  1. Keith ,Diane and family -Ron and I send our condolences during g this difficult time. Keep the good memories close to your heart🙏

  2. Mr B. Was the coolest dad when we were kids – always joke to tell and a grin when he disapproved.
    Always had the baddest cars on the block. Truly one of a kind and will be missed.

  3. Tom and I send our condolences at such a difficult time.
    The family is in our thoughts and prayers.

  4. My sincere condolences to the Barker family. I have such great childhood memories at the Barker house. Mr. Barker was often shining up his corvette. He was a great man with great taste in cars. ❤️

  5. Thanks for the memories Chuck. You were always patient and willing to help. Your smile was broad and chuckle unforgettable. You always made the best late night snacks or drove us down by the lake for a “red hot or sausage sandwich”.

    Feeling blessed,
    Jack and Margaret

  6. Sending my sincerest sympathies and prayers to your family.

    Mr Barker was always so good to me. I so enjoyed our conversations.

    Whenever I was at my Grandparents house, I would always end up next door talking with him. It didn’t matter if Keith or Beth were home or not, I just liked talking with him. Sometimes I pulled into his driveway before theirs.

    I’m sure I put him behind on his Saturday yard work many times, but he was always up for some conversation. Mostly sports, but it could have been whatever.

    Great memories of a great man!

  7. To all the Barkers: Please know you are in my prayers at this very sad time. I know Chuck has been welcomed into heaven by so many family members who have gone before him. He was a very special member of our extended family and always made me feel very special when I was able to visit!🥰
