I have good memories of Barney.His sense of humor and helping me cook a couple of Thanksgiving dinners. He was always a good brother-in-law to me.

I am sorry to hear of Barney's passing - he was a good friend to me in the telephone business, and we shared many good memories of Mid-Rivers and Canby Telephone Co's. I remember most his sense of humor and dancing ability. I hope you find strength and comfort in God's care.
