LaVern Hartman - April 19, 2011


LaVern Harry Hartman, 89, a long-time resident and businessman of Hastings, died Monday, April 19, 2011, at 12:17 a.m.
LaVern was born Oct. 23, 1921, to Fredrick and Louise Hartman on a farm three miles south of Rosemont.
He was baptized and confirmed in the local Lutheran Church.
He attended a one-room one-teacher country school as a child and graduated from Blue Hill High School in 1939. During his four years of high school he was a varsity athlete in football, basketball and track. He was an exceptional baseball player where perhaps he may have missed his athletic calling.
