Dale Bartlett Obituary, Forever In Our Heart Dale Bartlett


Dale Bartlett Obituary, Death – In loving memory of Dale Lynn Bartlett, who departed this world on Thursday, December 14, 2023, at the age of 70, we gather to celebrate a life well-lived and bid farewell to a cherished member of our community. Lynn, as he was affectionately known, was born on August 8, 1953, in Portsmouth, and was the son of the late David and Betty Bartlett. Lynn’s journey was marked by love, family, and a profound impact on those around him. He leaves behind a legacy of warmth and kindness that will be forever etched in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing him.

Preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Michael Bartlett, Lynn is survived by his three loving children: John Bartlett of Portsmouth, Michael Bartlett and his wife Vanessa of Mims, FL, and Ashley Bartlett of Portsmouth. Additionally, he is survived by his brother Patrick Bartlett and sister-in-law Cheri of Stout. Lynn leaves a lasting imprint on the lives of his three cherished grandchildren, Jaris, Erin, and Michael Jr., and his nephews, Nick and Joe Bartlett.

A Celebration of Life is planned to honor Lynn on Tuesday, December 19, 2023, from 5:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. at Melcher Hammer Funeral in Portsmouth. This gathering will serve as a testament to the impact Lynn had on the lives of those who surrounded him, providing an opportunity for friends and family to share fond memories and find comfort in each other’s company.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that memorial contributions be made in Lynn’s name to SOMC Hospice, recognizing the compassionate care they provided during Lynn’s final days. This act of generosity will contribute to the ongoing support of individuals and families facing end-of-life challenges. As we come together to celebrate Lynn’s life, may we find solace in the cherished memories he leaves behind and draw strength from the enduring love he shared with all who knew him.
