The South African keeper was just a week away from celebrating his 47th birthday when he passed away.
After enjoying spells around the country, Bartman has earned a number of admirers. So, we've found many emotional Tweets on the PSL legend, as well as those paying respect to the Bartman family.
Very sad news of Arthur Bartman's passing. Great all-round gentleman who defied the odds when he showed us that age ain't nothing but a number & that a good character takes you further.
