Bryan Nelson Hatleback, the son of Richard and Sally (Morgan) Hatleback, was born April 6, 1959, in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. He attended Rhinelander High School, graduating in 1977. Bryan attended one year of college and then attended trade school in Staples, Minnesota, to study photo finishing maintenance.
On December 20, 1986, Bryan was united in marriage to Katheryn Fern Goerner in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. They became the parents of two sons, Nathan and Brandon and made their home in Oklahoma, Illinois, and Colorado before moving to Fairfax, Missouri, in 2007. While in Colorado, Bryan was employed by Qualex Photo, as a photo finishing maintenance technician. Bryan was currently employed by Midwest Data Center, Rock Port, Missouri, as a device repair technician. Bryan very quickly proved his ability to “fix anything”, repairing delicate electronic devices, and in some cases return them to the customer functioning better than brand new.
