Obituary

John D. Hartzell, formerly of Germantown, WI, alumni of University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, and a 40-year veteran of the Associated Press in Milwaukee died Wednesday, September 4th after a 6-week battle with Leukemia in his adopted home of San Diego, CA. Referred to as the “voice of the AP” in Wisconsin, John was a career newsman who lived by his own high standards of ethical conduct and genuine love of storytelling. He had a calm and warm demeanor with a quick wit and was always ready with a good pun. He was a devoted family man who, along with his wife, uprooted his life after retirement to be close to his children and grandchildren who live in San Diego, CA. He is preceded in death by his parents Donald and Alice Hartzell and survived by his wife Carmella, daughters Jennifer and Rose and 5 grandchildren. Funeral services will be held at St. Therese Catholic Church in San Diego, CA on September 13th at 11am.

In lieu of flowers please consider donating to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, or the charity of your choice, in honor of John.
