BARTON, Robert Frederick

Robert Frederick Barton died peacefully in Westlock hospital on March 29, 2022, at age 92, after fighting cancer. He was the eldest son of Leonard and Ada Barton. He leaves to mourn him his sisters Isabel Andrews, Jean, and brother Bill as well as one niece Leann Rurka-Zahara (Blair) and four nephews: Leonard Andrews (Linda), Don Andrews, Dale Andrews and Dwayne Rurka (Renee). Bob farmed with his parents at the farm in Stewartfield. When his parents died, he and his brother continued with the family farm until retirement to Westlock. He was a farmer through and through. Bob lived a quiet dignified life - he was always willing to help his neighbours - often called on to assist people at the United Church cemetery at Mosside. His thoughtful counsel was appreciated by his family. He lived a long life, and his suffering has now ended. We will miss our dear Uncle Bob but will hold him in our memories. We thank God for his presence in our lives. The family would also like to extend our thanks to Pembina Lodge in Westlock for their good care for Bob.
