Bart Deason died quietly in his sleep after a brief fight with a very aggressive cancer. Bart was a mechanical design engineer until his retirement in 2020 when he made the move to Montana to live his perfect life surrounded by the beauty and nature of the bitterroot valley. He was an army veteran and held a bachelors degree in Psychology. He loved rock n' roll, science fiction, nature and animals. He supported more wildlife charities than could be counted. He loved his family and his friends and was known by all to be a kind, generous soul with a salty sense of humor. All who knew him, called him friend. He is survived by his daughters, Kirstin Deason of Santa Barbara, California and Tanya Pray of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho and two granddaughters, Genevieve Castle and Zoe Flores, and his sister Kathleen Faulconer of Sylmar, California and so many wonderful nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.May his memory be a blessing.
