Words can not express the loss we feel. Uncle Dick was such a family man and loved us one and all. Always a smile and never failed to ask how we were doing. He will be missed by all his nieces, nephews and beyond. However, the memories he left us will last forever. Love you!!

Don was a great person and a good friend. He, Leslie, and a whole crew of us got together often to watch the Hogs win and lose. My condolences go out to his family and to Leslie at this difficult time. Don, I will miss you.

My First Cousin. We grew up together. Always a character and our family reunions weren't the same without his wit and stories. Marv and I loved our visits with him in Little Rock. Great host and he loved family. Couldn't do enough for those he loved. We sure will miss him.RIP dear cousin!

I remember the first time I met Don. I was a newly graduated LPN at the time and worked on 6C. I remember being so impressed that he would bring flowers every Monday to Leslie on the unit. I remember her saying "they are just the day old ones that are marked down", and then she would laugh. I said at the time, "well it's the thought that counts" and she agreed. They seemed to have a special friendship. Those two always were going somewhere and doing something. Either it be a Razorback game or traveling out of the country. They seemed happy together. He was definitely a character and loved life in itself. He will be greatly missed.
Thoughts and prayers for comfort for Leslie, family, and friends.

Don was a good friend. He was an avid Razorback fan. He was a great cook. He loved life and his family. He was an interesting person with awesome stories of all his travels. He will be missed! May your memories give you comfort!

I was a co-worker of Don and realized quickly that he was a softy at heart; even though his thunderous voice said different. We had seen each other at the store or elsewhere now and then. One Christmas season, I saw him and he was stressing about getting his cards out to friends and family. That was about seven years ago. I took on the job to type up his annual Xmas message to his family, of whom he loved dearly and made sure his words and spelling were appropriate. He bought the Xmas paper and I ran them off and he picked them up; staying awhile and discussing and politicking with my husband over a couple of beers. In fact, I had said to Roy the other day that he would be coming around after Thanksgiving or so...…
maybe for hire me. Please know, he may have been a little loud and
strong in opinion.....but we LOVED HIM AND WILL DEEPLY MISS
HIM AS WELL. May God bless you and comfort you all during your loss.

Most sincerely,
Charlotte Houston

I met Don back in 2003. We had a business relationship but also a friendship. He was the coolest guy, always joking, poking fun, and telling stories. I loved to hear his stories about the places he'd visited. Unfortunately I will be out of town during the celebration. My sincere condolences to the family. I will never forget Don Bartelt.
