•RICHARD A. BARTA
Richard A. Barta, age 84, of Rossford, Ohio, passed away on Saturday, August 31, 2019, surrounded by his family. He was born on December 16, 1934, in Toledo, Ohio, to Albert and Margaret (Martin) Barta. He was a graduate of Macomber High School. Dick proudly served his country in the U.S. Army. He married Joyce A. (Seppeler) and together they raised four children.
Dick was employed with Libbey-Owens-Ford Glass Company in Rossford for 36 years, where he also was a union steward.
Dick spent many years coaching his sons’ baseball teams, and raced stock cars. He enjoyed golfing, fishing and was an avid Michigan Wolverines fan. He loved going to Evans Lake in Irish Hills with his family, where he would spend hours pulling water skiers and fishing.
His greatest love was his family. Dick was known as a “good guy” and his family was very lucky to have a husband, father and grandfather like him.
Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife of 62 years, Joyce; children, Denise (Dirk) Fenimore, Scott (Sandy) Barta and Pete (Michelle) Barta. Also surviving are six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, along with many nieces and nephews.
Dick was preceded in death by his parents; son, Michael Barta; granddaughter, Katherine Fenimore, and three siblings.
In accordance with Dick’s wishes there will be no visitation and services will be private. The family would like to thank Hospice of Northwest Ohio for their compassion and care during Dick’s final days. Contributions in Dick’s memory may be directed to Hospice of Northwest Ohio at 30000 East River Road, Perrysburg, Ohio 43551. Sujkowski Walker Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
