It is with great sadness that the family of Robert Joseph Barron announce his sudden passing at his home in Porter Cove, NB, on Friday, June 14, 2024. Born on July 30th, 1962, in Fredericton NB, he was the son of the late Michael A. and Shirley A. (nee Peacock) Barron.

Robert also leaves behind many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Michael A. and Shirley A. (nee Peacock) Barron; his brother, Danny Barron; his niece, Sara Barron; and canine companions, Molly and James.

Robert followed in his father’s footsteps working as an insulator for many years in the family business, Maritime Insulation, before starting his own company. He will be fondly remembered for his love of the outdoors, salmon fishing on the Miramichi River and spending time at the camp/barn at Porter Cove with his friends. Robert cared deeply for both canines and felines and assisted CARMA in rescuing and fostering many stray cats in the Boiestown NB area.  He will be missed by all of those who knew and loved him.
