Bart was an amazing human and a global citizen. From the moment we met, he demonstrated care, compassion, humor, wisdom, and a deep passion for living life fully. He touched many lives, and when the moment arose, he was the first to offer understanding and assistance. His authenticity and presence were rare among people. A light has gone out in the world, and he will be both remembered and greatly missed for the impacts and contributions he made.
