Bart worked at Walmart for 15 years. He would always greet people with a smile. He always loved coming down to La Junta to visit his kids and grandkids. He enjoyed cookouts, camping and fishing and listening to Christian music. When he would see a nice low rider or a car he liked, he would always say “Man that car looks cherry”. He loved going to church and he always took everyone’s kids to church with him, his grandkids, nieces and nephew. He would always spread the word of God to all those who would listen. He loves his church in liberal and his pastor Mario and his family. He was dedicated to his church. He would also love going to Pastor Paul Simon ‘s church when he would visit in La Junta and would enjoy talking about God with Pastor Paul Simon and his wife Gloria.
