Bart and former wife Kendall Baccam welcomed three children into the world: Trevor Baugh, 24, of Churdan; Torey Baugh (fiance Garrett Rysavy), of Jefferson; and Taryn Baugh, 16, of Scranton.
Bart was an extremely talented artist with a passion for pinstriping Harleys and hot rods.
His biggest passion was his children. His life motto was, “I solely live for my babies.” Bart was known for his smile, crazy laugh, quick wit, the love for his family, his drive to never live in fear, his golden heart, amazingly blunt attitude and was very well-known for his storytelling skills.
He was preceded in death by his father, Sammy Baugh; stepfather Todd Mount; his grandparents, Boyd and Effie Baugh; his grandfather, Edward Geisler Jr.; and baby brother Brett Baugh.
Bart is survived by his three children: Trevor, Torey and Taryn Baugh; his mother and stepfather, Anne and Joe Minnehan, of Churdan; his grandmother, Mary Geisler, of Churdan; a sister, Brandi McIntosh, of Ankeny; a brother, Jerad Mount, of Windsor Heights; nephews Eastyn, Emersyn and Eyan McIntosh; many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Bart is also survived by his girlfriend, Jessica Wagemann, of Churdan, and so many wonderful friends.
