Patrick Roy Barker, 84, of Colorado City passed away peacefully at the Mitchell County Nursing and Rehab Center with his family by his side. He was born October 2, 1933 in McCalister, Oklahoma.

He married the love of his life, Mary Katherine Jones, on December 23, 1953. He was a good husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle. If somebody needed anything he would be there for them always willing to go the extra mile. He worked as a lineman for the cable company, as well as the Texas Highway Department; and was a police officer for Colorado City and Lubbock for several years. He was a social butterfly who loved dancing to country music and never had trouble getting somebody out on the dancefloor with him.

Taylor Jr. of Auckland, New Zealand; three great-grandchildren, Karson, Kaydence, and Kennedy Martin; nieces, Theresa Shelby and husband Mo, and Karan Mayes, all of Abilene; and nephews, Mike Barker of Tennessee, James Barker and wife Debbie of Merkel, and Dale Barker and wife Cindy of Abilene; as well as many great and great great nieces and nephews.

I am so sorry to hear of Roy's passing. I remember back in C-City, in the 60's ad 70's, he would pop by my my aunt and grandmother's place (Bette Williams and Ruth Williams). Aunt Bette, we called her. She was confined to a wheelchair and Roy was ALWAYS so chipper and happy and he would just carry on with us. He loved to visit and he was very good to "Aunt Bette and Nanny" out there on the Snyder Highway. He had an infectious smile and I loved his personality. It too, was infectious.

My heartfelt condolences go out to all affected. May our loving father wrap his arms around you all during this most difficult time.
