No one who understands hell,

wants to go to hell.

Some who say they want to go to heaven,

Old man winter sounds fierce out there,

And the trees swing, their limbs all bear,

Its pretty cold, even for a hare.

Below zero.


The snow is blowing in little drifts,

The wind is coming in great icy whiffs,

The cold mercury wouldn’t even lift.

No warm hero.

Albert A Barr died 3/1/2009.  He was born to Albert & Lillian (Turner) Barr, Meadville, PA, 5/1/1943. His father’s work for the military required frequent moves; Albert attended school in all 48 contingent states. This didn’t lend itself to learning & some teachers considered him limited – in reality he approached to or was genius. He started using computers when all he had was a row of toggle switches.  He went on to learn two more computer languages & was fascinated by computer graphics. Art was one of his interests. 

He married Miss Olen Christmas in his youth & they were blessed with Cindy, Allen & Phillip. Years after Sis. Olen died he married Mrs Sandy Price Miller, originally of Phoenix. Albert graduated from Anderson College & Clemson U (both in SC) with strength in the sciences & taught science 17 yrs at Hobe Sound.

He pastored & did evangelistic work in addition to teaching & doing art; did the art work for an entire book for Dr Dale Yocum.  Few men could hold an audience like him whether teaching, doing a seminar, or being his transparent self in a camp or revival. Many of us loved, wept & laughed at his stories & loved him.
