Hobbs

Donald Ray Barr, Age 74, of Hobbs, NM, passed away on Monday, January 25, 2021 from a long illness.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Herbert Thomas Barr and Katherine Barr, and a sister Shirley Ann Barr, and grandparents, Mr. & Mrs. Jesse Madison Barr and Mr. and Mrs. K C McAdams.  He is survived by his wife of 57 years Jenna Barr, one daughter, Deborah Ann McNaughton (husband Dave), one son Richard Don Barr (wife Bernice), one brother Stanley Wayne Barr (wife Lillian), grandchildren: Christopher Chad Barr (Alice), Michelle Ann Brown (Scott), Ricky Ray Barr, Roger Ryan Barr, great-grandchildren: Debra Reyna Hernandez, Abraham Barr, Jesse Alexander Gonzales, and several nieces and nephews.

Born June 21, 1946 in Colorado City, TX to parents Hebert Thomas Barr and Katherine Barr.

After marrying his high school sweetheart Jenna in 1963, Don moved right into the work force at John West Engineering where he served as a Party Chief and Inspector for over forty years before retirement in 2010.

Don was an excellent provider and devoted family man. He enjoyed boating and taking fishing trips with his family and spending time on beautiful lakes. He enjoyed watching his family have fun and a good time.

He liked studying history, war stories, and in later years studying the Bible. His favorite movies and television shows were westerns and war stories.

Don enjoyed a good football game. The Dallas Cowboys remained his favorite team. He also enjoyed some of the Baseball games and always liked to watch the Olympics.

He was a true craftsman and took pride in his home. He built onto it and added a few furniture pieces that will last for many years. He liked to be outside in his yard and water the lawn and many trees.

Later in life, Don built a strong faith in Jesus Christ and spent much of his time in Bible study. He enjoyed attending Temple Baptist Church with his family.

Don will be missed by his family and friends and we look eagerly to the day when we will be reunited.
