Dawson Ray Hartwig Obituary
1996 - 2017 Dawson Ray Hartwig, 20, of Rancho Cucamonga, went to be with his Heavenly Father on Friday, January 27, 2017. Born in Loma Linda, CA, May 23, 1996 to Mark and Holly Hartwig. Dawson graduated with honors from Etiwanda High School and was a 3rd year student pursuing a Sports Marketing degree at California Baptist University and Riverside Community College. Dawson and his family are members of Water of Life Community Church in Fontana, CA. Dawson was not only smart but creative. He was musically gifted playing guitar and composing music. He also expressed himself through his art and drawings. Dawson was 6'6" and loved basketball. He lettered in water polo at Etiwanda High School where his #3 swim cap will be retired. He then played on the water polo team at CBU. He was well known to those around him for his constant humor and genuine heart. His unconditional love of others lives on. Visit the @LoveLikeDawson Facebook page to see the wonderful impact Dawson made on his family, friends and others. Dawson is survived by his parents Mark & Holly Hartwig, two brothers Tucker and Jeremiah and twin sisters Noelle and Samantha; grandparents Betty Hartwig of Las Vegas, NV and Jeremiah Dawson of Rutherfordton, NC, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. The memorial service will be held at Water of Life Community Church (7625 East Ave., Fontana, CA 92336) Tuesday, February 7th at 11:00am. We invite anyone who would like to come celebrate Dawson's life and Dawson's love with us. Following the service, there will be a reception at 1:30pm at the Jessie Turner Center (15556 Summit Ave., Fontana, CA 92336). Everyone is welcome and encouraged to come to the reception afterwards to share more stories about Dawson's life. Here, the firefighters will be serving lunch so bring an appetite. Dawson surely would. If you feel led to give anything in his memory or in lieu of flowers, please donate to Water of Life and write "Global Outreach" in memo section. Dawson had planned on going on a mission trip this summer to Thailand. Monies raised will go to reach children around the world which would be Dawson's desire. Dawson had a heart for others no matter who they were or where they were from. The more we hear about Dawson from everyone he touched, the more we understand how big his heart was. Love Like Dawson isn't just a slogan. It is our response to his life and our way of choosing love in every situation. Dawson's love is unconditional, it is loyal, it is forgiving, it is warm, it is free. We aren't able to love like this on our own. Christ is the one who can love through us in all situations. Today's world could use a lot more unconditional love. Let's love like Dawson. #LoveLikeDawson
