Roland Edward Hartmann was born in Fosston, Minnesota, December 9, 1973, the youngest child of Fred and Marjorie (Malecek) Hartmann.  He was baptized, made his first Holy Communion and confirmed at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Beaulieu, Minnesota.  Rolly attended St. Michael’s Catholic School through the 6th grade and graduated from Mahnomen High School with the Class of 1993.  Following graduation, he attended Thief River Falls Vo-Tech for Auto Body.  Shortly thereafter, Rolly began his career as a welder.  He started at Erskine Manufacturing, then spent a short time in Willmar, and was currently employed by Case New Holland Industrial in Benson, where he has worked for the past 20+ years.

Rolly was a true outdoorsman.  He enjoyed biking, gardening, mowing his lawn and hunting.  He and his hunting canine companion, Jewels, were inseparable.  Together they took pleasure in hunting pheasants and ducks in many areas of South Dakota.  He also enjoyed spending time with family, especially his nieces and nephews and a special girlfriend.  He looked forward to the annual Moondance Country Jam to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones alike.  Although gone from this world too soon, Rolly will live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved him.

Roland is survived by his father, Fred (Verna) Hartmann of Thief River Falls; one brother, Fred (Stacy) Hartmann Jr. also of Thief River Falls; five sisters: Linda (Dale) Noll of Mahnomen, Donna (Derrick) Turner of Medford, OR, Sandy (Bruce) Manning of Pilot Mound, Manitoba, Canada, Theresa (Bryan) Sorenson of Fargo, ND, and Marcia (Peter) Liebl of Fertile; and several nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles.  

He was preceded in death by his mom, Marjorie; a nephew, Andrew; and a niece Madison.

Arrangements were entrusted to Anderson Family Funeral Home of Mahnomen, MN
