Smith Hart, son of the legendary Stu Hart and brother of Bret “The Hitman” Hart, has been moved to hospice care. Hart, 68, had been battling prostate cancer and wrote the following on his Facebook page:
“I am now more comfortable after being moved into Hospice care. I would like to end any strife or suffering I have been involved with over my life. To anyone and everyone, cherish the moments you have in this world. Do not waste your time with hate or anger. To anyone I have offended, mistreated or been at odds with, please accept my humblest of apologies. While I may not have always been everyone’s cup of tea, I always did my best to be the person I was most inspired by, my father. I would also like to thank my dear friend Carl Leduc, for making the visit from Montreal to come see me. It meant the world and I really like the new phone.”
Hart is best known for his time in Stampede Wrestling but he did make some appearances for WWE. In 1994, he was at ringside during the steel cage match between Owen and Bret Hart at that year’s SummerSlam. He was one of the brothers that tried to get involved in the match on behalf of Bret. In 2010, he appeared at WrestleMania in the corner of Bret for his match against Vince McMahon.
On behalf of everyone here on WrestlingNews.co, we send along best wishes to the entire Hart family.
