Jody "Jod"Jeremy Barton (Funeral date and time added)
Barton, Jody Jeremy
It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of our beloved son, Jody "Jod" Barton. He died in Moncton NB on January 3, 2019. Born in Minto, NB he was the loving son of Carey and Linda Barton.
Jody was born with Cerebral Palsy (CP) but he never let that stop him. Jody was loved by all who came to know him; he couldn’t speak or communicate in the traditional sense, but he was kind, gentle and very determined. Jody graduated high school and worked hard for the chance to live on his own. He had a strong faith in God and that was his sustaining anchor through life. His ready smile, big laugh and wonderful sense of humour always made others feel better. Every morning you would find him at his computer enjoying deep spiritual discussions with Mom and Dad or simply commenting on a recent post. For now, Jod is with his Lord, walking, speaking and smiling until we all meet again.
Survived by his forever caring parents, Carey "Bear" and Linda Barton; aunts, Carol Campbell (Harold), Gloria Sypher (Allen), Debbie Wilson (Gary), Susan Skytte (Creg), Celia LeBlanc, Lynn Barton, uncles, Danny Barton (Theresa), Tommy Barton (Sharon), Terry Barton (Janet), Norman Barton Jr. (Betty Anne), Calvin Barton.
Jody was predeceased by his paternal and maternal grandparents; as well as aunts and uncles.
