John K. Barrett Obituary
Barrett, John K.
passed away on March 17, 2016 at home in the loving care of his wife. John was born on February 19, 1953 to Dorothy B. and John P. Barrett in Racine, Wisconsin. John attended Ripon College where he studied history and philosophy, and devoted his career to the High Tech recruitment field. However, his true passion was his family. He married the love of his life Karen I. Barrett on July 26, 1990 in Indianapolis, IN. He leaves behind his loving wife of nearly 26 years; his daughters Jennifer J. Keim (George) and Georgeanne K. Barrett (Robert); and son, Jonathan R. Kemp (Karina); as well as granddaughters Lucy, Kylie and Peyton. John also is survived by his father John P. "Jack" Barrett; and sisters Kay Barrett and Suzanne B. Gilpin; as well as other nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles. He was preceded in death by his mother Dorothy, as well as his brother-in-law Lane Gilpin. John was an avid sports car enthusiast and a former member of the Scottsdale Corvette Club. He greatly enjoyed music, tennis and sailing. Most of all, he was dearly loved by everyone who knew him and will be sorely missed. A Celebration of Life will be held to celebrate John at 5:00 p.m. on Sat., April 16 at the Belmont Neighborhood Community Center in Scottsdale. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials to Women Against Multiple Sclerosis in Phoenix, AZ or the of Arizona.
