George F. Hartig

October 29, 1926 — December 10, 2023

Severn

George F. Hartig, 97, a beloved member of the community, veteran and a devoted family man, has peacefully passed away on December 10, 2023, in Severn, MD. He was born on October 29, 1926, in Pittsburgh, PA to late Walter and Myrtle Hartig. George leaves behind a legacy of hard work, dedication, and love that will forever be cherished by his family and friends.

During World War II, George proudly served in the US Army, demonstrating his unwavering patriotism and selflessness. He dedicated his career to Westinghouse as a Senior Engineer for an incredible four decades before retiring. Outside of his professional life, George was an individual of diverse interests and hobbies. Passionate about music, he honed his talent as a Tenor Saxophonist and became an integral part of various bands throughout his life. His soulful melodies touched the hearts of many who had the privilege to listen to him play. George's fascination with philately led him to become an avid collector of stamps and coins. In addition to pursuing his own interests, George dedicated a significant portion of his time volunteering with the Maryland State Police for an admirable span of 22 years. Through this service, he made valuable contributions to ensuring public safety and supporting law enforcement efforts. Furthermore, George held a deep commitment to fostering character development in young individuals through his involvement with the Boy Scouts of America. 

He is survived by his beloved wife, Renee H. Bivans; his devoted children, George F. Hartig, Jr. (Kate), David J. Hartig, M.D. (Jeanne), Cathleen A. Stramella (Paul), William W. Hartig (Kathleen), Susan C. Meade (David), Carol J. Serieno (Doug), Sharon T. Murdoch (John), Diane M. Hegberg (Jeff), Barbara A. Doegen (Tim), Raymond A. Bivans, David G. Bivans (Laura), Leslie S.

He is also survived by 42 grandchildren, 39 great-grandchildren & one great great-granddaughter. George was preceded in death by his first wife, Irene T. Hartig (Gsell) and his daughter, Christine M.
