WARNER, NH: Richard L. Barton, 83, of Warner, passed away on November 3, 2021 at the VA Hospital in White River Junction, VT.
He was born and raised in West Hopkinton, NH and he was the son of Leslie and Isabelle (Severance) Barton.
Richard enjoyed traveling the back roads with a fishing pole and picnic lunch in his jeep. Wildlife and nature brought him joy, especially watching the birds devour seeds from his feeders. He loved to plant flowers, cook (and share his spoils) and write poetry. He could put a smile on your face quickly with one of his many jokes. He was a proud Army Veteran from the Korean War era.
Richard is survived by his two children, Valerie Dyer and her husband Richard Dyer and Kent Barton and his wife Christine Barton, and his three grandchildren, Nicole Dyer, Ty Barton & Tessa Barton.
A graveside ceremony will be held on November 10, 2021 at 11:00 am at the Contoocook Village Cemetery in Contoocook, NH.
The Holt-Woodbury Funeral Home & Cremation Service is assisting the family.
