My husband met "Bart" at an auction. Little did both know that they were almost neighbors. The two became friends and shared many a conversation. We had the pleasure of touring his beautiful cabin and seeing some of his amazing wood works.Godspeed our dear friend until we meet again.

His obit doesn’t mention that he was also a sprint car team owner, I was his driver, together we won many races and a championship together. I consider it my good fortune, and an honor to have known him. He is one of the finest men I have ever met! Godspeed my friend. Randy S Kaylor
