Gabriel Barton Carruth

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden, unexpected death of Gabriel “Bart” Barton Carruth of Hayden Lake, Idaho, and Rancho Mirage, Calif.

Born in Louisville, Ky., on July 3, 1958, Bart was the second of three children born to Farrah Edgar Carruth and Jean Allen Taylor Carruth. Bart grew up in Kentucky, Ohio, and Fredonia, N.Y., southwest of Buffalo, where he attended Fredonia High School. After high school, Bart enrolled at Morehead State University in Kentucky. He studied business administration and later graduated with a B.S. in business and marketing from the State University of New York, Fredonia. Bart played baseball throughout college and afterward, and his love of the sport continued throughout his life.

Bart made his career in the biotech and pharmaceutical industry. He was a hard-working, respected and passionate advocate for breakthrough drugs and therapies to treat a variety of illnesses. It was at an industry meeting in Chicago that he met his wife, Nancy Decker, on her first day with the company. After dating for two years and maintaining a successful long-distance romance, they married in 2006 in Lizard Island, Australia. They made San Francisco their home until two years ago, when Nancy introduced Bart to Hayden Lake, where she had spent summers in high school and college. Bart loved Hayden Lake and they divided their time between the lake and Rancho Mirage. He enjoyed fishing, boating and spending time with friends around the lake.

Bart also loved music and playing his guitar. He was always a gifted athlete, and enjoyed playing baseball, golf, tennis, pickleball and bocce. He was an avid reader and there wasn’t anything he couldn’t build or repair.

Bart is survived by his beloved wife, Nancy; his daughter, Taylor; his son, Gabe; his sister, Isabelle (Brack); his brother, Tony (Lindy); nieces and nephews and close friends that he considered family. He was preceded in death by his parents.

Memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Aug 19, 2018, at the Hayden Lake Country Club, 2362 E. Bozanta Drive, Hayden Lake, Idaho. A reception will follow.

English Funeral Chapel has been entrusted with the arrangements. Please sign his online memorial at www.englishfuneralchapel.com.
