Blvd. In Tucson, 520-326-4343. The service will be on December 27th, beginning at 10 a.m. at the funeral home. His sons, Bill and Bob, will officiate the ceremony. Barney was born June 4, 1921 in Elk River, Minnesota to Edward and Adele Barnier. At 15, he left Minnesota to participate in the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corp), which was also known at Roosevelt's Tree Army, in Illinois. The CCC was an innovative federally funded organization that put thousands of Americans to work during the great depression on projects with environmental benefits by providing jobs and natural resource conservation. In 1945, he served in the navy as a member of the Seabees and was stationed in Okinawa, Japan. After serving his country, he moved to Arizona and establish his own welding business, C.B. Welding, becoming one of the leading welders in Southern Arizona. He helped build Arizona with works in Tubac, Green Valley, Rio Rico, and many churches. He retired in 1982 at 62 years of age. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, and gardener, specializing in red roses and tomatoes.

After retiring, he also enjoyed reading Westerns and telling stories of his CCC, hunting and fishing escapades.Barney is survived by his wife of 28 years, Lores, his 5...

Five were in Kanawha County, and one each was in Jackson County and Ohio County.Among the dead was Melissa Hess, 47.

Thirteen minutes later, she told operators that the water was halfway up the windshield.Emergency responders couldn’t get down Wills Creek Road to reach Hess, Humphreys said.

After 98 years, Charleston funeral home closes doors - Parkersburg News

Interstate 64 through Charleston. As people began moving to houses outside the city, funeral homes were affected, just like any other business, he said.In the old days, "the Elk River was the dividing line. People on the East End didn't come to the West Side to do business," he said, "and people on the West Side didn't go to the East End."First opened on the East End in 1918 as Bartlett and Boyle FuneralHome, the owners temporarily relocated the business to 120 West Washington St., where Winter Floral is now located, while its new building was being constructed at 513 Tennessee Ave.The current location opened in 1930 and features items that still remain today.Among them is a pipe organ made by Wick's Organ Co., next to the funeral home's chapel."Before the organ was put in, there was a button on the wall, and they had a Victrola player upstairs," Cox explained. "(You) pushed the button when they wanted the song played, and a person would put the record on."While they haven't been used in ages, there are still crypts in the basement dating back to the days before every road was paved."Years ago, you couldn't get out in the country in the wintertime on the dirt roads to bury people. We'd store them in these crypts," he said.But things were done differently back then.Cox got his start in the funeral business as a teenager in the mid-1940s, when "everybody went to war." He started helping run ambulance calls for Elk Funeral Home.Then he started working at Bartlett in 1948, where he washed cars and made ambulance calls."We transported (people), we ran to car wrecks, we did everything," he recalled. They would travel everywhere f...
