Ted (Gump) Barker, 75, of Earlville, NY, passed away Tuesday, November 20, 2018 at Strong Memorial Hospital, Rochester, NY from complications of a massive heart attack on November 11, 2018.
Ted was born on February 25, 1943 in Earlville to Harold T. and Jane Dungey Barker. He was a graduate of Earlville High School and attended MVCC in Utica for a short time. Ted worked as a draftsman at T.A.C.O., Sherburne; Matthew Brothers, Delhi; GLA, Norwich; Gray, Syracuse; Town of Sherburne Highway Dept., and as a NYS Fire Instructor. He married Priscilla Stanton in Earlville on May 30, 1986.
Ted was a 55-year member of the Earlville Fire Department where he served in many offices, including as Chief for many years. He was Fireman of the Year in 1990, and had also been honored as Fireman of the Year in Madison and Chenango counties. He was also a member and President of the Earlville Conservation Club.
Ted was known for always meeting someone he knew, be it in the grocery store, the middle of O’Hare airport in Chicago, or at a restaurant near Cape Cod, MA. He enjoyed the outdoors, especially hunting, fishing, golfing, and shooting trap. His favorite times were playing basketball and kickball with his twin granddaughters. He also enjoyed drinking coffee with friends and relatives, and last, but not least, mowing his lawn.
