LEESVILLE - Edward William Hartung Jr., 62, of Leesville, died on Wednesday, May 9, 2012 in a horrific traffic accident on HWY 378 just a few miles from his home. Ed retired on March 1st and was enjoying life, his family and his mission to serve our Lord and Savior. He was a quiet witness and had a heart for helping others.
Survivors are his wife, Charlotte Ann (Glenn); his mother, Marynetta Dike Hartung; son, Jeffrey Edward Hartung and his wife, Cynthia; daughter, Karin Marie Bello and her husband, Brian; beloved grandchildren, Holly, Jeffrey, Hunter and Susan Hartung; Benjamin and Samuel Bello; sister, Mary Elizabeth Larsen and brother-in-law, Bruce Larsen; niece, Paula Schwinn and nephew, Chris Larsen. Ed was preceded in death by daughter, Jennifer Ann Hartung and father, Edward William Hartung Sr.
Ed was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend to many. He will be greatly missed. He was a man of faith and loved his Lord and he was so very proud of his family. He grew up in St. Paul, MN and was a Harding High graduate. He was always a 'working man' – he retired from Whirlpool Corporation after 30 years and then went on to work for IC Bus (Navistar International) for 12 more years. So many plans – so much joy in his life. Through many years of working he lived in several places and created wonderful memories and a host of friends and church families throughout the country. All will miss him. Ed had a heart for Jesus and became involved with the Kirk Karpenters in Tulsa, OK – he brought this passion with him when moving to Lexington, SC and he was leading a wheel chair ministry at Mt. Horeb UMC with a partnership with EmmanuWheel. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials to this ministry: EmmanuWheel, 566 Rawl Rd., Lexington, SC 29072
A memorial service to celebrate Ed will be held on Monday, May 14, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at Mt. Horeb UMC, Lexington, SC with a reception and lunch following. Praises to the Lord for this precious life. Caughman-Harman Funeral Home, Lexington Chapel is assisting the family with arrangements.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28
