Left to cherish Lou’s memory is his beloved wife of nearly 64 years, Shirley Miller Hartfiel; his children, Debbie Hegge (Dave), Jeff Hartfiel (Tammy), Robyn Merrell, and Sharon Hicks; and his brother, Rudy Hartfiel. He will also be greatly missed by his 10 grandchildren, numerous great-grandchildren, and a multitude of dear friends. Lou began his career as a letter carrier for the United States Postal Service.

At the time of his passing, Lou was serving his community as the Mayor of Crescent Springs, Kentucky.
