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.

Funeral services will be held at 1 P.M. Tuesday, December 24, 2019, in the Hart Funeral Home Chapel with Danny England and Phyllis Bargo Fox officiating. Burial will follow in Corinth Cemetery with full  military honors by the American Legion Post 88 Honor Guard.

    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.
