Barton (Bart) Edgar McCorvey was born in Montgomery, Alabama on May 26, 1965 and went to be with Our Lord and Savior on October 21, 2022. Bart fought the toughest battle of his life against Multiple Myeloma for 2 1/2 years and finished his last race well.(2 Timothy 4:7)
Bart was a storyteller and if he could get you to laugh (which was easy) his face would light up with a genuine smile and he would carry the story on longer, maybe tell it twice! He loved his Alabama roots and enjoyed a carefree childhood with an extended family, pets, ocean fishing, water and snow skiing, hunting and playing football.
As a young adult, Bart faced a life changing choice: Dad would pay off back rent if Bart joined the U.S. Army. He chose the latter and reminded his children that this experience changed his life and helped him become a man. When he returned from Germany, against the odds, Bart convinced the Dean that he could earn his Bachelors degree at Florida State in Accounting and he did. Bart moved to San Clemente in 1994, worked at accounting firms, enjoyed playing guitar and fell in love with California weather but remained a Florida State football fan!
Bart and Laura married in 2003. The McCorvey family blossomed raising sons: Samuel, Daniel and Ethan. Bart was the spiritual leader often reminding us all that God was the center of our lives and if we follow Him, our paths will be straight. Bart felt that Pacific Coast Church was family and outside of church enjoyed serving in food distribution ministries and a playground build for immigrants in Spain.
Bart McCorvey loved his family and enjoyed every part of being his sons’ biggest fan. Countless miles were driven across the state of California for hundreds of soccer games, most recently in his favorite Ford Bronco. He loved table talk about soccer games, and encouraging his boys to achieve their personal goals. Bart loved reminiscing about family trips; he felt they brought the family closer together. He loved alternative rock and as a song writer, guitarist and singer recorded 3 CD’s.He enjoyed walks on the beach trail, setting benchmarks at the gym, cooking, especially in his outdoor pizza oven, watching the Seminoles win and more recently completed his custom set of TaylorMade golf clubs to improve his golf game.
A lifelong learner, Bart most recently was accepted into Villanova University’s Master’s program in Taxation law and was proud to finish his first class with an 87%!
Bart McCorvey’s professional accomplishments: US Army Veteran Honorable Discharge.
