Glenn E. Barton

April 6, 1924 — Oct. 31, 2012

Born April 6, 1924, to Pat and Bonnie Barton in Pretty Prairie, Kan., where he also graduated high school, Glenn entered the Army in 1943 in time to participate in the Liberation of the Phillipines at Leyte in World War II. He re-enlisted and served with the “Circle ‘C’ Cowboys” (U.S. Calvary Constabulary) in post-war Germany, where he met and married his first wife, the former Renate Trautmann. After another war (Korea), re-assignment to Ft. Riley as an ROTC instructor at Kansas University, the birth of two boys, assignment to the Nike Hercules missile program at Almagordo, N.M., deployment to Germany and then Travis AFB, Glenn retired from the Army with the rank of Master Sergeant in 1964 and began a Civil Service career at the Presidio of San Francisco. During this time he met and married his second wife, the former Marilyn Gergley, gaining two daughters and moving to Terra Linda in the process.

Glenn eventually moved to Vallejo, installing electrical components in submarines at Mare Isle. In the late 80s he retired for a third time and moved to Pollock Pines and then Diamond Springs, Calif., to be near his son, where he enjoyed fishing, square dancing and volunteer working for the U.S. Forest Service. There he met Carmen Baker, whose companionship he shared for a number of years before moving to Bishop in 2011, where he resided until his death.

Glenn is survived by sons and daughters-in-law, Curtis and Bridget Barton of West Linn, Ore., and Rod and Marcia Barton of Bishop (formerly of Placerville); daughters and sons-in-law, Pamela and Paul Moe of Mill Valley and Cindy and Louis Alessandria of Novato, Calif.; sister, Phyllis Sheehan of Hutchinson, Kan.; grandchildren, Erin Lofton, Andy Blok, Mitchell, Allison and Mathew Barton, Nicholas and Colin Moe and Joshua and Joseph Alessandria; and ex-wives, Renate Hadley and Marilyn Barton.

Besides devoting his life to our national defense, Glenn was a good husband, father and mentor and the person one could count on whenever needed. He taught his children integrity, independence and the value of an honest day’s work. He is greatly missed.
