Lawrence “Larry” Dean Hart, Jr., age 28, of the Bear Clan and of Cass Lake, Minnesota began his journey to the spirit world on Thursday, May 30th, 2019 from Minneapolis, MN. Larry was born in Bemidji, MN on March 25th, 1991 to Nancy (Smith) and Lawrence Hart, Sr.
Larry grew up and attended school in Cass Lake, MN. He was crowned Leech Lake Royalty in 2002-2003 and 2003-2004 and in 2004, Larry helped take the Cass Lake/Bena High School Basketball Team to the State Tournament. Life had other ideas for Larry than school and ultimately, he obtained his GED. Larry was always joking around and having a good time. He loved to make people laugh. Larry was a proud, humble and loving man who enjoyed attending powwows, ricing, leeching, singing, gambling and spending time with his nieces and nephews. However, nothing brought him more joy than his children and spending every day with his other half Amanda.
He is welcomed to the spirit world by his two infant children; Babies Hart, grandma; Alice Smith, paternal grandparents; Dorothy Hart and Melvin Rogers, uncles; Patrick Smith, Freddie and Roddy Stone, nieces; Roselynne Rayne Stewart and Ca’Liina Alexandra Hart, “Bros”; Lorin “Lo” Losh and Cory “Tha Kidd” Jones and many more family members.
