    Linda and family I’m sorry for your great loss he was a great man that I’m proud to call a friend and great role model .I’m going to miss him. My thoughts and prayers.

    Linda and Family; words cannot express our feelings and sadness today. We offer our heartfelt sympathies and condolences, and we pray that you find comfort in the Lord in this difficult time. It is times like these that we wish we lived closer to friends and family. You and yours are in our thoughts and prayers.

    To Tim’s family, I’d like to share a few things to hopefully make your day a little better in this time of great loss.
    Standing in the field in front of your house, a bunch of us kids scattered all over and Tim’s dad hitting us high fly balls. Pete would point at us and then hit these towering fly ball, allot of the times we wouldn’t have to move, maybe one step. My dad said Pete Barron was the best baseball player he ever saw.

    Tim Jim Bob and my self playing two on two baseball and football in your fields and yard. It was always Tim and Bob, oldest and youngest against Jim and I. Beleve it or not, we had a pole vault pit somewhere by where the Potato warehouse is, we would go into the woods and cut a tree down, that was our pole. I think the highest we ever went was 7 feet but we thought we were at the Olympic trials. Like I said at my dad’s funeral, where did the time go.

    Lastly, and no one else knows this, not even you, Jerimah. Tim and I were standing in the American Legion at a wedding reception and Tim asked me who that pretty girl was standing over there. I told him that it was Linda Porath, she was a year older than me at Perkins High School. He said I’m going to ask her to dance.

    44 years, 7 kids, 18 grandchildren, I’d say he asked the right girl.
    Rest in peace Tim, we’ll see you on the other side, just not too soon.


    TO THE FAMILY OF TIM BARRON Tim just did our new garage roof last fall. We are sorry to hear that he has passed away this week and you surely have our sincere sympathy. We did not hear about it until now, and it was 10 minutes after the visitation ended. You will be in our thoughts.

    Linda,Please accept my sympathies on the death of Tim. I was surprised when my sister called and told me that he had passed. I recall sitting with your three oldest children, Tim, Chris and Shannon when they were youngsters. My sympathies to them and your other children also. God Bless.

    Linda and family, you are all in our thoughts and prayers. Tim and I graduated together in “63”. I was so sad when I recently heard Tim was so ill and passed away a few days later. He was a quiet, sweet, gentel, guy. The world needs more like Tim Barron! R.I.P., Tim.
