After a long, strong and courageous fight against cancer, it is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of David Michael Bartelt on New Year’s Eve, 2018. He passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family. He will always be lovingly remembered by his children, Holiday (Chris), Amanda and Jake, his grandson, Gabriel, and soon-to-be grandson, Baby Bohne, as a quick witted and silly dad/”peepa” who had fittingly been born on April Fool’s Day, 1955 in Elgin, Illinois.
Waiting for him with open arms are his father and mother; Edward and Dorothy (Ehorn): brother, John, and grandson, Baby Boy Bohne.
Although “up North” would be ideal, a gathering in remembrance of the Bartelt Family will be held at the family home located at 624 Eastview St., Elgin, Illinois on Sunday, January 27th from 12:00-4:00. Please join us as we celebrate the lives of Ed, Dort, John, and Dave, all proud to be lifelong Elginites.
While both Ed and John served in the military, Dave’s number wasn’t called, but we would like to suggest memorial donations being made to the American Legion located in Elgin, Illinois.
