When William H. "Bill" Barron arrived in heaven, he was greeted with, "How are you, sweet lips?" and without a doubt his answer was, "Outstanding!"

After graduating from North Side High School in 1945, he spent two years in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Korea.

Bill attended St. Andrew Catholic Church with his wife for many years, and was recently baptized into the Catholic faith. Bill and his wife enjoyed almost 54 years together with their greatest joys involving their children and grandchildren and enjoying good friends and food, dancing, going on cruises and sharing opinions.

"Outstanding" summarized the life of this man.
