Obituary for John Barton, Jr.

John Barton, Jr. was born on May 30, 1922 in Greenville, South Carolina to the late John and Fannie Barton. He was one of seven children. He departed this life on Tuesday, June 26, 2018, at the Veterans Hospital in East Orange, NJ.

John had an adventurous side, which landed him in Uptown Harlem in his early teens. He served in the United States Navy during World War II. As part of the backbone of the Navy community, he received the rank of Seaman First Class and was honorably discharged in February, 1946. He worked many years as a head waiter in the executive dining area of HSBC, Inc. on 5th Avenue in New York City.

John met the love of his life, Ellen and to this union, one daughter, Jill was born.

John loved to travel and enjoyed family outings that included fishing and cookouts. He devoted most of his time entertaining and cooking and you could be sure that he would put out a pot of beans on the stove! He had a passion for playing and teaching golf and was also a master gardener.

John leaves to cherish his memory, Ellen and their daughter, Jill, and granddaughter, Myla; his stepson Scott and his four children; his brother-in-law Arthur (Poncha) Russell and his son Tony. He also leaves behind a host of nieces and nephew from as far as Ohio, Detroit, Virginia and South Carolina as well as his cherished friends, Jimmy and Phil.
