  1. Pastor Dartt went heaven on November 1, 2012. He was 13 days shy of his 87th birthday. I had the privileged to attend the funeral Monday November 5, 2012. Pastor Dartt and his wife Pat celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on January 12, 2012. You view the obituary at www.cottenfuneralhome.com This is what i posted on Facebook and the family had it read during the funeral. I know the family will not mind me posting here on this forum. This past week America lost one of their heroes who fought for our freedom today. This past week we lost a great man of God who influenced thousands of people for the cause of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This past week we lost a preacher who preached the Word of God without apologies. He preached the Word of God whether it was convenient or not; rebuke, correct, and encourage with great patience and teaching (2 Tim. 4:2). Pastor Dartt was my first pastor who made an impact on my life as a youth growing up in church. Pastor Dartt was there for our family when my father was killed. He preached a funeral message in zero degree temperatures as hundreds of NY State corrections officers were standing outside in the parking lot. Pastor Dartt became a father figure to me and gave advice about my personal hygiene. I could go to Pastor Dartt for advice even though it was not what I wanted to hear but it was what I needed to hear. I will always remember Pastor Dartt’s prayer ministry. He was a praying man who walked around the parking lot in the spring and summer and the auditorium during the fall and winter. He believed in prayer and was always talking to His Heavenly Father. Pastor Dartt made a great impact on my life to which I am in debt to him because of his love and compassion for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Navy Cross Awarded for actions during the World War II The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Navy Cross to Private Clifford Ronald Dartt (MCSN: 941764), United States Marine Corps Reserve, for extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty while serving as a Browning Automatic Rifleman of Company G, Second Battalion, Fifth Marines, FIRST Marine Division, in action against enemy Japanese forces on Peleliu, Palau Islands, on 9 October 1944. Courageously working his way up the side of a steep enemy-held hill, Private Dartt succeeded in reaching the top of this strong fortification before any of his comrades and, immediately engaging twenty of the Japanese who were entrenched on the reverse slope, fired his weapon until an intense automatic barrage wounded him and knocked him twenty yards down the side of the ridge. Although severely burned when another bullet exploded a phosphorus grenade on his belt and ignited the ammunition pouch, he bravely proceeded a second time to the top of the ridge and, finding that a hostile bullet had jammed his weapon, tirelessly continued in his attempt to repair the gun until wounded a second time. His outstanding courage, devotion to duty and valiant perseverance were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service. General Orders: SPOT AWARD, Fleet Marine Force Pacific: Serial 00436 Action Date: October 9, 1944 Service: Marine Corps Rank: Private Company: Company G Battalion: 2d Battalion Regiment: 5th Marines Division: 1st Marine Division
