John D. Bartman, Sr.

John Daniel Bartman, Sr., 62, of Catasauqua passed away at Lehigh Valley Hospital, Muhlenberg on Saturday, June 11, 2022.  He was a son of Ralph L. Bartman, Jr. and Ellen (Kuntz) Senape.  

John was a proud Journeyman Carpenter and an elected E-Board representative for Local Union 600.  He was a gifted artist who had a unique talent for drawing hysterical recognizable caricatures.  In the late 70's, John proudly and creatively drew the concert poster picture of a mohawk sporting punk rocker sitting in an electric chair for a group called the "Misfits".  
He will be missed by all who knew and loved him including his three sons: John Daniel, Jr., Joseph Eugene & James Andrew; his mother Ellen and sisters Amey & Lisa Senape.  Brothers: Russell Bartman, and Ralph III "Whitey", Whitey's wife Cindy and their sons Ralph IV, William, and Kyle Bartman.  His girlfriend Miriam Nunez.  Lifelong friends Steve DeSousa & Brian Skepton & his wife of 36 years, Sharon Bartman.

Services will be private.  Heartfelt thanks to Nicos for doing his part to help John on his way to heaven and for compassionately guiding the boys through the process.
