Hartmut Gronau 04/10/1940-08/13/2018

Hartmut “Hart” Gronau was born in East Prussia, city of Memel. Soon after he was born, the family had to flee from the Russians . His father fell in WWII in 1944.  When he saw that everyone was crying, he said: “Don’t cry, I get on my horsey and bring Daddy back.”


Hart spent his adult life working in the Merchant Marine and also for Flying Tigers. In 1962, he moved to the United States.  He later moved to Seward, Alaska, his most favorite place in the world.

Cancer overpowered him at age 78.
