He slipped quietly and peacefully away from his beloved Cape Breton and into the waiting arms of our Heavenly Father on Wednesday, January 4, 2017 at 9 a.m. Francis was a son, brother and an uncle to many. To his co-workers and friends he was known as “Barney”. He was born on June 11, 1931, in Glace Bay, to the late Frank and Catherine (Handrahan) Barron. He lived his entire life in Glace Bay except for the last 7 years, he and his late wife, Wilma, spent at Alderwood Guest Home in Baddeck.

Francis is survived by his four sisters, Alice Ryan, Genevieve (Tootsie) MacGillivary, Rose Murium Barron all of Glace Bay, Mary Moffatt, Dominion; one brother, Mike Barron, Kamloops, BC; numerous nieces and nephews. A small man in Stature he had a generous and big heart.

Francis worked at all of the mines in the Glace Bay area and survived many mining accidents. He had a love for animals, music and loved to step dance and sing. A man of great faith, strength and courage that he had helped him to the end.

Cape Breton Regional Palliative Care was wonderful. Words cannot express the thanks to all the nurses and staff at Alderwood Guest Home, Baddeck. You made the last 7 years of his life as comfortable as possible. Your kindness and caring toward him and Wilma will never be forgotten. God bless all of you. You were his second family.
