August 12, 1942 ~ October 13, 2020

Mr. Roy Thomas Bartlett, beloved husband of the late Mrs. Sharon Bartlett, passed away peacefully at St. Joseph’s Home – Carmel Hospice in Medicine Hat on Tuesday, October 13, 2020, at the age of 78 years. Left to cherish Roy’s memory is his devoted daughter, Kelly (Karl) Sivertsen; grandson, Brant Sivertsen and granddaughter, Kaysha (Brad) Jetter. He was predeceased by his wife, Sharon as well as two sons, Rudy and Jody. Roy married Sharon Gonda on March 31, 1964. They started their married life together in Brownfield and moved to Medicine Hat in 1968. Their marriage was blessed with three children, Rudy, Kelly and Jody. Most of Roy’s working career was with Medicine Hat Greenhouse where he started as a labourer and was later promoted to management due to his exceptional work ethic. He managed the greenhouse until its closure before accepting employment with Hat Hardware where he worked until retirement. Roy enjoyed many things in life, some of which included travelling, baking and cooking; and of course everyone knows Roy LOVED shopping! He excelled at gardening and was more than happy to share the produce. His favourite thing to do was share dinner and play games at his daughter’s house with the family and friends who loved him.

One Condolence for “ROY BARTLETT”

  1. Darlene Gallup says:

    I am so sorry to hear of Roy’s passing. I worked with him at the Medicine Hat Green Houses. He was an amazing person, full of life and laughter. I was just 19 years old then and he took me under his wing and helped me so much. It was my first real job.
    He had a nick name for me – Chinsey, It was because I had used the word Chinsey one day describing someone who didn’t like to spend their money. He had never heard that word before he said. From that day on he called me Chinsey . I will and have thought of him very fondly over the years. He was a great person. RIP Roy.
