Nelson "Barney" August Bliss
Mille: I just found this and we are so sorry to hear of your loss. Barney was a special one of a kind. He was such a loving, caring and devoted man. We had a lot of special times together when we first meet. Julie Roper and I laugh a lot about the bowling trip to Riverton. What a wonderful trip and Barney took all of us women just in stride. He will surely be missed. God Bless you and your family.

I met Barney in Billings, Montana, for the first time many years ago. It was while working for Axelson and I had to make two or three trips into his area of operations. I loved the man from the first encounter. He was so jovial, so helpful, so full of life. Unfortunately, after that brief period of time, I saw him very infrequently but tried to stay in contact. After retirement, I lost contact, but never forgot Barney. Rest in pease my friend. My deepest sympathy to the family.

I was lookin forward to seeing Barney this summer at our Roundup High School get-together in Helena in August. Once we were reconnected with him, I think he heard from several classmates. I will do a page on him for our Class Memory Book. Please know that old friends are remembering him. You are in my prayers.
To Barney's family: I was very saddened to hear of Barney's death. I worked also worked at Natco/Cameron. I really enjoyed his crooked sense of humor and "take no crap" from corporate attitude! I only wish he could have enjoyed many, many more retirement years.
