He was a wonderful man, and a wonderful uncle that will never be forgotten. I have so many great childhood memories of my Uncle Quinton. From shooting fireworks and guns each New Years Day and Fourth of July, to him umpiring softball games for my late wife's Cancer benefit Softball Tournament. He will be forever missed. He along with his brother (Marcus Monroe Hartley) helped their mother to raise their much younger sister Patsy,(my mother), after their older brother (Wesley Felton Hartley) enlisted in the US Navy at the end of World War II. She (my mother) and the rest of our family will be forever grateful to Uncle Quinton. ❤❤

Mr Hartley is my father in law I always enjoyed his stories about how he grew up working in fields and how he would let the milk curd so he could eat it and his days umpiring and what all he did at the base sometimes he would tell me the same stories over and over but I didn’t mind. Sadly in his later years with having Alzheimer’s he had pretty much forgotten who I was I look back and have the memories of the stories he would tell. He will be deeply missed. Bobby Dixon

I was fortunate to have visited Uncle Quentin and his family when I was 12. He was so nice and made me welcome as did Aunt Christne and Karen and Connie and Teresa. I was glad that he was a veteran like my dad,his brother. I will always remember him fondly. My condolences snd prayers to his family .
