A successful salesman in the Florida Keys, “Barney” was known as a kind man who always put a smile on everyone’s face. He never missed an opportunity to say hello; a legacy that will remain. His heart and soul always remained in the suburbs of Philadelphia, where he was surrounded by life-long friends and family. “Everyone knew his name.”
Remembrance service was held at Dean Lopez Funeral Home in Big Pine Key on Thursday, Nov. 18, at 2:30 pm.
“Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.”
