My condolences to the Heffner clan. I worked with Barrie at PennDOT, and he was always a delightful person and I enjoyed when he would stop by to converse with me. Rest well Barrie.

We have so many memories of time spent with Barrie and Nancy. Barrie´s stories, his humor and playing cards- then sports to watch while sharing some yummy food! Barrie you are forever in our hearts! You have been a gift to us and our neighborhood. We miss you! RIP dear friend!
