Barney was noted for always having a smile on his face and a joke (probably a corny joke) to tell you. One of the things he loved doing was writing, directing and acting in plays for the Wrinkled City Players. He was also very active including Head Usher at Woodburn United Methodist Church. His cooking talents were often called upon to make his famous chili and pancake breakfasts for the attendees of church functions and at Estates Golf & Country Club.
