Brock Robert Barto

June 17, 1990 — June 29, 2019

Brock Robert Barto, 29 years old, died June 29, 2019, in a sky diving accident. He was born and raised in Summit County and graduated from Summit High School where he excelled in lacrosse. He attended Essex Community College where he continued to play lacrosse on a junior college champion team. Brock was a gregarious, outgoing light that shined in many people’s lives. With a massive heart filled with compassion for others, he thrived in outdoor activities. An avid snowboarder, Brock took his love for speed from the mountain to the sky. He had over 600 jumps from around the country. Brock worked for Vail Resorts on Peak 8 as a ski valet greeting people with his magnetic smile and ensuring them an optimal experience. He will be dearly missed by his family! Billy Barto, BrieAnna Barto (siblings) Bob, Karen Barto (parents) and all who had the pleasure to cross his path.

A celebration of life will be held at Beaver Run on Sunday, July 7, from 4–6 p.m. All who endured his antics are welcome!

Remember Brock by honoring the motto he strived to live by “Do more of what makes you happy!”
