Richard Keith Lab­hart, bet­ter known to all his friends as “Sam”, peace­fully passed away in Port De­posit, MD, on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 17, 2016.

Sam is survived by his sons, Richard “Rick” Lab­hart and wife, Tif­fany, of Port De­posit; and Steven and wife, Amy Bel­mont, of Danville, AL; his for­mer wife, Bon­nie Bel­mont Lab­hart Anderson, of Port De­posit; broth­ers, Harry Lab­hart and wife, Juli­etta, of Gordo, AL, and Ron­ald Lab­hart and wife, Mari­bel, of Havre de Grace; sis­ters, Kathy Gray­beal of Havre de Grace and Mary Anne Barker of Bal­ti­more; step­mother, Bil­lie Lab­hart of Aberdeen; four grand­chil­dren; one great grand­child; and many cousins.

Sam was pre­de­ceased by his par­ents, Harry and Jean Whi­taker Lab­hart; sis­ter, Kelly Lab­hart Haines; and un­cle, Del­mar “Bud” Whi­taker.

Sam was born in Havre de Grace on July 25, 1953, where he lived and worked through­out his life as a car­pet and floor­ing in­staller. Sam was a happy-go-lucky guy who was al­ways “the life of the party” and who lived his life to the fullest. He was an avid out­doors­man who en­joyed hunt­ing deer and up­land game as well as Canada geese. He was an ex­cel­lent fish­er­man and spent much time boating, fish­ing and dip­ping white perch on the Susque­hanna River. Ear­lier in his life, he spent time scuba div­ing with dad. Sam was de­voted to his Bea­gle hunt­ing dogs and they were like­wise de­voted to him.
