Kaden Clarance Hartman, 14, left this earth and met God early as the sun rose on April 1st, 2019, just four days shy of his 15th birthday. Born April 5th, 2004 in Norfolk, Virginia to Michael and Kathy Hartman. Although disadvantaged by the rare genetic disease, Niemann Pick Type C, also referred to as “Childhood Alzheimer’s”, he always had a positive outlook on life. Unfortunately, the disease took him too soon. Kaden brought life everywhere he went. His infectious smile lit up every room he entered. Kaden enjoyed spending time outdoors with family and his favorite dogs in the world, “Roscoe and Hendrix” and his beloved kitty’s “Moonpie and Bamzoo”. Music and video games were some of his favorite indoor activities. He was influenced by his brothers and parents taste in rock music, his playlists loaded with Green Day and System of a Down. He now rests in peace, listening to the music of the heavens.
