Ray Hartwick, longtime producer and production manager passes away.

Raymond Hartwick, who shepherded such motion pictures as The Untouchables, Scrooged, St. Elmo's Fire and Scarface has passed away.

Born in Manhattan in 1928, Hartwick began his Hollywood career as a teamster, in local 817, working on such films as The Panic in Needle Park and The Godfather before serving as Teamster Captain on Serpico and Taxi Driver among others. He became a Production Manager in 1979 and he would serve in that capacity on features including Annie, Out of Bounds and For the Boys. His producing career would include such titles as Brian DePalma's The Untouchables, with whom he also collaborated on Scarface. He last produced The River Wild in 1994. His legacy across the industry continues to this day as his foray into entertainment paved the way for three subsequent generations of successful film executives, producers and artists. Known for his sense of humor, generosity and kind supportive nature, Hartwick's mentoring of those in the industry extended beyond his family as his reputation for offering to assist others in their careers made him adored by entertainment professionals and executives alike; a reputation that endures still today.

He is survived by his wife Virginia Hartwick as well as three children Joseph Hartwick, Raymond Hartwick and Barbara Levine from his first marriage to Amelia Hartwick who passed away in 2013. He is also survived by 8 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. He was 91.

A celebration of his life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hope Hospice at donate.hopehcs.org or the Motion Picture Television Fund at mptf.com/donate
