In Loving Memory of Jim Merl Barr — 1937-2018

Jim Barr passed away Saturday March 17, 2018 with his wife by his side.  He was 81 years old.

Jim was a former employee of KY Ignition and then retired after 25 years of service with Standard Gravure. Mr. Barr was a former parishioner of St. Denis Catholic Church and a current parishioner of Incarnation Church.

The world has lost a great man. Jim was our everything. He loved the lake, boating, working on cars, fixing anything and everything and browsing the Peddlers Mall to find his treasurers of tools and watches. He loved his family unconditionally. We will all miss the wisdom and knowledge Jim Barr so graciously imparted to anyone willing to listen.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Robert Barr and his sister, Bernice Basham.  Jim is survived by his loving wife of 59 years Madeleine Fackler Barr; son, Gary Barr (Jenny); daughters, Susan Satram (Pepe) and Nancy Downs (Mike); sister, Thelma Schnell; grandchildren Shannon, Hollie, Eric, Chris, Christian, Kinnidi, Amber, Brooklynn, Logan, Ryan, Melanie; great grandchildren, Deseray, Carter, Jameson, Luke, Alec, Tinley, Myles and Lydia.

His Mass of Resurrection was at 11:00 a.m. Friday March 23, 2018 at Incarnation Catholic Church, 2229 Lowers Hunters Trace.
