Bart was Director of Infrastructure Services, a long-time employee of the town of Cardston, keeping all departments running at their best. He was trustworthy, a man of integrity, reliable and hard working.
Bart was good to this world. He was full of selfless love for all, serving without hesitation. He was a great example of kindness, humility, love and laughter. He spent a lifetime creating, fixing, and building everything. He had a quiet and tender demeaner, always pointing out the good in people or a situation. He had a great love of scouting and influenced many young men. His spirituality carved the path for all to follow to find happiness in life no matter what they might be going through. He worked hard, played hard, and loved hard, despite his struggle with diabetes and heart challenges. He truly lived his best life.
He will be missed by his wonderful wife, children and grandchildren, his and Gloria’s families. All are blessed to have known this great man.
At Bart’s request, there will be no funeral service.
