Barth enjoyed laughing and had a real good sense of humor. He loved to talk about the funny things that happened when going to Rochester Junior High and High School. I will miss his laugh and watching him socialize with family and friends. He lioved to work and took great pride in whatever skill he was doing from being a master craftsman in concrete at work or keeping the yard up at home. I already miss him and bringing him the Orlando and Kissimmee Florida newspaper when visiting Rochester. Wished you could of hung around to watch your daughters, Jane and Jada graduate, marry, and become a Grandfather. God bless you and your families. Love, Candi
