Obituary of Barry Leslie Barton

Barry Leslie Barton, age 72, passed away peacefully, surrounded by the ones that loved him with every ounce of their being on June 29, 2022. Barry was born in Washington, DC on September 27, 1949 to, and is preceded in his death by his mother, Velda Elise and his father, Leslie Cecil.  He has family and friends from every walk of life, from a few different continents, but was always very fond of his British roots and valued his family in England with the highest regard. Barry excelled in everything he did and instilled an amazing ethic and love of family in his children, who will carry that torch. He met his love, Christy, at the racetrack on a blind date on Friday the 13th where he was so shy he had trouble coming out from under the car to even say hello.  Three months later; they were engaged, they married and started a beautiful life together in 1976. He spent over 45 years in the automotive industry was loved and adored by everyone he worked with, proving to be a wonderful teacher and an invaluable shoulder to lean on to his colleagues and everyone under his management. In addition to his family and his friends that he held so dear, Barry had a love for Johnny Cash, a good steak and a nice cold beer.  Barry was a caring and incredibly smart man, who spent most of his life thinking about and giving to  others, without expectation.  This world would be better with more Barry’s in it!  He always surrounded himself with his friends and family, which is where he felt most comfortable and loved. He is survived by his wife of almost 46 years, Christina Barton, his daughter, Lee Ann Bynaker and her husband Doug and their three children, Nathan, Abigail and Griffyn, his son, Kenny Barton, his fiancé Jenna and his children Destiny, Xavier and Aiden and his son, Christopher, his wife Christina and their children, Logan, Lucas, Emma and Liam. He would LOVE for us all to gather together and remember how gentle and loving he was, laugh and remember the good times, so there will be a Celebration of Life at Beautiful Creation Event Hall located at 300 East Main Street, Remington, VA 22734 on July 12, 2022 beginning at 4PM.  He was an easy going man that loved to laugh so please come dressed casually and with your favorite memory.
