HELLAM They say "only the good die young" and that could not be truer for Trent E. Bartz - a son, brother, soldier, uncle, friend, nephew, cousin, and so much more. Trent entered the gates of heaven on Wednesday, August 19, 2015, at the young age of 20. He was born December 2, 1994, in York, the son of Bruce and Kimberly Bartz (Kashner). Trent attended Eastern York School District and graduated in 2013, where he was a member of the student council and Varsity Football team. He gave his voice to the York County Junior and Senior Honors choir and was an active member of the community. He was enrolled at Shippensburg University, majoring in Criminal Justice. Trent was a specialist in the 203 Military Division of the United States Army Reserve. He was not only proud of his service and commitment to the military, but Trent was one hell of an American. He was known for his passion for this country and devotion to the meaning behind being an American. Trent was full of life, and was charismatic and passionate about the people, places, and things he loved so much. He will always be remembered for the gifts he continually gave to those who had the pleasure of crossing his path. We hope to one day cross those paths again, but for now, we will remember Trent in our hearts. Trent is survived by his parents Bruce and Kim Bartz; his sister, Brittney Ehrhart; and nephew, Brayden Ehrhart. He also leaves his maternal grandparents, Robert and Dee Kashner of Dover, and was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Ronald and Charlene Bartz. Trent leaves behind many aunts, uncles, cousins, and close friends that will miss him dearly. Trent's family invites all who wish to commemorate his life at a Celebration of Life Ceremony on Thursday, August 27, at 6 p.m. There will be visitation times on Wednesday, August 26, from 5 to 8 p.m. and on Thursday from 5 to 6 p.m. Both visitations and the ceremony will be held at Living Word Community Church, 2530 Cape Horn Road, Red Lion. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Wounded Warrior Project in memory of Trent E. Bartz, P.O. Box 758517, Topeka, KS 66675. Arrangements by the Etzweiler Funeral Homes and Cremation Service, 1111 E. Market St., York.

To the Bartz family,

I am sorry that I couldn't be there to pay my respects to your family personally. I had Trent in class his senior year, he was one of the nicest guys that I ever worked with. He was willing to do whatever he needed to be successful. His personality was outstanding, after he graduated I ran into Trent several times while he was working at Dick's Sporting Goods. Every time I went it seemed like Trent was there to greet me at the door and after he would find out what I was there for, he would walk me back to the section I needed. He was truly and outstanding young man and it is a tragic loss to everyone who knew him. Keeping you and your family in our prayers. God Bless

Bruce, my prayers are with you in the difficult time. It's been a long time but I remember Trent when he was a "little guy", coming into the office and how he always made me smile.
