Garold Hartsock Obituary

Garold Emil Hartsock

June 22, 1935 – October 29, 2023

Garold Emil Hartsock, “Jerry”, of Sandy Springs, Georgia, entered Heaven on Sunday, October 29, 2023, at the age of 88. Jerry battled dementia for several years, but in true “Jerry” fashion, he continuously entertained all who cared for him. Jerry lived his life with passion, curiosity, and unwavering energy. He had many stories to tell about his days making beer for Anheuser-Busch while attending Washington University in St. Louis. He served in the United States Army in 1956 and 1957, which sparked his lifelong love for world travel, leading to over 75 trips to Germany and a vacation home for 10 years in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. He started and successfully ran Omni Sales and Manufacturing until he retired at the age of 50. Soon thereafter, he joined Cherokee Country Club and spent the next few decades enjoying golf with friends. He loved his friends and family and delighted in a party or gathering of any kind, particularly while telling jokes and entertaining those around him. He spoke often of “life’s experiences” and was always anticipating the next one. He also had a true passion for working with his hands to build, create, and fix just about anything. In the later years of his life, Jerry found faith and community through North Springs United Methodist Church.

Jerry is preceded in death by his wife of 44 years, Anna; sons, Kurt and baby Jerry; and grandson, Clark. He is survived by his daughters, Michelle Hodgin, Lisa (Gus) Callaway, Christa (Matt) Davis, and Karen (Jim) Colvin; seven grandchildren: Laura, Sarah, Mayson, Christine, Matthew, Champ and Brooke; and two great-grandchildren, Lucy and Daisy.
