September 22, 1958March 7, 2018

Stephen Hartman., of Bradenton passed away Wednesday March 7, 2018. He was born September 22, 1958, in St. Louis Missouri. Stephen was very active with the Boy Scouts when young, achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. He also volunteered for several years with the Sports Car Club of America, working Fire Rescue at various tracks in the midwest and south. He and his wife also became divers. After snorkling on their honeymoon and seeing divers below them he declared "I want to be down there!" So he took diving classes and became a divemaster. He worked as a computer programmer for many years back in the day when computers took up a whole room. He and his wife moved to Florida after taking a temporary job there. He said "when I could walk the dog in shorts, teeshirt, and flip flops in January I decided that this was the place to be." He is survived by loving Wife Michelle, mother Evelyn Hartman, brother and sister-in-law Bruce and Pam Hartman, nephews Matthew and Brandon Hartman, and his 4-pawed son, Petey. He is preceded in death by his father Henry Hartman in 2014. Visitation will be held at Manasota Funeral Home 1221 53rd Ave E, Bradenton on Thursday March 8, 2018, from 5pm to 8pm, with a funeral service on Friday, March 9 at 11am at Manasota Funeral Home burial to follow.

My deepest sympathy to Stephen's family. Try to keep in mind the many fond
memories you have of him. Those memories will give you the strength to
cope with the loss of this dear man. Also, pray to God for comfort. Rely on
him for the help needed during this sad time. God will help because he
cares for everyone who loved Stephen.

Mikki, we were so sad to learn of Steve's passing. You two were the first neighbors we met when we moved in on 21st Ave. We loved seeing the walks daily and then the time trial like bike rides! Steve could get around that long block quick! The good ones always leave us too soon! Our deepest condolences, Dan and Lorrie

Micki, I am heartbroken for you and for what you and Steve endure. Steve and the other 'guys from St. Louis' were HUGE members of my EV team at Road Atlanta for the Run-offs every year. I looked forward to seeing my 'other family' visit each time but lost touch when the event moved. Such a smart, sweet guy!
With a heavy heart I pray you can feel the comfort of Gods' arms around you. My sincerest condolences to you and your families.
Hugs and Prayers,
(Ramona Brendle, Cumming GA)
