Funeral Home Memorial Services of Iowa
Hunter Anthony Hartsook, with home residences in Ankeny and Des Moines, Iowa was born in the early morning hours of October 3, 2001 to Angee (Wilson, Hartsook) and Tony Hartsook at Mercy Hospital in Des Moines. He departed us on Sept 10, 2021. At the time of his passing, he was a resident of Iowa City and a second year student at the University of Iowa in the pre-Pharmacy program.
Visitation will be held from 2:00-3:30 p.m., Saturday, September 18, 2021 at Memorial Services of Iowa Funeral Home (4208 N Ankeny Blvd).
During his short time with us, he was an avid reader, gamer, and consumer of music and movies. His core interests never stayed that way for long, as he always went out of his way to explore different genres and styles. He had been a member of Ankeny Cub Scout Pack 281 and Ankeny Boy Scout Troop 85. Most recently he worked at Leaning Tower of Pizza in Ankeny, where only he made the onion rings correctly. He enjoyed role playing video games, classic Hitchcock movies and his record album collection could at best be called eclectic. From Mom he gained an appreciation of music, and his guitar collection would almost take two hands to count. From Dad he gained an appreciation for Star Trek, and many hours were spent with “episode time”. From the rest of us, he gained friendships and connections that only they might share. Hunter was intensely private with his emotions, and if you were a recipient of them, you were truly blessed.
Hunter is survived by his parents, Tony (Londa) Hartsook of Des Moines, and Angee Wilson Vinzant of Ankeny; grandparents, Steve and Deb Liddle of Meriden; aunt and uncle, Laura and Lucas Liddle of Marion; and many other aunts, uncles, and relatives to carry on his memory. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Dean and Harriett Hartsook of Creston.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the family of Angee Vinzant or to the family of Tony Hartsook.
