Harold E. Hartman, 74, Glenn L. Martin employee

June 09, 1996

Harold E. Hartman, a former Harford County resident who worked 43 years with the former Glenn L. Martin Co., died of liver failure Thursday at Grace Community Health Care Center in Myerstown, Pa. He was 74.

Born and raised in Pennsylvania, he was a 1941 graduate of Wyomissing Polytechnic Institute. He moved to Joppa at 21, when he began working for the Middle River aviation firm and married Rosemarie Bender.

He was certified as a Federal Aviation Administration airframe and power plant mechanic in 1968, and, in 1976, was appointed the FAA-designated manufacturing inspection representative for commercial aircraft programs in Baltimore.

Mr. Hartman retired in 1984 from what is now Lockheed Martin Corp., and opened a private consulting business, which he ran until 1986. He recently moved back to Pennsylvania.

He was a longtime member of the Harford County chapter of the Izaak Walton League, collected guns and ran a shooting range on his 11-acre property. He was a life member of the National Rifle Association and the Millcreek (Pa.) Rod and Gun Club.

A memorial service is planned for 10 a.m. Tuesday at Elias United Church of Christ in his native Newmanstown, Pa.

His wife died in 1990. He is survived a niece, Sally Ann Zug of Richland, Pa.; and two grandnephews.
