Welcome to the CaringBridge website for Chester Hart and family, created and run by Pastor Ben Hogue and Pastor Mike Wilker of Lutheran Church of the Reformation. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement.  If you would like to support the Hart Family or have any questions, feel free to email Pastor Ben ( and Pastor Mike ( When contacting the pastors, please email your message to both pastors to ensure a response, as one might be away on vacation.

In June, Kim Hart contracted COVID-19 and a few weeks later, Chester did as well. Kim has since recovered and is back at work. In early July, Chester was taken to the hospital and after some tests, a blockage in his heart was found. On Monday, July 6, he had triple bypass surgery, which was successful. We will continue to post updates as they come in.  Throughout the recovery of the family, Reformation pastors, members, and friends of the family have been able to provide assistance and support as needed. Thank you for visiting. Your care and prayers are appreciated.
