Raymond J. Harting, 75, died September 5, 2018 at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Lakewood, CO.
Ray was born in Dayton, OH to Reinhart and Magdalene (Schopler) Harting. He married the love of his life, Janet Lehmkuhl, on October 26, 1968.
Ray’s lifelong passion for aviation started with his service in the Air Force (1964-1967), transitioned to corporate airplanes, and culminated in his own consulting business. This path led them from Ohio, to Wisconsin, Minnesota, Connecticut, Illinois, and finally Colorado.
Ray is survived by his three children Karen Harting, John (Eliza) Harting, Emily (Len) Harkins, four grandchildren Zoe and Lily Harting and Leo and Isaac Harkins, and six siblings Jerry (Barb) Harting, Bob (Ann) Harting, Dick Harting, Jim ( Betty) Harting, Patty (Henry) Powers, and Bill (Doris) Harting.
Ray loved sharing adventures and experiencing the world with his family. He passed on his knowledge and support freely, loving nothing more than helping when he was needed.
