Born January 12, 1935, in Honolulu, Hawaii, he was a son of the late Roy Virgil DeHart and Leola Doris Woliver DeHart.

Tom is survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Shirley Ann Gee DeHart, whom he married August 27, 1959; two sons, Tony David DeHart and wife Vicky and Thomas Randall DeHart, and one daughter, Bonita Marlee DeHart Jessee, all of Morehead; three grandchildren, Jessica Dewitt, Jarvis DeHart, and Katie Perry; five great grandchildren; one great-great grandson and expecting an additional great-great grandson next month.
