He attended school in Nederland and graduated from Nederland High School in 1988. He worked as a carpenter before becoming an engineer with the Union Pacific Railroad. He recently graduated from LIT with a certification in HVAC. Innumerable friends knew Bart as a caring, giving person who never met a stranger. He loved life and most often was the life of the party with his infectious laugh and ready sense of humor. He had a carefree spirit and usually saw the best in every one and every thing. He was very family oriented and loved being surrounded with friends and family and loved all occasions that called for large celebrations with those he loved. He was also generous with his time and ready to help any one who needed him. His passions were the Dallas Cowboys, going to the beach, hunting, crabbing, and his beloved dog Daisy.
