Lorenzo Dow Hartley Jr.

Corsicana —

Dow (Boy) Hartley Jr. passed away Tuesday, July 30, 2013 after an extended illness and fighting the “Big Fight” at the age of 78. He was born Aug. 21, 1934.

He was preceded in death by his loving wife Judy, parents Dow and Ouida Hartley, brother Robert and sister Billie and Helen Faye.

He is survived by brothers Tim Hartley and wife Wanda, James Hartley and wife Paula; sons D.J. Hartley and wife Kathy, Chris Hartley, and Rusty Hartley and wife Unetta, and daughter Gwen Federspiel and husband Joe. He cherished his grandsons Travis and Joey Federspiel, Jesse Hartley and granddaughter Kristi Hartley and great-grandsons Riley James “RJ” and Coby Dow “CD” Federspiel.

Dad was stern but fair, tough but not mean, honest and trustworthy, and a man of his word. He bestowed these traits upon his children and we hope to be able to do the same for ours.

We should have fished more.

Visitation will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, 2013 with service to follow at 11 a.m. in the Chapel at Broadway Colonial Funeral Home, 120 E. Broadway St., Newton, Kansas 67114.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Dow and Judy’s favorite charity, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at stjude.org.
