Bart Don Aagard

Bart Don Aagard passed away from natural causes on June 17, 2024. He was born on June 6, 1943 in Provo, Utah to Sonne Lee and Fern Aleta Tunbridge Aagard. He was the second of 5 children and the only boy which helped him grow into the great man he became. He spent the majority of his life in Levan where he grew to love farming, hunting, riding his horse, and doing all he could to be self-sufficient. 

Bart married Nancy Rasmussen on July 23, 1964 in Levan Utah and later sealed in the Manti, Utah Temple. Bart and Nancy built their home and life around their farm in Levan and became the proud parents of 7 children. Life on a farm is never easy, but Bart put his heart into making the farm a place where children (both his and those who came to visit or spend time in daycare he and Nancy provided) could benefit from the lessons he/they taught. 

Bart graduated from Juab High school in Nephi. He worked several jobs in his life, including working at NRP, which paid the bills; however he was never happier than when he was working outdoors and building his farm and providing for his family. Bart was a hard worker and found ways to instill his work ethic to his children, living by the motto he often quipped, “Work is a man’s best friend.” 

Bart had a fun personality and loved to tell stories which almost always included an outdoor adventure in which he played a major part. One would have to really know him if you were to discern whether the story was true or not and in the end, even he began to believe some of those stories were true. It was through his fun nature that he showed his children and those he cared for about his love for them.

Bart is preceded in death by his parents, wife, daughter Rose (Isaac) Ercanbrack, and a sister who passed away at birth. 

He is survived by his children, Carma (David) Boswell of Centerville; Dick (Charlinn) Aagard of Tooele; Ben (Jeana) Aagard of Katy, Texas; Andrew (Lucy) Aagard of Provo; Sunny (Jon) Robbins of Donnellson, Iowa; Rebecca Aagard of Fort Madison, Iowa; 3 sisters: Leora Ivie, Sheila (Carl) Howard, and Nanette Barrett; 21 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren.

The last 5 years of his life were spent in Spanish Fork, Utah. A special thank you to the wonderful staff at Legacy House for their tender care and devoted service. Bart always had a positive thing to say about the friends he made there.
