April 17, 1953 – January 25, 2023
After a long hard battle with liver disease, Don passed away peacefully with his family by his side.
He is predeceased by his parents Daniel & Geraldine Bartlett, sister Linda Bartlett, sister Kathy Seger.
He is survived by his wife Dawne, daughters Christine (Scott) Pickles, Cynthia (Robert) Guck, Catherine Bartlett, and stepson Greg Terranova.

Don worked for Crosman Corporation as a Machinist for 38 years before he retired in 2016. In his spare time Don was a dedicated member of the Farmington Volunteer Fire Department. As a life member he loved to drive the fire trucks, help with the annual carnival, as well as the chicken BBQs, and fire prevention week. He was lovingly known in the fire department as “Papa Smurf”. The past year he became a social member as his illness prevented him from being an active member. He still loved being involved no matter what. He listened to the calls, helped run the radio room, and loved his Friday morning coffee and donuts with the other social members. He will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
There will be a celebration of life held for Don on Wednesday February 1st at Farmington Fire Station #2 from 4-6. All are welcome. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his name to the Farmington Volunteer Fire Department, P.O. Box 25117, Farmington NY 14425.
