Cary Dean Lockart, 65, of Shelbyville, IL, left this earth without warning or concern on Sunday, July 25, 2021, in the comfort of his home. Cary was born on May 29, 1956, in Shelbyville, the son of Leslie Vance and Ella Marie (Gelsinger) Lockart. Cary spent his childhood enjoying country living with his family. The Lockart family would spend every weekend at their farm in Vandalia tending to their flower and vegetable gardens before returning to Shelbyville on Sunday evening to prepare for the upcoming week. Cary had a love for little league and fishing in his early years. His first jobs were working for Bethel Mars at Dogs N Suds and Helen Gingrey at J&H Tropical Fish and Supplies, both in Shelbyville. It was his passion for aquariums and tropical fish that drew him to work at J&H Tropical Fish and Supplies.
