Robert McCardell Carhart, 70, died in Hot Springs, Arkansas on May 22, 2020.

Bob was born on August 9, 1949 in Dallas Texas to Frances Tull Carhart and Isaac Whitfield Carhart. He graduated from Brazosport High School, Freeport, Texas. He had a golf scholarship to Houston Baptist College and later attended Texas State University in San Marcus, Texas. His long career with Consolidated Electrical Distributors moved him from Houston, Texas to Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Bob always enjoyed interacting with people. Golf was always a very important part of Bob's life both as a sport, as well as, social camaraderie with his golfing friends. He is survived by a brother and sister-in-law, Whitfield and Mary Carhart of Vashon, WA., a niece and nephews: Tom, Mark, and Frances Carhart, and ten grand-nieces and grand-nephews. He especially enjoyed sharing the same birth date with his grand-nephew, Timothy Finan.

If you were lucky enough to meet Bob, you had a friend for life. He was the kindest, most sincere man I've ever met. I first met Bob 13 years ago when I went to work at CED. I was proud to call him a co-worker until he retired, but he was so much more than that. He became family, and I think that everyone else that worked with him or knew him well would say the same. I always knew that I could talk to Bob about anything, and he was more than willing to help me through some difficult times at work and in life. He made a huge impact on me, and I'll greatly miss our visits and talks. Thanks for everything, Bob. I love you, man!

Bob was a true friend. He actually cared when he would ask about my son who was very ill a few years ago and hugged me when I cried. I will miss his smile and his caring nature.

My deepest sympathies to his family.
