Obituary for John Emmett Bartlett

Commander John Emmett Bartlett, of Smyrna, Georgia, was received in Heaven November 4th, 2017. John was born on July 13, 1949 to his parents, Willie Maude Watson and Samuel Emmett Bartlett.

After graduating from Campbell High School in 1967, John proudly served in the United States Air Force. In 1970 John began his distinguished career with Cobb County Police Department, where he retired as Precinct Commander of Cobb County Police on January 1st, 2001. During his career, he had many achievements, including serving as Precinct Commander over four if not all five of the Precincts. He was instrumental in facilitating the conversion of the 911 Center merger of Cobb and Marietta emergency services as well as the training of the civilian staff that now operates the 911 center. He helped open multiple stations during his career and was highly regarded among his colleagues.

John’s career was extremely important to him; however, nothing held a candle to the love that he had for his family. John married his high school sweetheart Debbie on June 28th, 1969. His parents and sister Sandra Bartlett Giancola preceded John in death. John is survived by his wife Debbie, daughter Michelle (Jeff White), Mike (Shannon) Bartlett, Heather (Casey) Jones, Brian (Tracey) Bartlett and Jenny (Barry) Bennett. John had a total of 12 grandchildren: Madison White, Brittney and Bailey Bartlett, Emily, Parker, Harrison, Lily and Gage Jones, Garrison, Sam, and Judson Bartlett and Melanie Bennett. He also has two brothers: Dan Bartlett of Smyrna and David (Rhonda) Bartlett of Atlanta, Georgia and several nieces and nephews and all of his Brothers and Sisters in Blue.

A funeral service to celebrate John’s life will be held 1 P.M. Wednesday, November 8, 2017, in the chapel of Carmichael Funeral Home, 2950 King Street, Smyrna, Georgia. Burial will follow at Georgia Memorial Park in Marietta, Georgia. The family will receive friends on Tuesday, November 7, 2017, from 4 P.M. until 8 P.M. at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers:
