Mississauga Warriors Football Club

MEMBER ONTARIO FOOTBALL ALLIANCE AND FOOTBALL CANADA


 

Jan Hart - Founding Member of the Warriors

Jan was one of the founding members of the Mississauga Warriors Football Club.  His commitment to the club was without equal.

On the morning of August 26, 2014, Jan William Hart of Nelson, BC, at the age of 67, passed away after a long, brave and tenacious fight with cancer. Jan was born at home in Den Haag, Netherlands on November 5, 1946 to Josepha (nee Pawlik) and Wilhelm t’Hart. While still an infant, his mother divorced his father, remarried and came to Canada, settling in the Hamilton/Niagara Ontario area. Unfortunately, his home life was not a safe environment for him and he was put into foster care at about the age of 8. Growing up, Jan was at one time or another, an altar boy, hockey player, football player, and an avid and active member of the Sea Cadets. When he was 18 years old, he joined the Canadian Navy in 1964 and became a Sonar Technician, was an MP for Shore Patrol and one of the ship’s two divers. He luckily served during peace time and was able to travel the world over a couple of times. He served on the Haida, the Cap de la Madeleine, the Skeena, and various submarines. Upon his honourable discharge in 1967, he returned to the Niagara region and was a part owner in a Hotel in Fort Erie. When that no longer satisfied him, he became a starving artist in Hamilton ON, co-managing an art studio with a very dear friend. After a few years, he gave up his bohemian ways and joined the private security industry specializing in hotel, domestic and undercover work. He eventually settled in Toronto, ON, where he met his future wife Margaret Welter in 1973. They were married in 1974 and moved to Mississauga, ON. They had a son, James Welter Hart, in 1977. Jan was very involved with his community. He served as the president of their condo complex board of directors for over 20 years. He coached his son’s T-Ball team, but went to the dark side and became an umpire, following his wife’s lead. When his sports interests turned to football, he became a defensive coach for the Mississauga Football League, loving every second of it. As a founding member of The Mississauga Warriors Football Program in Ontario he coached countless players, helping them to reach and exceed their goals both on and off the field. Also an active member of Baseball Ontario he spent many years in the roll of Umpire, finding his reward in the knowledge that the players were having fun. He was instrumental in forming the Ontario Varsity Football League and earned several championship rings as a coach of the Warriors. He ate, slept and drank football. He later became aFootball Official for the Lakeshore Football Officials Association to further his mission to ensure youth and young adults alike had a fun, fair experience with the sport, the whole time promoting the sport and encouraging others to become involved. About the only thing he loved as much as football (other than his family, of course) was his trains. He loved to sit by the tracks and photograph trains. He became quite proficient with his photography and has had several of his shots published. As well, he is credited with being one of the videographers in several CanRail and Green Frog Productions videos. Jan’s chosen career path of private security was interrupted for several years as he tried his hand at other jobs. He was in sales for a couple of years, but security was always his preferred focus. After a visit to Nelson BC in 2006, Jan was so enamoured with the place that he insisted his wife visit it as well. Soon, plans were being made to leave the big cities behind, and they relocated to Nelson in 2008 to semi-retire, where Jan continued with his private security work with Mountain Eagle Security until June of this year. Jan retained a positive attitude and his off the wall sense of humour was strongly evident right to the end. As a devoted and loving husband to Margaret, the love of his life, he not only provided companionship and love but also supported and encouraged her in all of life's challenges. As a father to James, he played the part of best friend, confidant, educator and coach, inspiring and facilitating dreams and desires thought impossible. As a man of many talents and skills he excelled in being a loving son, brother, husband, father, brother-in-law, uncle and grand uncle, coach, mentor, voice of reason, inspiration and above all, a selfless friend who always put others’ needs before his own. Jan is survived by his mother, Josepha (nee Pawlik) Radziejewski of St. Catherines, his wife Margaret (nee Welter) Hart, his son James Welter Hart both of Nelson BC, and many in-laws, nieces, nephews, and grand nieces and nephews. The words “thank you” feel so inadequate to express the love and gratitude Jan and his family have for all the people who cared of them over this past year and a half: all the KLH 3rd floor staff, Dr. Philip Malpass and staff, Dr. Chris Cochrane and staff, Dave Scanlan and staff, all the palliative care and hospice workers, and of course the many, many friends and family members.
