My condolences to his family. Dr. Bartman was an excellent teacher. Never ruffled, he knew how to get our attention and cooperation, even on the field. He was a great example to us and an effective teacher, as well as a kind person.

I am sorry to hear of his passing.

Virgil Bartman was a true gentleman and scholar.
We are not sure how we shall keep our baby grand at A-440 without him. Blessings to all the Bartman family. It has been our privilege to know such a great man as our friend.
