Ronald J Barker, age 65, returned home August 19, 2013. Born March 25, 1948 in Ogden, Utah to Ross James and Hazel Mae Adams Barker.
Dad was always one to tease and looked for a joke in every situation. He was an avid bowler and loved eating as long as he didn't have to cook. Because Dad was hearing impaired, he was deeply involved with the deaf community. Dad lived in the Ogden area his whole life. He worked at the Defense Depot of Ogden as an auto body mechanic for over 20 years. He transferred to Hill AFB until his retirement where he then went back to work as a contractor for Hill.
He is survived by his children, Luis (Patricia), Kim Ross, Sheila Barker, Cheryl (Andrew) Borgstrom and Travis (Eden); grandchildren, Adam, Marissa, Jayden, Miriam, Quentin, Rachel and Emmett; siblings, William (Colleen), Clyde (Jaymie), and Lloyd (Shelly). Preceded in death by his parents.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, August 23, 2013, 11:00 am at the North Ogden East Stake Center, 950 East 2850 North, North Ogden, Utah.
