Condolence: Mr. Barker was my principal when I taught at CHHS from 1972 - 1988. He did the video for my wedding on Dec. 26, 1986, and we kept in touch through Christmas cards ever since. I am so sad to learn of his passing. He was always kind, fair, and encouraging. My prayers and condolences go out to the family, several of whom I taught.

Condolence: Sitting here, trying to find the words. I only had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Barker a handful of times. He was very interesting to talk to. It didn't take long to realize what an amazing man he was. Very interesting, kind. It didn't take long to know he was an awesome husband and father. He loved decorating the Christmas tree every year and it was phenomenal. He welcomed my two nephews into his family as if they were his own and helped them tremendously. The world is just not the same. Grateful for the times I did get to spend with him. Rest in Peace. Janice Cox
