Barney was a good friend and we shared a membership with the Lake Shore Men's Club. He was always one of the first to arrive Mondays (pre Covid) despite the fact he came the farthest and he was last to leave. He was an insightful listener and would share with us his thoughts on the topic presented that morning. I always enjoyed hearing his point of view as it showed his deep interest in any area covered whether it was politics, the middle east, climate control, Jack Benny he was lisstening and thinking. I know he cared a great deal about his family of which he was very proud. We will miss him and will always remember his enthusiasm and thoughts.

How lucky you were to have such a wonderful guy as your dad, grandfather, role model and mentor for 91 years. He “served”every one in business but he served his family the most. The Bakers send condolences but we celebrate his incredible life. We are out of town for the shiva but there in spirit. Sending our love to the whole Kolton family.
