FRESNO, Calif. — Floyd and Violet Hartwig died holding hands at the end of a marriage lasting 67 years.
Their daughter, Donna Scharton, said Thursday that once the family sensed the couple was close to death, they pushed their two hospice beds together, gently joining their hands. Floyd went first, followed by Violet five hours later. They died Feb. 11 at home in Central California, as they had wished.
Scharton says her parents’ romance sparked at a dance hall when Floyd, a decorated Navy sailor, was home on shore leave. They went on to have three children, four grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
Scharton says that people often commented on her parents’ connection.
Cynthia Letson says that once her grandfather passed, the family told her grandmother that she could go too.

The Justice Department will not file charges against George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin, a Justice official told USA TODAY.
Justice officials planned to notify Trayvon’s family before announcing the decision, according to the official who was not authorized to speak publicly.
Zimmerman shot Martin on Feb. 26, 2012 as he walked home after purchasing snacks at a convenience store in Sanford, Florida. Federal prosecutors found insufficient evidence to prove Zimmerman, part of a neighborhood watch group, intentionally violated Trayvon’s civil rights.
In 2013, a Florida jury found Zimmerman not guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter, sparking protests in several cities.
