Werner Karl Hartlieb 75, of East Hartford, CT, passed away on Wednesday, November 4, 2020, with the support and love of Marsha (Stupcenski) Hartlieb, wife of 29 years, by his side. Although he spent the remaining few years of his life living in New England, Werner was a long-term resident of Melbourne, FL after moving from New York. Werner was born in Brooklyn, NY on May 9, 1945, to his late parent’s William and Maria (Albus) Hartlieb. He grew up with his family in Queens, NY where he graduated from Richmond Hill High School, Queens NY in 1963. He attended the University of The State of New York earning an Associate’s Degree in Aeronautics graduating in 1966. With Werner’s passion for aviation, he decided to further his knowledge by attending Embry-Riddle Aeronautical Institute in Daytona Beach, FL completing the course in December of 1966 which enabled him to achieve getting his pilot’s license. After obtaining his license he was able to get a job with F.I.T Aviation. With his academic and professional experience, Werner earned the privilege of being a Pilot Instructor certified with the FAA Pilot Examiner’s Designation in March of 1975. Werner retired from Piper Aircraft in 2005 after 30 years in various senior management roles. Werner also served his country in the Army National Guard.

Werner was a talented woodworker building furniture for his home and family while classical music played in the background. No Sunday was complete without a ride on his Harley, a glass of Gentleman Jack and Frank Sinatra’s “My Way”. Being from New York, Werner cheered for the Yankees. Alongside his wife Marsha, Werner also leaves behind his son-in-law George Beaton of Ocoee, FL, as well as his three grandchildren: Alexis Beaton and husband George Chapman III of England, Kelvin Hartlieb and Briana Beaton, both of Ocoee, FL.

Werner and I knew each other as teenagers in Queens NY. He was the sweetest, kindest, most caring person I knew at that time in my life. He made a lasting, wonderful impression on my life, and I will never forget him.

Werner and I worked together for something over 25 years and were friends for near 50 years. He was a good man and someone I could count on for guidance and spirited conversation. Enthusiasm for airplanes and motorcycles were an addiction we shared. I will miss his bright smile and that unique laugh. R.I.P. old friend. You will be missed by many!
