(Full-size photo)


Joseph “Joe” F. Barrington was born September 23, 1953, the youngest of identical twins, and passed from this world to join his parents on July 18, 2012, at the age of 58. His parents, May and Frank Barrington, preceded him in death. Joe is survived by his son, Ryan and his Daughter, Erin and several grandchildren. He is also survived by his brothers, Michael (Stephanie), Thomas (Cynthia). Jerome (Jerry -his twin), and William (Sondra); his sisters, Anna Rivas (George) and Myrtle Dupret (Andre); many nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles.
He spent a great deal of his adult life working for the city of Spokane and keeping the streets as free of snow as possible. He attended Lewis and Clark High School and was a life-long resident of the Spokane area. Joe was a friend to all and a stranger to none. He was a great source of entertainment. He missed his calling as a comedian. His silliness and hugs will be missed by all of us who knew and loved him.
A memorial service will be held in his honor at the Mt Spokane Church, 6311 E. Mt. Spokane Park Drive Mead, WA on Saturday, July 28, 2012, at 11:00 am.
