Albert A. Hartka

On Monday morning, Albert A. Hartka, loving husband and father, passed away peacefully. He was 75.

Albert was born in Philadelphia to a great family full of siblings. He joined the United States Marines in 1964 and served his country proudly.

He moved to Fulton to work for Nestle’s where he was employed for 37 years. Albert met and married his beloved wife Eleanor and raised six stepchildren who he considered his own.

Albert was pre-deceased by his daughter Sheri, and son Shane. He is survived by his wife Eleanor, daughters Dorothy, Robin and Melissa, and son Robert.
