In addition to his father and mother, he leaves behind his wife, Robin Parsley Bargo; son, David Tilmon Bargo, Jr., and wife Whitney; daughter, Lori Danielle Bargo; three step-children: Nicole William Cook and husband Ross, Holly Rock and husband Peter, and Vincent Parsley; five grandchildren: Aiden Michael Nickolli England, Lucian Bargo, Mason Bargo, Zoe Bargo, and Sophie Bargo; two sisters: Phyllis Bargo Fox and husband Steve and Janet Ellison and husband Les. He is also survived by many other relatives and numerous friends, especially his body building family community. He was dearly loved and will be deeply missed.

Dear Family of David Bargo. I am so sorry for the great loss of a wonderful man. I remember when David hung around with my son, Paul Herrmann. He would come to my house on Alden Drive and swim and have lots of fun. He also came to visit me a couple of times after Paul had moved away. My Prayers to each of you for comfort and love.
