David Morley Barrett Obituary

David Morley Barrett, 41, of Narberth, Pa., passed away at home surrounded by family on Nov. 16, 2020. He fearlessly fought a four-year battle with colorectal cancer. David was born in Scranton, Pa., to Sharon (Morris) and David Barrett. He was a graduate of North Pocono High School and Pennsylvania State University.

David was a real estate agent with Berkshire Hathaway, Ardmore, Pa. He was the president of the Friends of Wynnewood Valley, an organization devoted to the beautification of local parks through indigenous plants. David was a prolific writer who composed plays, short stories and published poetry.

David was an incredible father to his twin daughters, the joys of his life. He taught them to approach life with an open and curious mind and a positive perspective. David was a devoted son and loyal brother. As an uncle he was the leader of the best fun outings and get-togethers with his niece and nephews and his own children. David's lively spirit and wit captured every room he entered. He will also be missed by his constant companion Elsa, a German short-haired pointer.

He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Jean and Arthur Morris and Marion and Morley Barrett.

He is survived by his daughters, Sadie and Ophelia Barrett; his mother and father; sister, Jeannine McKnight; niece, Delilah McKnight; nephews, Rhys and David McKnight; and his partner, Caroline Gamse.

David was interred at West Laurel Hill Cemetery, 215 Belmont Ave., Bala Cynwyd, Pa., on Saturday, Nov. 21, 2020.

A celebration of life will take place on Saturday, Nov. 28, at 11 a.m. at the United Baptist Church at 213 S. Main Ave., Scranton.

Charitable contributions can be made in David's honor to Friends of Wynnewood Valley through Bryn Mawr Trust, 801 Lancaster Ave., Bryn Mawr, PA 19010.
