Filed under: Obituaries |

Charles Aaron Barr, 47 years young, left this earthly home too soon on December 5, 2016. Born to Johnny and Shirlee Barr at Methodist Hospital, Dallas, Texas on May 1, 1969,

Aaron had from the day he entered the world, a beautiful, carefree spirit which made him so easy to love. As a result he had many, many friends. He was a southern gentleman who, true to his roots, never met a stranger. He was a natural in the lost art of listening. Known as “A” to friends and family, he touched many souls and will live on forever in the hearts of each of them.

Aaron had a deep appreciation for nature and a special love for animals, none more than sweet pit bull dog Bleu, his constant companion. A was a jack of all trades and master of more than a few. He was a grounds keeper, plumber, carpenter and, most recently, a leather worker. He appreciated good whiskey, a fine cigar and the good company and conversation that often accompanied both. He had a wicked sense of humor, a sly grin and a smile that would melt the coldest heart. Like his big brothers, he was a fine shot with a rifle, shotgun or pistol. A gave the best hugs and knew exactly when to hand one out in order to keep his Mom from wringing his neck. No more beautiful soul ever graced this good earth.

Aaron was preceded in death by his father, John H. Barr III; paternal grandparents John H. Barr Jr. and Virginia “Jean” Barrow Barr; maternal grandparents Thomas Jessie Holley and Virtie Lee Gibbs Holley and his uncle, Russell Louin Holley, all formerly of Bowdon, Georgia.

He is survived by his mother, Shirlee Jean Holley Barr of Duncanville, Texas; brother and sister-in-law, Judson Cook Barr and Suzanne Marie Mason Barr and nieces Grace Teagan Barr and Ainslee Valyn Barr of Irving, Texas; brother John Casey Barr and nephew Robert Allen Barr of Flower Mound, Texas; his aunt Carol Ann Barr of Whitesburg, Georgia and his uncle Robert Plotner Barr of Carrollton, Georgia.
