My love goes out to the family of Bart. I had the privilege of being his personal trainer since February of 2017. He had made so much healthy progress and gained so much strength. His proud moments were reminding me he’d always had a healthy breakfast, he hadn’t skipped a breakfast in 65 years he’d say, and he wasn’t about to skip one now!! He helped me grow as a person seeing how much he cared about myself and those around him. During our sessions every week I got to hear so many fun stories of his life, his motorcycle trips, and most importantly of his family. His love for his grandchildren and sons couldn’t be put into words, he updated me on their accomplishments endlessly and also spoke of the next time he’d get to see them. Bart was such a light in my life and I am so thankful for the time I was able to spend with him. He quickly became a great friend to me and I’ll miss him every day.

I have a huge hole in my heart ❤️ with the loss of a great friend. Bart was the kindest person I have ever met. I was so blessed to have him in my life and I know I would not have made it through the past 5 plus years without all his love and support.
My support and love goes out to all the family.
