SHARE Obituary: John Darrin “J.D.” Barr

Surrounded by his family and friends, Darrin returned to his Heavenly Father the afternoon of August 9, 2000.

He was born March 30, 1965 in Salt Lake City, son of John L. and Ann Marie Jensen Barr. At the age of twelve he began a three year battle with Ewings sarcoma cancer. With the expertise of many great doctors and staff, he "beat the odds" and survived. Because of health problems he quit working in 1990 and spent the next few years taking care of himself and his ailing mother. He was a compassionate grandson who loved and cared for his Grandpa Jensen during his later years. In January of this year Darrin moved to Hinckley, Utah where he really enjoyed the peace and quiet.

He is survived by his father, John L. Barr; stepmother, Gail J. Barr; sister, Lisa Ann (Roger) Hedden; stepsister, ShaMe' Rynes; stepbrothers, Lance (Laurie) Hemsley and Tyler (Debbie) Hemsley; 17 nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his mother; grandparents, James Robert and Faye Wells Jensen; John Buxton and Thora Lofgreen Barr.

Darrin loved people and they loved him. He had the personality to make many good friends. We want to give special thanks to all of his friends who were there when he needed them. He was a giving and caring person and will be missed by all who knew him.

Graveside services will be held Saturday, 12 noon at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 10600 South 1700 East. Under the direction of McDougal Funeral Home.
