Sidney Carlton Hartman

June 6, 1969 — January 25, 2024

We are deeply heartbroken to announce the passing of Sidney Carlton Hartman on January 25, 2024, at the young age of 54 after a short but aggressive battle with cancer.  Born on June 6, 1969, he is survived by his parents, Carlton V and Janet L Hartman, three siblings, his wife, and three young children under the age of 8 in addition to four grown stepchildren.

Sid was born and raised in Montrose, Colorado where he spent his entire life save for a short stint at the University of Northern Colorado before returning home to help run the family business.  Though he never physically lived anywhere outside Colorado, his heart and imagination lived in the deepest reaches of outer space, the darkest forests and oldest mountains of Middle Earth, and the thousands of epic stories lived out by the greatest generation of the WWII era.  Throughout his life Sid could often be found up and down a river fishing, or up in the mountains jeeping, hiking, or camping, but whatever he was doing you could always be sure he was seeking to share it with his family and children.

As a son, brother, friend, husband, and especially as a father, Sid always brought the fun and the joy to every situation, every meal, and every mischievous misadventure.  For him every surface was a drum, and every moment was an opportunity to entertain.  He always said that his greatest joy in life was to entertain his wife, and even to the end he never quit.  The world will be a quieter and much more boring place without him.

There will be a Celebration of Life Memorial service for Sid at Calvary Chapel Montrose on Saturday, February 3rd at 10am, followed by a reception hosted by the church.  Flowers may be sent Calvary Chapel starting on Friday the 2nd, or any time after 8am on Saturday the 3rd.

Crippin Funeral Home of Montrose is assisting the family.
