In Grateful Memory Of Donald D. DeHart

Don DeHart

Donald D. DeHart

Born February 3, 1935 Indianapolis, IN

Died April 15, 2006 Palm Harbor, FL

On April 15, 2006 Don DeHart, the founder of For Haiti With Love, lost his long battle with cancer and went to be with our Lord and Savior. A memorial service was held on Monday April 24th 2006 at 2pm at First Presbyterian Church of Dunedin, 455 Scotland St. Dunedin FL. For the 32 years we have been married, I can say he has always been one to do things as soon as he had the idea. Never was he able to leave a job long enough for volunteers to come to help him… do it now, get it done… As we look at the wonderful way he had things set up in Haiti so that they could run smoothly during his cancer battle…I finally understood that he was simply driven to help—and help now. Learned to accept it, watch God provide the funding and see his dreams complete one by one. The purchase of the headquarters, the security wall, the annex on the land down from the headquarters — homes for the homeless, feeding the hungry, and mending the hurt, burnt and wounded. He had a passion for helping and zero tolerance for procrastination. Join us in prayer that God's work through Don, helping the poor of Haiti, will continue. He touched the lives of thousands of people both in Haiti and in the U.S. and their world and ours is a better place because Don did the work that God called him to do.
