Former Hart’s Cards and Gifts owner dies

This is somewhat old news but we missed it somehow till two people pointed it out last night, so we’re posting it in case you missed it too. Just a few months after selling his Admiral store, which is now the Atomic Boys retro-stuff store, Alan Hart — longtime owner of Hart’s Cards and Gifts — has died at age 67. The obituary published at a few days ago notes he “thoroughly enjoyed his 2 months of retirement.” Here’s the online guest book mentioned in the obituary.

    I didn’t know him but it makes me sad he only had 2 months of retirement. My best wishes to his family. Seems to happen to often.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to Carol and all of Alan’s family. We will miss his cute face walking around the Admiral area. He was a great guy and a West Seattle icon…we will always remember him. The lady’s at Linda’s flowers..

Sorry, comment time is over.
