Michael Ray Barton

 

Michael Ray Barton entered into eternal rest on January 27, 2023, at the age of 63.

Mike was born to Herschel and Dorothy Barton in Mansfield, Louisiana on April 11, 1959. He was a self-taught carpenter and craftsman of many trades. Anyone that knew Mike knew that he was a hard worker, working up until his last days. If you asked him for help, he not only was going to help you, he was going to show you and teach you, with great detail, how to fix the problem. He took pride in his work and he loved his family hard. Mike was the baby of the family but his presence was big, his personality was big, his laughter was big, his heart even bigger. You could hear his laugh from the other room and he was always going to crack a joke to make light of any situation even in his last moments he wanted to make everyone laugh and that's exactly what he did. The list to describe Mike is too great but a few stand out; philosopher, crafty, stern but gentle, God fearing, teacher, kind, tender hearted, sensitive, respected, lover of all animals, giving, wise, accident prone (if you know, you know) and so much more and He left this earth way too soon.

He is preceded in death by his parents, wife Dana Barton and brother Kerry Barton.

Left behind to cherish his memory, his son Michael Barton (Adriene), daughters Mathilda Demorest, Dawn Burch (Stephen), Johnette Bourdon, Michelle Weeks, Jamie Lee McClellan (Matt), Annemarie Walker, sisters Lynda Binning Laffitte (Stuart “Boogie”), Kathy Broadway (Travis) Grandchildren Trey, Dakota, Luke, Austin, Jayda, Carissa, Samaira, Genesis, Derik, Fallyn, Isaac, Karsyn,Ace, Braelyn, Joey, Jonathon, Michael Beck, Victoria, Kayden, Alexandria, Noah, 7 great grands and fur babies George, Lil Bit, Lucy, Marty McFly, Speckles, and Duke and a host of family and friends.
