Peter Douglas Hartleben passed away suddenly on Friday September 18th of a massive heart attack. Pete was a beloved husband and father, and until an auto accident eight years ago which shattered his hip, he was a faithful volunteer at the Little Chapel Food Pantry in Divide. Pete was a quiet man who loved his family and was always there to help anyone in need. Friends and family alike greatly appreciated his willingness to work on their cars and trucks at no charge; he used his tremendous knowledge of mechanics to benefit anyone who asked for his help.
Pete recently retired from the Woodland Park School District where he had worked for many years as the head of the maintenance department. He was born in Appleton, Wisconsin, on August 29th, 1965, to Douglas J. and Faye (Reimers) Hartleben.
He is survived by his parents; his wife, Rachel; his sons: Jonathan and Erik; his daughter, Kathrine; his brother, Fred (Marla Goldman) Hartleben; his nephews: Joseph P. and Jacob L. of Spring Hill, Tennessee, and various aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins in Colorado and Wisconsin.
Pete attended Rosholt, Wisconsin schools and graduated from Woodland Park High School after the family moved to Colorado.
