Barton Furnas Seever, Jr. of Queen Creek, Arizona, was born on July 24, 1945, in Merced, California. He passed away surrounded by loving family members on September 25, 2021 at the age of 76, due to complications from cancer treatments.
Bart was preceded in death by his father Barton F. Seever, mother Grace A. Seever, and his sister Sherry S. Acevedo. He is survived by his beloved wife Janice of 50 years, stepmother Arduth Seever, sister Diane Schneider, six children: Aaron (Amy), Adam (Hydee), Daniel, Angela (Jeff Monson), Rochelle (Derrick Spitzer), Rosanne (David Tomich), and 27 grandchildren.
Throughout his life, Bart Seever was a beacon of generosity and service. He would always give without question even when they barely had enough, welcome strangers into their home even when they had no room, and serve others even when he had his own struggles. He was a man of God and had tremendous faith. He had a testimony of Jesus as the Son of God, and the Savior of the world, and that was evident in the way that he lived. He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Great Lakes area as a young man, as well as a couples mission with his wife, Janice from 2017-2019 in Phoenix.
Bart grew up on his family’s olive ranch, and later became a controller at Striblings Nursery and Kings View in California. He was a co-founder and CFO at Bulwark Exterminating. His many hobbies included genealogy, traveling with Janice to Europe and Hawaii, biking through Europe, and hiking and backpacking in Yosemite.
Bart’s pride and joy was his wife and family. He taught his children love, perseverance, strength, compassion, grit, and empathy. In June, the entire family including all 27 of his grandchildren celebrated Janice and Bart’s 50th wedding anniversary in Oceanside, California, which is a memory the family will always cherish.
