his younger cousins referred to him as Uncle B. Brian was truly "one of a kind" and will be missed by all his family and friends.
