Charles M. Hart, a retired marine electrician, died Feb. 19 of cancer at his Brooklyn home. He was 92.

Born in Mabie, W.Va., he was a 1930 graduate of Beverly High School in Beverly, W.Va.

A sports fan, he attended the 1958 Baltimore Colts-New York Giants championship football game. He also hunted and fished in Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland.

His wife of 46 years, the former Helen Hodges, died in 1977.

A memorial service will be held at 7 p.m. today at Immanuel United Church of Christ, 1905 Edmondson Ave., Catonsville.

He is survived by a son, Joseph Hart of Catonsville; three daughters, Nancy O'Neill of Baltimore, Linda Filkins of Linthicum and Robin Quillen of Dagsboro, Del.; 11 grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren. A daughter, Suzanne Hart, died last year.
