Philip Carleton Bartlett Obituary
Philip Carleton Bartlett March 3, 1942 June 13, 2012 Dr. Phil Bartlett passed away peacefully at his home in Tiburon on June 13. He is survived by his wife Pamela, their children Carly and Tyler and three older sons and their wives: Ted Bartlett and Donna Hoghooghi, Dan and Keri Bartlett, and Will and Jamie Bartlett; eight grand-children, Owen, Jasmine, Ella, Millie, Quinn, Tatum, Declan and Willy. Phil was born in Seattle and grew up in Berkeley, then Orinda. He was in the first class at Miramonte high school but spent most of his time working on cars so he transferred to Robert Louis Stevenson School in Pebble Beach which propelled him to his beloved Stanford University and then Tulane Medical School. After an internship in New Orleans, Phil served his country in Vietnam in the US Air Force where he became a trusted physician and surgeon to locals and American troops. He returned to the US in 1970, retrieved his family from Miami and drove across our country in a VW Bug to buy the first family home in West Portal with Vietnam poker proceeds and began his residency at UCSF. Dr. Bartlett served San Francisco for 40 years as a highly respected adult and pediatric otolaryngologist (ear, nose & throat). Dr. Bartlett's patients loved his smile, bow ties, calm yet confident demeanor and results. Phil loved his family, being outdoors, roses, cars, Mozart and Stanford Football. Childhood in the Trinity Alps and college summers with the US Forest Service in Tahoe lead to years of family camping, river rafting, hiking and skiing. He was a member of The Guardsmen and the Bohemian Club. A memorial service will be scheduled for family and friends. The family requests the memorials be contributions to The Guardsmen: www.Guardsmen.org and The Stanford Cancer Institute: http://cancer.stanford.edu/ help/gift.html
