Bart Yancey, 67 years of age died on May 9, 2017 in Playas De Tijuana, Baja California after a sudden heart attack. He is survived by his son, Richard Travis Yancey of Imperial Beach, his life partner Carol Hultin of Imperial Beach, his mother H. Clare Pharis and his sister, Elizabeth Yancey both of Sedona, Arizona.
Bart loved the ocean, surfing, swimming, walking on the beach and playing golf. Without a doubt his other greatest joy in life was playing guitar and singing. Of course none of these approached his love for his son and partner. His career included entertainment, promotion, woodworking, and sales. He will be remembered for a generous heart, a great love of life and a keen intellect.
An informal memorial gathering of his friends and family was recently held where Bart entertained for many years at Ye Olde Plank Inn. Donations can be made to “gofundme.com - In loving memory of Bart Yancey.”
