Trent Bartz was one hell of an American. He was full of life, charismatic and passionate about the people, places, and things he loved so much. While Trent was the epitome of integrity and honor, he also struggled silently with many demons that eventually became too much for him to bear. On August 19, 2015, at the young age of 20, Trent made the decision to end his life.
Trent was an active member of the community and gave “his all” in everything he did. Awarded posthumously, one of his greatest accomplishments was being promoted to Corporal in the 203rd Military Intelligence Battalion of the United States Army. He was known for his passion for this country and devotion to the meaning behind being an American. He will always be remembered for the gifts he continually gave to those who had the pleasure of crossing his path. Though Trent’s story ended much too soon, the pages are still being written by those who loved him the most.
Amidst tragedy, hope prevailed in the creation of Bartz Brigade the TRENT BARTZ Foundation. In an effort to commemorate Trent’s life and help others avoid similar tragedies, loved ones came together and The Bartz Brigade was born. Our mission is to partner with various community organizations to coordinate the raising of funds to support the education, prevention and awareness of suicide – with a focus on adolescents, young adults and those serving in our Military.
Bartz Brigade the TRENT BARTZ Foundation is a non-profit that supports the education, prevention and awareness of suicide with a focus on school aged children, young adults and those serving in our Military.
