Condolence: I am a co worker of Barts at the deli. I feel so blessed to have met such a wonderful man who brought joy to everyone that met him. The few years we knew each other were cut way too short, but his smile and laugh will forever be in my memories. RIP Bart. You will be greatly missed.

Condolence From: Nancy Caffrey-Schafer
Condolence: My thoughts and prayers go out to all of Bart's loved ones. Our family got to know Bart in Boy Scoots, Troop 48. He was a great guy, always kind, courtesy and thought of others before himself... my late husband, Dan was an Assistant Scout Master and my son, Danny was also a Boy Scout in the same troop. Bart and I reconnected on Facebook a few years ago, which was really special, as we would reminisce about the past. You fought a good fight, my friend !!!
Love and God Bless
