William James Patrick “Pat” Hartman, 54, of Romney, WV died suddenly on Friday, June 8, 2018 at Hampshire Memorial Hospital in Romney.
Pat was predeceased by his parents; Charles William Hartman and Rose Marie Soloman.
Pat is survived by his loving wife of 15 years, Alana C. (Sucke) Hartman and (2) daughters; Kaitlyn Rebecca and Jocelyn Marie Hartman. He is also survived by many other family members and friends.
Pat was born and raised in Western Maryland. He graduated from Beall High School with the class of 1982 and served several years in the U.S. Marine Corps. Pat worked as a cook and baker in various kitchens, including Chesapeake Dining Hall at Frostburg State University and Doubling Gap Center in Newville, PA. In more recent years Pat found an outlet for his many talents at the West Virginia Retreat Center, also known as Global Capitol of World Peace, in Hampshire Co., including managing the kitchen, maintaining the utility plants, and delighting residents with his baked goods.
In the middle of all of this, Pat met Alana in Frostburg and they married two years later in 2002. Then two precious daughters arrived and filled Pat’s life with love. Known as a quiet person, he nevertheless often shared with people the pride he felt about Kaitlyn and Jocelyn. Pat loved camping and taking road trips with his family, volunteering at “Sleepy Creek Presents” music festivals, playing with his dogs, and creating crazy memories with his friends. He found ways to help people who needed help. Pat will be missed.
Friends will be received at the Romney Presbyterian Church on Saturday, June 16, 2018 from 10 AM to 12 Noon where funeral services will begin at noon. Interment will be at a later date.
