Obituary

Barty Little Angel Arnold Fenimore of Berthoud, Colorado born on November 24,1931 passed away on September 3, 2019 at the age of 87. Barty was a beloved father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. Barty was a Korean War Veteran who served in the United States Army from 1952 – 1954 and an additional six years in the United States Army Reserve. Barty owned his own brick laying business for may years, Fenimore Masonry. He served on boards including the Jefferson County Little League and The Colorado Thoroughbred Breeders Association. For 29 years Barty officiated basketball. Barty was a skilled farmer who dedicated his professional and personal life to the care and well-being of thoroughbred horses. Barty spent his teenage years working with the United States Calvary to train wild horses and mules, he continued this passion throughout his entire adult life, training and caring for hundreds of thoroughbred horses over the course of seven decades.
