Rob Lee Barker
Rob L. Barker of Albion, Pa. took the Lord’s hand and went home on Monday, July 24, 2023 at his home.
Rob was born in Erie, Pa. on April 20, 1956, the son of the late Eugene C. and Beth A. (Gibbs) Barker. He retired in 2020 from Penn Union in Edinboro, Pa where he worked in the foundry for over 45 years. Rob was a devout Christian. He enjoyed reading his Bible everyday and he valued the importance of having faith in God and Jesus, and believing in the words of the Bible. He enjoyed creating bronze statues and ornaments of just about anything. He loved cutting his grass, camping, bicycle riding, and traveling with his late best friend, Zane Currier, and he loved all his neighbors.
Besides his parents, Rob was preceded in death by a brother, Wayne; a sister, Gail Kelly; four aunts, Mabel, Betty, Ida, and Frances; and two uncles, Daniel and David Gibbs.
Rob is survived by two sons: Leland (Jeff) Barker of Erie, Pa., Jason R. (Heather) Barker of Ashtabula, OH; two brothers, Tim (Cindy) Barker of Springfield, OH, and Russ (April) Barker of Platea, PA; and two Grandchildren, Ethan and Seth and a Great-Grandson, Charlie. He is also survived by several relatives and family in Michigan, Gary & Pat Burmeister, Dale & Janise Burmeister, Deb Burmeister and Sharon Burmeister. He also leaves behind his best friends, Pammy, Jamie and Matt.
Rob’s wishes were to not have any services. Memorials may be made In Memory of Rob Barker to his son Jason.
