Preceded in death by his father, & one brother Nolan Jr., Gart is survived by his wife Kathy, daughters Erica (Andrew) Gluszynski and Jennifer Douglas, son Nolan Douglas III, granddaughter Jaida Richardson, mother Patricia Douglas, and sister Rosemary Douglas. Gart was a loving father, devoted husband, doting grandfather, and a true friend to everyone.
Gart loved sports, especially OU football, from where he received a Bachelor’s degree in 1982. He worked as a civil engineer for 25 years for the City of Oklahoma City until his retirement in 2008. He spent his free time watching various sports games live and on TV; and he watched his children play softball and basketball almost every weekend. He loved going on roadtrips, golfing when he could, and just spending time outside in the country. During his retirement, Gart was happiest spending time with his family; especially his granddaughter who was his heart and joy. He was always reliable to help relatives and friends, no matter the task. He will be missed each day by all that knew and loved him.
The family wishes to extend their sincerest gratitude to Dr. Bashar Alasad. Also, thank you to Integris Hospice for their loving care and support during his final days.
