Harold H. Hartman

April 5, 2019 West Chester, PA Loving Husband, Father, Brother, Brother-in-law and Grandfather

Harold Hopkins Hartman, age 89 of West Chester, PA, died peacefully at home surrounded by the people who loved him most, on April 5, 2019.

He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Helen Hartman; his son, David Hartman; his daughter, Joyce Fiorentino and her husband Peter Fiorentino, his grandchildren, AKA “The Herd”; James, Michael and Peter Fiorentino, his sisters Marjorie Lafferty and Janet Seekins and her husband Dennis Seekins, his sister-in-law Dorothy Hartman and many nieces and nephews.

He was a beloved Husband, Father and Grandfather. Harold was interested in many things, history, politics, baseball, travel, gardening, fishing and he had a great sense of humor. But we will remember him most as a man who loved and took care of his family.

We would like to especially thank his caregivers; Shannon, Linda, Deb, Felicia, Nina, Maryann, Eileen, Phyllis and the wonderful people from Willow Tree Hospice. Without all of your help, keeping our father in his own home would not have been possible. We love you all.

You are invited to visit with Harold’s family from 9:30 to 10:30AM on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at Kuzo Funeral Home, 250 W. State St., Kennett Square, PA 19348. Services will begin at 10:30AM and interment will follow at Union Hill Cemetery.

    Our prayers are with you and the family at such a difficult time. It was a pleasure knowing and speaking with Harold when he visited, he was a wonderful man. May you find peace in your heart knowing he is in a much better place now looking down on his family and at peace, and what wonderful daughter you have been for him and continue to be with your Mom. Love you.
