    I grew up in Sioux City & belonged to the same church as Bart, Blessed Sacrament. I didn’t see him often because I was younger (ha). Then we met up in the hospital room when our sons were born I shared the hospital room with Irene For several days and got reacquainted. Our sons became good friends and hung out through high school and college. I remember when they threw a 16th birthday for Bart Junior and our son Ryan. It was a wonderful party and Bart Sr. was such a welcoming host.. Of course, he cooked some wonderful Iowa taverns & made sure throughout the night everyone had their fill. Our condolences to the Braunger family. Larry and Joanna Lindberg
