Barto Attig, Jr.
Barto Lester Attig, Jr. passed away on September 24, 2017, in Guiguinto, Philippines. He was born to Barto Lester Attig, Sr. and Caroline Roysten Attig in East Orange (NJ). He grew up in York (PA) with his younger brother, Ronald Attig.
Bart loved adventure. Whether hopping a freight train or crisscrossing the country with his family in a van, he possessed a lifelong willingness to meet and be moved by the unexpected, larger forces and possibilities in life.
Bart also loved the gospel and his Heavenly Father, and shared this deep love with his children and everyone around him. He was unwavering in his convictions and was unceasing in his efforts to learn, grow and gain wisdom. He strived to be the best he could every day.
An aircraft sheetmetal worker, Bart could build almost anything. It may not have been pretty, but it worked. He valued hard work, a good deal and gratitude.
Bart loved music, motorcycles, car races, a conspiracy theory, buffet restaurants and trains. But more than anything he loved his children, grandchildren and fellow man (and women). There was no hesitation in giving — whether it was money, time or the benefit of the doubt.
He is survived by his wife, Mercedes Santos Attig, and extended family in the Philippines. He is remembered with love by five children (Julee, Monica, Holly, Michael and Aaron), 16 grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. Bart is also survived by former wives Margaret Attig and Joyce Zuvich.
A celebration of life will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 18, at the LDS meetinghouse located at 600 E. Telegraph Street in Washington, UT. A lunch will follow.
