Lynn S. DeHart
September 1, 1938 – October 6, 2020
Lynn entered the world on September 1, 1938 in Columbus, KS. He joined 2 brothers, David and Bruce and a sister, Mary Ellen. Phyllis joined the fun 2 years later. Their parents were Albert T. DeHart and Sybil K. Miller DeHart. Lynn graduated from Richmond High School and attended the University of Central Missouri for a couple of semesters until beginning work at an auto parts store on the square in Richmond. He was also a member of the National Guard. Lynn’s career always involved the aftermarket auto part industry.
Lynn met the beautiful Peggy Sue Briant on a blind date in February 1961, fell in love and married on November 28, 1961. After having Kimberly Sue in October 1962, they moved to Gladstone and along came Lynnette Renee in December 1965. Lynn was all about loving life and his family. Lots of family get togethers, camping trips and sitting by the pool in the backyard drinking a nice cold beer.
Lynn leaves the love of his life, Peggy, his 2 daughters, Kim (and Marty) Renzelman, Lynnette (and Alex) Ashcroft, 5 grandchildren (Mallory, Bubba (Sabrina), Caroline, Jessica and Larson) and very special great grandson, Henry. We will all miss him terribly.
Since there will not be a service, please raise your glass high and say a toast to the kindest, gentlest man. Tell a story about Lynn, be kind to one another and smile. The world needs more Lynn DeHart’s.

Peggy, Kim and Lynnette, Lynn was the most wonderful man I was ever able to work for. He set standards very high and was so kind and caring. I always loved his collection of old auto parts and the way he talked and explained about them. please accept my sincere condolences and prayers. Nancy
Lynn always took time to speak and joke with me as I picked up parts at Equipment. He was always pleasant and smiling. You are in my prayers as you go through the days ahead. May God's peace carry you through.
