Paul David Bartley
July 08, 1961 ‒ September 25, 2015
Paul David Bartley, age 54, of Utica, OH, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, September 25, 2015 on the family farm surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Bedford, OH, on July 8, 1961 to Walton W. and Betty (Holbrook) Bartley.
Paul worked at Ariel Corporation in the maintenance department and enjoyed his shift and co-workers. He loved farming and being on the farm. Paul was a do it yourself man and enjoyed fixing things around the farm. One of his greatest loves was going camping and being outdoors with his boys. He enjoyed sitting under the stars with a cold beverage. Paul enjoyed watching television shows such as Columbo and Hogan’s Heroes and many times would race home quickly to avoid missing one of them. Christmas was his favorite holiday and hanging lights was another way for Paul to show how much he enjoyed it. Most of all, Paul was a family man, proud of his two boys and loving his wife to no end.
He is survived by his loving wife, Beth Bartley; sons, Nathan and Zachary Bartley; brother, Dennis (Trudy) Bartley; two sisters, Peggy (Steve) Porter and Suzanne (Don) Townsend; brother-in-law, Scott (Rhonda) Noble; sister-in-law’s, Crystal Morris and LuAnn (Tim) McCauley; many nieces and nephews; and companions Sheba and Freeway.
Paul is preceded in death by his father, Walton Bartley and father-in-law, Dale Noble.
