Barker, Mary Louise Moore - San Angelo  
Mary Louise Moore Barker San Angelo Mary Louise Moore Barker passed away on Aug. 23, 2016, after living with Alzheimer's for several years. She was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend to many. Many of her acquaintances may not have realized that she was dealing with Alzheimer's because she would still greet them with a big smile and hello even though she may not realize who they were. Of course, she had a kind heart for everyone during her entire life. The funeral service will be at 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 26, in Harper Funeral Home chapel, 2606 Southland Blvd., San Angelo, Texas, with Tommy King officiating. Interment will follow in Lawnhaven Memorial Gardens. The family will receive friends from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25, at Harper Funeral Home. Mary was born in Millersview, Texas, on Dec. 3, 1927, the only child of Jim Moore and Ada Ruth Woodress Moore. She married Wayne Eudell Barker, the love of her life, on June 12, 1944, while he was serving in the United States Army. They resided in Millersview after he returned from active duty, before moving to San Angelo in 1956. Mary cried when they moved from Millersview to the big city. Years later, Eudell would tease her that they needed to move back to Millersview, and she cried at that thought as well. While living in San Angelo, Mary worked for the Yellow Page division of GTE for over 25 years and made many great friends there. Mary is survived by two daughters, Sharon Barker Marsden, her husband, LeeRoy Marsden and three granddaughters, Missy Marsden LaBarge and her husband, Shane LaBarge, Amy Marsden Sims and her husband, Shaughn Sims, Heather Marsden and her husband, Rob Polston, and Deborah Barker Pilmer, her husband, Gordon Pilmer and grandson Jonathan Pilmer and his wife, Mary Katherine Pilmer.

(Chuck) Shore Jr., Jim Shore, Zane Cummings and Mark Davis. Special thanks to Melissa Gomez, Irene DeLeon, Sylvia Tenorio and Debbie Luna, who cared for Mary while she stayed at home, the loving staff of The Springs as well as Dr. Vayden Stanley and the caring staff of Kindred Hospice.

Services are under the direction of Shaffer Funeral Home/Sherwood Way. David was born March 11, 1935, to Arthur and Nancy Bryant in Goldthwaite, Texas. When the bowling industry introduced the A1 Electric automatic pinsetters, in the early 1960s, David enrolled and went to Brunswick training school in California, completing his certification for Brunswick. He began working at Holiday Bowl in Albuquerque, New Mexico and installing their machines as it was being built. There he was head machine mechanic and lane maintenance for 20-plus years. In addition, he was contracted for the bowling lanes on Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, New Mexico and contracted to all indian reservation bowling centers in the state of New Mexico and Arizona, on call 24-7. In 2011 he visited Holiday Bowl in Albuquerque with his son and daughter. When the desk clerk, who knew his name but had never met him, found out that the "legendary Dave Bryant" was in house, he proceeded to announce on the intercom to the mechanics in the back that "Dave Bryant, the legend mechanic" was present, then also announced throughout the whole bowling alley introducing him to everyone in there as "the most legendary bowling machine mechanic there'd ever been." David spent the rest of his retirement in San Angelo, Texas. He loved bowling, horse racing, taking his kids fishing and camping throughout New Mexico as well as his red 1956, Ford which he called "Hog." Most of all he loved his family, his children, his grandchildren. Most importantly he loved the Lord, who became his Savior, on his knees in the family living room in 1972, while watching a Billy Graham Crusade. He was preceded in death by his parents, three sisters and one brother. David leaves his wife of 46 years, Barbara Clay Bryant; son Gary Ross Bryant; his daughters, Marlee Robin Mahon and son-in-law Chad and Patty Lynn and son-in-law Bill Cradick; son Tommy Wayne Sharp and daughter-in-law Beth; and sons, David Royce Bryant and Eddie Randall Bryant; one brother, Jimmy Bryant and wife Ann; grandchildren Hailie Moore, Annestasia Bryant, Danielle Bryant, Matthew Bryant, Brady Willis, Jayton Willis, Michael Willis, Daryell Pryor, Jaclyn Summer Grimsley, Amber Peck, Keturah Ford, Hannah and Bekah Sharp, Joshua Bryant, Kristy Bryant and Alicia Bryant; great-grandchildren Ava, Ashlynn, Axton, Kolton, Sophia, Bodie, Taylor, Mikey, Gunner, Castina, Jocylynn, Addie and Aiden; honorable mention Charity Johnson-Romero, Kelley Offutt, Kim Offutt-Blanton, Stacy Carroll, Casey Moore and David Willis, who were all like children of his own.
