Michael Neil “Mike” Barr
Michael Neil “Mike” Barr, 59, of Hewitt, passed away Monday, April 22, 2019.
Funeral services will be at 11 a.m., Friday, April 26, at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Robinson with the Rev. Jim Daniels and the Rev. Larry Wymore officiating. Visitation will be held thirty minutes prior to the service.
Mike was born July 17, 1959, in Kilgore to Neil and Carol (Sanders) Barr. He attended Cameron schools, graduating from Yoe High School in 1977. He married Cynthia Ann Taylor on April 4, 1981, in Waco. After earning his Associates Degree from TSTI, he went on to work in commercial printing. He was a member of Cornerstone Baptist Church and served as Youth Director for four years.
Mike was a jokester and was known for making people laugh. He loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He did not let 22 years of Multiple Sclerosis dictate his life. When all he had left was the use of his mouth, he used it to build up others.
He was preceded in death by his father, Neil Barr.
Survivors include his wife, Cindy Barr; daughter, Jennifer Barr; son, Matthew Barr; granddaughter, Mikayla Hutson “the light of his life”; mother, Carol Barr; brother, Jason Barr and wife Becky; sister, Tracy Phelps and husband Bill; four nieces and one nephew; three great-nieces; and step-brother, Paul Mathews.
The family would like to acknowledge a special thank you to the nurses and caregivers at the Atrium of Bellmead for their love and care for Mike.
Memorial contributions may be made to the Cornerstone Baptist Church.
When asked about what Mike would want to be said about himself, he replied:
“Not much is to be said about me, but my Cinny Bear’s commitment, sacrifice and her love through our journey. “
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2Timothy 4:7
