Don " The Colonel" and his lovely wife,Mary were ny next door neighbors for 32 years. Mu mother always told me that " You can't put a price on a good friend or neighbor" They were both. The Colonel had a great sense of humot. I would ALWAYS salute him even if he was on his riding lawn mower and wait for him to return same. He jokingly told me that he liked me because I treated a commissioned officer with respect. My mother was also a dialysis patient. A real ordeal . Don was tough and handled it well. I used to put his paper on his porch.. he always appreciated those little things. Rest in Peace Col. Don.. that's an order sir!! Dr Ken Hatch Annapolis,MD.

I graduated from Arundel High School, and I remember one afternoon, leaving school and it was raining. Mr. Barger offered to walk down to my bus with me since he had an umbrella, which I took him up on. I always remembered that small act of kindness. I also remember when another administrator, Midgie Sledge would be approaching, and Mr. Barger would say "Here comes Sister Sledge!" I had to laugh at that. He was a decent man. Rest in Peace, Mr. Barger, and enjoy being in heaven.

The Colonel and I had frequent exchanges during my Senior year at Arundel (Class of '84). I think he enjoyed them as much as I did...and I still tell stories about them.

Thank you, Col. Barger, for caring.

Thank you all so much for your love and memories. It means so much to his family. Dad truly was a "brick", solid in what he undertook. He set his heart to encourage others, treating others the way he would want to be treated. I believe the deep ability he possessed to encourage was a gift from his God, as was his care in teaching. These two gifts strengthened each other, so too speak, and came out as blessings for those he served.

Some of my favorite memories begin with "Remember that time the Colonel....." and it always ended with him busting me for something...I smile remembering how fair he was and how much he affected my actions as I moved through life. Those who got to know him even for a short stop on the way were very lucky.

WOW....that about sums it up! I only had him in my life for a short time. But reading all these condolences have given me a bigger picture of the fine human being the Colonel was and how much he meant to so many peoply. What a great legacy he leaves! I am in awe.

I too am an alum of Arundel and will always remember Col. Barger patrolling the parking lot. He got great satisfaction by keeping us all headed in the right direction. Kind and fair are perfect words to describe him. RIP Colonel. Condolences to his family.

Thank you Mr. Barger for all you taught and lessons learned. Your encouragement and guidance inspired me to earn a dual degree in Elementary Education and Special Education as well as Masters Degree in School Administration. You were and still will be an inspiration to all. God's Peace.

I remember Col. Barger fondly while attending Arundel (class of 86). I picture him standing in the parking lot checking for parking stickers as we drove in. He will be missed by many. RIP Col. Barger.
