Obituary

Bobby Marvin Barton was born on June 17, 1935 in Raglan, Kentucky to George and Evelyn Barton.  His childhood was spent largely in Michigan with his brother Les, his mom and dad and his Grandma Bass, settling in Jackson.  Bobby graduated from Jackson High School and worked for Goodyear for many years. Work-life never defined him, even when he worked three jobs at a time as he pursued a plumbing career, eventually owning his own company – Barton Plumbing and Heating. He was a fantastic father to his six children – Ron, Marsha, Bernie, Jeff, Julia and Howard and made sure the blended family was his priority.  He always made time to play catch, coach little league or teach his kids to fetch the clay pigeons his “friends” missed while shooting skeet in the backyard.

Bobby was an avid sportsman, hunter and fisherman, taking many excursions in search of adventure locally and throughout the country. He and his wife, Marilyn, were married 58 years and shared a love of travel, even driving to Alaska along with a number of annual summer vacations with their six children.  There was never a dull moment when the Barton Family arrived at the campsites!

Bobby is survived by wife Marilyn, six children, 13 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents, George and Evelyn Barton, his brother, Les Barton and his grandson, Alecs Barton. One of Bobby’s wishes is to be cremated with little fanfare, so no formal service is planned.  

Bobby suffered from Parkinson’s Disease later in his life, and in lieu of flowers, the family is suggesting those who wish to donate can do so to the American Parkinson’s Disease Association in his name.  Information regarding the APDA can be found on their website at  www.apdaparkinson.org.
