Dave Bartlett's Memorial

$5,366 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 50 people in 12 months
Dave Bartlett was, as I've been told, a "legend" to his coworkers. He was also a loving husband, and the most patient father and grandfather anyone could have asked for. There was nothing my father wouldn't do for family and friends. Just this summer he helped a friend put a new roof on their cabin, helped my sister move, and bought the material to make my house a new, safer back set of stairs. 

Dad gave so much to everyone.

On Novemeber 12, 2017 David Bartlett died of a heart attack at 53 years old. It was too soon, and no one was prepared. Least of all my father.

Few decisions had been discussed, no arrangements made, and no money left for us to use toward the many expenses my father left behind. The bulk of the money raised will have to go toward my father's cremation and memorial, and then toward paying off the debts he left behind.

Dave was a wonderful person, and he gave so much to everyone around him during his short time with us. I want my father to rest easy, and I want this most difficult time to be just a little less worrisome, a little less about money worries for my mother and more about trying to recover from this great man's passing.

We are so greatful for what my Dad did for us, and yet it seems as though there was so much more he should be around for, should have gotten to do for himself. I hope we can make his memorial as wonderful as he was, and that I will see everyone he helped there to celebrate his life.

I would like to thank all of you for making this memorial possible. I hope you will join us in celebrating his life of generosity and kindness. It has truly been inspirational to see how many people have been willing to help on and off this platform and to hear all the wonderful things everyone has had to say about my dad. I hope that as we recover from this remarkable loss that we never forget him and his wonderful impact on our lives.

Saturday, December 2nd, is the memorial for my father. It will take place at Beaver Lake Nature Center, indoors, from 2-5. No one needs to stay the whole time, there are no speeches or services scheduled. There is no need to bring anything but a memory of him with you. <3
