Carlyle Hart

November 29, 1935 — January 9, 2024



Matthew 6:25-27

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”


Carlyle “Alloy” Hart (Chin Afat) was born on November 29, 1935 in Princes Town (Manahambre), Trinidad to the late Joseph “Melon” Hart (Chin Afat) and the late Elizabeth “Lily” Alexander.


Alloy was raised by the first love of his life, his grandmother, Catherine Hart. As a young boy, he attended Princes Town R.C. Primary School. In his free time, he would work with his two cousins, Carmen and Gilda, at the family’s business, Seaview Bar. As a young adult, he attended Presentation College. He moved to the United States (U.S.) on a Student Visa and attended Delahanty Auto Mechanical School, New York. Alloy loved cars and would often say, “I was driving motorcars before you could even spell motorcar.” He had many different cars that he enjoyed, but his favorite car was the Avanti. He even had it shipped to Trinidad on a plane from the U.S.


Alloy worked many years for the Trinidad and Tobago’s Embassy as a Protocol Officer to the Consulate General in both Trinidad and New York. Alloy settled once again at home in Trinidad where he started his own family. He then decided to move back to New York with his family and resided in Brooklyn, New York. He worked in the Security Department at the World Trade Center.


Alloy would eventually move back to Trinidad and care for his aunt and father until their death.


Alloy later returned to live in the United States, except this time to reside in Huntersville, North Carolina to be near his grandchildren.


Alloy’s character was like no other. He was a man of class, high standards, and extremely generous. He left a lasting impression on everyone that met him. He had a wealth of knowledge that he continued to share until the very end, especially about “motorcars”. We are thankful for God’s Hand on Alloy’s life. He will be dearly missed.


He is survived by two daughters: Amanda Hart of Brooklyn, NY, and Anna Hart-Frazier (Jamel) of Huntersville, NC; three granddaughters: Alyssa Hart-Frazier, Annalise Hart-Frazier, and Arielle Hart-Frazier; three sisters: Joan Remy of Trinidad, Barbara Hackett of Tobago, and Gemma Skerritt of Trinidad; a special cousin: Gilda Wong Won of Trinidad; and a plethora of cousins, nephews, nieces, and friends.
