Jonathan Hartwig, 47, of Castle Creek, a Loving and Gentle husband and Father, passed away December 18, 2023 at Wilson Hospital after a courageous battle with health issues. Jon is predeceased by two infant sisters. He is survived by his wife Susan (Kingston) Hartwig and four precious children, Caleb, Jared, Kaelyn and Austen. He is also survived by his parents, Alfred “Al” and Grace Hartwig. As well as seven siblings, Grace Ann (Matthew) Peachman, Rachel Lee (Phillippe) Bergeron, Sarah Lynne, James (Naomi), Benjamin (Stacy), Daniel (Tiffany), Mark (Kristi). 34 Aunts and Uncles, numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Jonathan began his journey of life in Indian Lake, NY. As a child, he came to understand the Gospel and believed Jesus as his Savior under the teaching of his father and the ministry of Evangelist Peter Accardi, later becoming a member, upon believer’s baptism of the Independent Baptist Church of Indian Lake. Jonathan always desired to faithfully serve the Lord in various capacities in his local church. He attended the Indian Lake Central School, graduating valedictorian. His college training took him to Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC for his pre-med degree. A further RN degree was gained from Binghamton University. His career began in nursing home care, then Home Health Care case managing with United Health Services. Ever learning and caring for people, he chose to become a Triage Nurse for a UHS Cardiac Care group of doctors. His later years have been spent in the United Health Services Wilson Hospital. His most recent position was Night Supervisor for the whole hospital. His consistent testimony and penchant for teaching, communicating and leading others was his investment in their lives, along with his skills with patients, will be missed by many. Jonathan finished his journey with deteriorating health quickly in his earthly body, to heaven, where God had been preparing his new home. “Dad, we are builders,” he reminded his father a week before his “door” opened in that new place. Ours is faith and hope in God. He leaves his family in a home which began as a “fixer-upper” but was transformed into a lovely place where his wife, Susan and children may dwell for many years.
