On September 3, 2019, IGBO lost one of its own. Bart MacMillan passed away after a valiant fight with cancer. IGBO’s Board of Directors were shocked and extremely saddened to hear of this, Bart was a incredible human being and a great friend to many, and he will be missed.
Bart was also the Regional Director of Pacific Northwest and a vital member of the Board of Directors of IGBO.
In Board meetings Bart was the quiet, gentle giant. He would listen intently as discussions were going on and very patiently offer his opinions and suggestions for the issue at hand. He had an amazing even hand in all that we did.
Our condolences go out to all of you that knew Bart and considered him a friend.
IGBO President Joey LeBlanc has appointed Tim Tkacik to fill Bart’s roll in the organization as Regional Director of the Pacific Northwest until the election in Seattle, WA 2020.
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else will ever fill.
