Randy Hartranft Obituary

On Monday afternoon, September 18, 2023, Jesus Christ introduced Randy D. Hartranft, 60, of Bloomsburg, to God while he was surrounded by his loving family at Temple University Hospital - Jeanes Campus in Philadelphia. 

 Born in Berwick, January 4, 1963, he was the son of the late William H. and C. Marlene (Baker) Hartranft, Sr.  Randy graduated from West Hazleton High School and Vo Tech in 1980. Randy began his work history with PPL in 1981.  He worked initially as a maintenance worker and then a technical trainer.  He retired in 2021 as a field supervisor.

Randy lived his life by actions, how to treat people, how to act, and how a man should be.  Randy was selfless when it came to his family and loved ones.  Randy was truly a Jack of all trades.  He had a passion for hunting, Harley Davidson, and heavy equipment.  His last hunting trip was to Ohio with his son Bob, which happened to be his first harvest with a bow.

Randy was a member of the Sons of the American Legion, Bloomsburg, Orangeville Sportsman Club, Black Creek Sportsman Club, and a life member of the NRA.
He was a friendly and loving man with a great sense of humor that would do anything for anyone.  His granddaughter Violet had him wrapped around her finger.  Of all the names he had, Pappy was the one that melted his heart.

Randy's memory will forever be cherished by his loving wife, his family, loved ones and friends.  There is not a person he met that he did not leave a positive impact on.

 He was preceded in death, in addition to his parents, by his brother, William H. Hartranft, Jr. and brother-in-law, Corey Webster. 

 Surviving are the Love of His Life, his wife Debby, to whom he celebrated his 17th wedding anniversary on September 9; a son, Robert Nargoski, New Albany, OH; two daughters, Kari Nargoski-Galasso and husband James, Shavertown; and Kacey Nargoski, Danville; granddaughter, Violet Hess-Nargoski, the apple of his eye; four step-grandchildren, James, Megan, Kathryn, and Matt Galasso; two sisters, Patty Brosious and her husband John, Mifflinville; and Lori Webster, Rock Glen; nephews, Jesse, Chad, and Brett Webster and Jason Gebauer and several great-nieces and nephews.

Honoring Randy's wishes, there will be no services.  His immediate family will gather for a private memorial.  Harman Funeral Homes & Crematory, Inc.
