Richard “Bart” Barton Farmer

Richard “Bart” Barton Farmer, 68, passed away on January 6, 2018. Bart was born July 11, 1949 in Scott city, Kansas to Donald and Velma Farmer.

Bart is survived by his sons, Alan (Julie Dewhirst) Farmer, Mike Farmer, sisters, Linda (John) Peterson, Kathy Durham and Chris (Jim) Johnson. Bart was preceded in death by his parents.

Bart was owner/CEO of ProPay LLC, until his retirement. He liked to travel, with trips to India & Israel. He also loved spending time in the mountains of Colorado, mostly the Green Mountain Falls area. He loved to fish and hike while there. He also got “hooked’ on deep sea fishing in the gulf. His greatest trips lately have been with his two sons, enjoying every moment they could.

Bart had a passion for helping those in need, especially the homeless around the Kansas City Area, volunteering many hours with several groups to help feed, clothe and give support to ones in need. He had made a connection with a lot of people, just by being a friend to them.

    Great Brother-in-Christ, Leader, Mentor, Shoulder, Giver, Homeless Advocate, Animal Supporter, Encourager, Friend.

    Our first meeting in 1996:
    Bart: Keith, I need to you be a den leader for Pack 3210
    Me: Let me think about it
    Bart: OK. Great opportunity and it’s only one hour a week.

    Been keeping an eye on him ever since.

    Really going to miss our Tuesday morning accountability breakfasts.

    No words can describe his love.

    Bart was a truly great man who put all of his faith in our Lord. He will be missed by many people and was a inspiration to many of us. I love you Bart and will miss our talks we had.

    My first encounter with Bart was at Uplift. My wife and I had volunteered to be cooks. Everytime I had come by there Bart was genuinely interested in what was going on in our life. He rejoiced with us when I told him positive news in our lives and what God was doing. I know I will miss him on this Earth, but brother I will see you soon in our forever home. Love you Bart.

    Bart was a classmate and of course there are a lot of memories! The last time I talked to him he told me about his love for the Lord! So happy for him and know that he is having a wonderful time in heaven!

    Bart blessed me and our Redemption ragamuffins by sharing his life story along with his amazing smile, loving spirit and humble transparency. Glad to have known him and shared the love and compassion of Christ alongside.
