Longneck, DE

Francis “Fran” P. Barr Jr., 81, of Longneck, DE, formerly of Clifton Heights, PA passed away on June 1, 2022.

Born in 1940 in Media, PA, he was the son of the late Francis P. and Anne E. (Lindsay) Barr Sr.

Fran was the beloved husband for 60 years of his high school sweetheart, Elizabeth “Betsy” M. (Corcoran) Barr; loving father of Joan Richards (Tom), Patrick Barr (Sandy), Diane Barr (Ron) and Maureen Biondi (Rob); proud grandfather of Thomas IV (Ashley), Zachary (Samantha), Shane (Brianna), Michael (Jen), Fallon (Noah), Jessica and Emily; great-grandfather of Luca, Nico and Tommy; dear brother of Anne Schumucker and Kay Borton; and also survived by numerous beloved nieces and nephews.

Fran was a 1959 graduate of Monsignor Bonner High School and served proudly in the US Navy during the Cuban Missile Crisis. He worked as a Peco lineman from 1962-1990. After his retirement, he became a landlord, owning and maintaining several properties.

Fran was an avid hunter, fisherman and all around great outdoorsman. He was a lifetime member of Whippoorwill Hunting Club in Phillipsburg, PA. He enjoyed boating and was a big Eagles and Penn State football fan.

He especially enjoyed spending time with his family and they will miss all of his corny dad jokes, which kept them laughing.
