To the Bartow family,

A Great One has passed, leaving us all less than we were, but blessed by knowing him in some way.

I traveled to China with Coach in 1973. He had the honor of being the first coach for a team sport to tour The People's Republic of China, a collection of all-star college basketball players and team support members. It is an honor to have known and worked with Coach Bartow.

My condolences to the family. My father worked for Coach Bartow at UAB at the start in 1978. Dad always enjoyed working for Gene. After my dad's illness in 1981, and he had to quit his post as assistant AD to Gene, Gene and Ruth were always so kind and supportive of my mom, Betty Polk, in her remaining years.
God bless you all.
