David Paul Hartley Obituary (1974 - 2021) Akron Beacon Journal

The Lightner Tire family has suffered another huge loss! David Hartley passed away on August 6, 2021. He battled a long & courageous fight with brain cancer. David was an employee of ours for over 20 years, and served as supervisor of our tire repair shop for the last 6 years. David had a big heart, he loved to work out, & we always enjoyed hearing his stories about his favorite series, The Walking Dead. He will be greatly missed by us all. Please keep his family in your prayers during this difficult time!

The time is now to defeat ALS!

The Walk to Defeat ALS is on August 25th - 10am at Lock 3!! Team Lightner walks to help bring awareness to this horrific disease. We also walk in memory of my Dad - Jess Lightner, who lost his battle in January of 2011.
I can't explain the impact that this disease has had on our family and in taking the life of such a wonderful man way too soon. There is NO treatment and NO cure for ALS.

PLEASE consider coming down and walking with Team Lightner or clicking on my link below and making a donation.
You can also join our team from my page! Your donations help so many patients who are currently living with this disease.
