Obituary for John B. 'Jack' Barron
John B. 'Jack' Barron, 74, died after a short battle with cancer at his home Monday, March 9, 2015. Jack was born on September 5, 1940 in Chelsea, MA. He spent most of his childhood in Somerville, MA and his last 47 years in Billerica, MA. He was the son of Thomas Barron and Mary (Murphy) Barron, both of Newfoundland. Jack was a graduate of Somerville High School and Middlesex Community College. He was self employed as a mason and tile setter and was also known as a 'Jack' of all trades. Jack was often called by family and friends for any type of small repairs around the home or car and will be forever known as the 'kid' who climbed the flag pole at Somerville High School after each Tech Tourney game. Jack spent many years as a volunteer hockey coach in the Billerica Hockey Association where he is remembered fondly by many. He took great pride in spending time with his children and grandchildren, particularly in watching them with their athletic activities. He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Jeanne, his two children John Barron and Marci Barnes, Marci's husband David Barnes, his sister-in-law Mary 'Maisy' Barron, sisters Arlene Champoux, Joan Connelly and husband Leo and Mary Staffier and husband Robert, brother Thomas Barron and many nieces and nephews.
