Gary Tanner Bartlett age 20 of River Falls died Saturday, July 23, 2016 at his home. He was born the son to Gregory and Debra on July 8, 1996. Tanner grew up in Tracy CA until 2012 when he moved to Wisconsin at the age of 15. In Wisconsin his circle of friends grew as he matured into an adult. Tanner was regarded among the community as a warm, compassionate young man whom if you knew; you liked. He planned on enlisting to serve in the United States Coast Guard where he could extend his compassion to those truly in need. Unfortunately, deep depression crept into his life eventually extinguishing the flame of a promising young man. Depression took him from us, but he will always remain in our hearts, and our fond memories. Tanner is survived by both of his parents, Debra Bittner and Gregory Bartlett. Older brother Jenson Bartlett (Clarissa), older sister Andriana Bartlett, and grandparents Bobby and Kenneth Bittner and Rosetta Herricks. Many aunts, cousins and friends. Tanner was preceded in death by his Uncles, Gary Bittner, and Brian Bartlett, and Grandfather Joesph Herricks. A funeral service was held Wednesday, July 27, 2016 at 4:00 pm at the First Baptist Church (814 S Wasson Lane) in River Falls. Visitation was also Wednesday from 2-4 pm at the church. Arrangements are with Bakken-Young Funeral & Cremation Services of River Falls.
