He was predeceased by his wife of 62 years, Jean, who passed away July 27, 2007.
For over 50 years, Vart worked at CASH CLEANERS at 231 Main Street. The establishment was initially opened as a hat cleaning establishment by his father, Antranik. Vart eventially took over the business with a partner, Henry Usherwood, after Antranik passed. After many years, Vart bought out Usherwood and operated CASH CLEANERS on his own. After 52 years, having seen the "industry" change from blocking and cleaning hats and cleaning ladies gloves, through the dry cleaning era and finally doing primarily alterations, Vart closed CASH CLEANERS.
Vart and Jean traveled with their RV friends from SIRS and enjoyed the opportunity to see the country. He was an inspiration to many and was a community leader.
