Hart, 46, passed peacefully at his home in Weare, NH in the care of his wife and family on July 24, 2014. A joyfully outgoing man of many talents, Steve heroically battled cancer for over a year. His final weeks were spent reflecting the love of dozens of visitors, listening to his favorite music (occasionally playing air guitar), and frequently joking to put people at ease. He was known for his warm heart, frankness, appreciation for good food, playing and producing music, and deep love of his wife of six years, Andrea (Cusson).</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">Steve was born in Scarborough, ME, youngest son of Helen J. (Sebasteanski) and Emery W. Hart. The family moved from Gorham, ME to Nashua, NH, where Steve graduated from high school. He taught himself to play guitar, drums, and keyboards, and began performing and singing in rock groups. He and friends formed a band called Scuf, which recorded an album in 1993. He studied quality assurance at New Hampshire College in the mid-1990s, and later went on to work in New York City at a television production company. His enduring passion was playing music, and a highlight of his life was joining former Frank Zappa guitarist Mike Kennealy in a performance. Steve had an encyclopedic knowledge of musicians and could recall the names of countless performers, what bands they had played in, and quite often, when he had met them personally.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">Hart moved back to Nashua in 2004, and in 2006 he joined the team at GovConnection, a division of PCConnection. His distinguished career was complemented by the many friends he made in all levels of the company, and he became especially fond of his clients in the Midwest. He continued to perform in a band on weekends, and it was at a show that he met his future wife, Andrea. During their life together, they enjoyed visiting New York City, Ogunquit Beach, Magog, Quebec, going to concerts, and having friends over to play music. Steve loved cooking and family gatherings, and he spent his free time writing and recording original songs - including playing all the instruments and singing vocals. He taught Andrea how to play bass guitar, and was always excited to talk about his favorite movies, music, and “brushes with fame.”</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">Steve was a genuine, loving man who never walked into a room without shaking hands or hugging everyone. He found the good in every situation, and was an upbeat soul who made friends in all parts of the country; it was not unusual for him to bump into someone he knew while traveling in another state. During his last weeks, he was tirelessly cared for at home by his wife, parents-in-law, brother Dennis, and a devoted group of lifelong friends, including Stephan Fortuna, Brian Brodeur of New Jersey, Kris Kuchinski of Utah, Pat McHenry, T Powers, Kristin Paris, and Rich Fauteux - all dedicated to being there for their “brother.”</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">In addition to his wife and friends, Steve is survived by his two sons, Alexander and Quinton of Concord, MA; his brothers, Emery W. (Bill) Hart, Jr. and his wife Jacquie of North Grafton, MA, Elliot A. (Tony) Hart and wife Sue of Merrimack, NH, W. James Hart and wife Beth of Buford, GA, and Dennis M. Hart and wife Marge of Auburn, NH; his sister Sharron H. Greko and husband Steve of Scottsdale, Arizona; brother-in-law C.

Mike graduated from Tuscola HS in 1949 and served in the US Air Force from 1951 – 1955, with a tour of duty in Korea. Mike married Gertrude Anna Jordan on 6/12/1954 at Forty Martyr’s Catholic Church, Tuscola, IL and recently celebrated 60 years of marriage to the love of his life.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText"> Mike was proud to have ‘broken the mold’ by becoming a programmer for IBM in 1959, a job which took his family all over the United States. During his 34 year career working on computer hardware, systems, software, and project management, he was fortunate to work on interesting and impactful large-scale projects, including the SAGE national defense system, Gemini and Apollo LEM docking simulators, and Boeing 747 flight simulators. Most of Mike’s professional life was spent working with two firms – his initial work at IBM over a 12 year period, and Digital Equipment Corporation which he retired from in 1986 after 15 years of service. Following retirement from Digital he worked for 7 years as a Project Management Consultant which allowed him and Gert to travel to both Europe and Australia. He also became an expert pocket watch repairman during his retirement years. Above all, Mike was a hard working family man. He enjoyed spending time with his 4 children, their spouses, and 10 grandchildren. He loved classical music, reading, boxing, the Chicago Bears, hiking, antique pocket watches, the mountains and seashore, and working outdoors – although not necessarily in that order. His sense of humor and love of fun will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Mike and Gert attended St Christopher Catholic Church in Nashua.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">Mike is survived by his wife Gertrude of Nashua NH, four children and their spouses Paul and Karen Sanderson of Coventry CT, Tom and Annette Sanderson of Frisco TX, Karen and Bob Brouillette of Londonderry NH, and Joe and Laurie Sanderson of Falmouth ME.. He is also survived by 10 grandchildren, Brian Sanderson and his fiancée Christina Philopena of Manchester CT, Greg Sanderson of Brooklyn NY, Kevin Sanderson of Brighton MA, Dr. Carrie Sanderson and her fiancée Dr. Brandon Erickson of Chicago IL, Holly Sanderson Pyzik and her husband Joe of Atlanta GA, Mike Sanderson of Frisco TX, Katie Brouillette Schwartz and her husband Ricky of Merrimack NH, Marc Brouillette of Chicago IL, Eric and Sean Sanderson of Falmouth ME, as well as many nieces, nephews and friends around the country. He regrets not being able to meet his first great grandchild, Erik Myron Schwartz due in November; also his four sisters-in-law, Helen Sanderson of Tuscola, IL, Pauline Jordan of Wayne, PA, Mary Kleiss & her husband Floyd of Tuscola, IL and Agnes Jordan of Tuscola, IL. In addition to his parents, Mike was predeceased by his siblings Pauline, Dale, Shirley, and Charles. </p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">There will be no services in New Hampshire.
