Edgar's picture
George A. Barron, Sr., 80, of Jena, passed from this life on Saturday, March 22, 2014 in Alexandria after a brief but valiant battle with cancer. He was born January 3, 1934 to the union of his parents, W. T. “Coon” and Alice
Wiggins Barron. George was a generous, caring man, whose career was spent in the oilfields of Central Louisiana. His greatest passion was helping others, whether with their oil wells, their cows or most anything else. A good friend to many people, he will be sorely missed by them all.
