He is survived by two sons; Perry (wife, Lisa) Hartzell and Sidney (wife, Twila) Hartzell, both of Carlisle, one sister, Eleanor Thrush of Carlisle, two grandchildren; Chasity and William Hartzell and many nieces and nephews.  He was predeceased by one sister, Margaret Cosgrove and one brother, Paul Hartzell.
