Not sure what to say?

Dr. Hartman was one of the deans of the School of Medicine who helped make the school what it is today. His dedication to west Texas and the healthcare needs of its citizens led to some innovations that are lasting today. I regret learning of his passing and our loss.

Cut his 'teeth driving a tank...' (literally)

He was one of our Dean(s) at the Medical School in the Formative Years.
Taught us respect by being respectful.

We shall miss him so...

The Drs. Snodgrass

Dr. Hartman was a wonderful, soft spoken and brilliant physician and educator. He and Dr. Seliger, Chief of Anatomy, interviewed me for Med school at TTUSM in 1971 for the first class to complete all training at TTUSM, Class of 75.

Oh, Jean, Martha, Tom and Jim,
I have had Ted in my thoughts the last few months. I knew him as a quiet humble and unassuming man from the early days in Lubbock until we moved to Virginia in 2006. I remember sharing so much in George's room the night George passed away. He and your family hold special thoughts and memories for me. Judy and I send our deepest condolences.

May the love of family and friends assist you through your grief. God bless one and all.

Or thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of loss. What a great example of a life well lived. Thank you for your service Dr. Hartman

It was a honor to take care of such a loving and sweet man. We are sending prayers your way.
* Home Instead*

May God's loving presence be with you as you plan to celebrate Ted's life--a life so well-lived.
