Bart FenolioHerbert “Bart” Fenolio - Obituary

Resident of San Marcos, CA

May 24, 1940-Dec. 16, 2010

Bart spent Christmas with Jesus. He came home from the hospital to his family with Hospice on
December 16th, 2010, and passed away that evening with peace and joy. His wife of 46 years,
Carol “Heidi” Fenolio, his daughter Joelle Grove & her husband Brian, and his son Dante & his
wife Beth, brother-in-law Rick Hyde & wife Diane surrounded him with love as well as friends
and grandchildren.

He grew up in San Jose and Fall River Mills. He graduated from SJSU and married the love of
his life, Heidi, in 1964. He & his sister, Brenda Albrecht, opened the first Dolphin Aquarium in
1965 which was a huge success and built into the Dolphin Pet Village, which is still owned today
by Brenda. Bart developed Dolphin Design, Inc, and began to custom design aquariums for
hospitals, doctors offices, and businesses in the Santa Clara valley. His love of meeting new
people all the time and his love of the business made Bart so happy. His last project before
selling his business was the Cupertino City Library salt water aquarium. He retired and moved
to San Diego with Heidi to be close to new grandchildren.

Bart was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in August, 2009, after being misdiagnosed with ALS.
He fought this horrific disease with strength and grace.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, 01/29/2011 at 12:00pm at Calvary Chapel San
Jose, 1175 Hillsdale Avenue, San Jose, Ca 95118. A dessert reception will follow the service.

We have asked that in lieu of flowers for donations be made to support Lyme Disease research.
Lyme Disease is a controversial and devastating disease and very few organizations are able
to do research. The family asks that donations be made in Bart’s name to: NRFTD (National
Research Fund for Tick Borne Disease) You can donate online and make the donation in
Bart’s name under the “comments” box at:
