BARTON, Larry B. Born 1/19/42, to Al and Flo Barton, died September 1, 2018. Never great at any one thing in particular. I have enjoyed many hobbies and have participated in a myriad of activities including: bowling, golf, tennis, fishing, flying, sailing, snorkeling, bicycling, RC Gliders, road rallying, guitar, piano, shooting, zumba, beach ball volleyball, pickleball, traveling by car and cruise-ship, dancing, and joke-telling. I took up square and round dancing with my longtime girlfriend, companion, and confidant, Genny Cyrus. I retired from the Post Office in 2007, where I was affectionately known as "Fartin' Barton" due to my uncanny ability to flatulate so loudly that it could be heard across the workroom floor. My words of wisdom for a happy relationship: find a hobby or activity that you both enjoy and do it frequently. I leave behind a brother, Neil, his wife Angeline, and their son, Sam; my sister, Brooke Rudio; a son, Aaron, his wife Jennifer, and their sons, Ryder and Wyatt; a daughter, Heather Anderson, and her husband Steve. A Celebration of Life is scheduled for Thursday, September 6, at Rona Community Church, 1082 Rona Parkway Dr, Fairborn, OH 45324. Mingling and chatting at 5pm, Memories/Roast at 6pm. Small bites at 7pm. Instead of flowers, a donation to The League for Animal Welfare, in Batavia, Ohio, would be appreciated, and tax-deductible.

With deepest sympathy on loss of your love one. May it bring comfort you to know that he will return to the days of his youthful vigor as promised at Job 33:25.

Larry and I along with a group of 5 or 6 other friends (Herbie, Bob, Norm, Mike, Ronnie and Jerry) planned one adventure after another during our high school years. We played a lot of gin rummy and poker, but most of our escapades have to remain secret to protect the guilty parties! Time and distance may have separated us, but we always called each other "friend." Thanks for the memories Larry. You will be missed.

I will always remember Larry's warm smile, even if sometimes he was smiling because he had just scored a point against you with his wicked serve in beachball volleyball. Many fond memories of our fun times at the YMCA!

So sorry to hear. We will miss you and all the good times we had dancing over the years. You were one of the best joke tellers I ever knew. Mike Myers/Lytha Miller....

We didn't know Larry long, but he was the heart of our dance club,
and a terrific guy. Hope he can spell Chechoslovakia as he said
in one of his jokes.
God Bless

Sorry to hear of Larry's passing, I would like to offer my sincere condolences to his family. Jeremiah 29:11, 12 assures us God is thinking thoughts of peace towards us, to give us a future and a hope, and that if we come and pray to Him, He will listen to us. In the days to come may you find comfort in that hope.
