Birth: Jul. 2, 1921
Death: Dec. 10, 1944

Gouverneur Tribune Press - May 30, 1945
Pfc Leon S. Hartwick, 23, son of Mrs. Lacy M. Hartwick, Helena St, this village, was killed in action December 10 (1944) in Germany. Dec 26, 1944 the war department informed Mrs. Hartwick that her son was missing in action as of December 10, and it was later ascertained that he gave his life for his country on that day.

Pfc Hartwick, native of Gouverneur, was born July 2, 1921, attended local schools and before entering the service in April 1940, was for six months with the CCC camp near here. For some 3 1/2 years he resided with his uncle Ernest House, member of James Maloy post, the American Legion, at 32 Bellevue St. He had at times written Mr. House and in a letter received a day or so before the report of Pfc Hartwick's being missing was received, Mr. House had had a letter from his nephew in which it was said Mr. House's Christmas gift had been received.

Mrs. Hartwick had a letter from her son the day the first telegram arrived. Pfc Hartwick was shipped overseas in June 1944. He had trained at Camp Carson, Col; in the Panama Canal zone; at Camp George G. Meade, Md, and Camp Roberts, California. He was a member of the 47th Infantry, going to England before being sent to France. Letters received with regularity had later located him in Belgium and in Germany.
