Barton (Bart) McFall passed away at age 90 on June 25, 2022. He was born in Louisville, TN on September 16, 1931, to his parents, King Ballard Bart Adam McFall Sr., and Hattie Louise Fisher. He attended Farragut High School, and in August 1950, he joined the United States Marine Corps, where he served in the Korean War with the 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st Marine Division. He was wounded in action in Korea and was a Purple Heart recipient, receiving his honorable discharge in April of 1952. In September of 1952, Bart married his wife of 69 loving years, Barbara Kirby. Together they had four daughters, Carol, Donna Lynn (deceased), Cheryl, and Kathy. He was a very proud family man to his 4 children, 8 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and 4 great-great-grandchildren. After his service in the USMC, Bart spent his career as a long-haul truck driver with Kroger for 30 accident-free years with over three million safe miles. He was an active member of the Georgia Freemasons for 50 years, serving as the Past Master of Forest Park #399 and Past Master of Daylite Lodge #125. He also served as the Worthy Patron of the Order of the Eastern Star, Chapter #290 and District Grand Deputy of the OES District 3. He was an avid fisherman and hunter and enjoyed spending time in the mountains of his home state of Tennessee, eventually moving back full-time in 2018. For the last four years, Bart, Barbara, and Bebe (their cat) have called Sundown RV Resort their home. Above all else, Bart was a fiercely loyal servant of the Lord. He was an active member of Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Georgia for many years and, until his passing, a member of Pleasant View Baptist Church in Alcoa, TN. Condolences may be made at www.maryvillememorialfuneralhome.com.
