Samuel Anthony Barton Jr.

March 28, 1941 - March 01, 2024


Samuel Anthony Barton, 82, was born on March 28, 1941, in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, and passed away peacefully in Bend Oregon on March 1, 2024. He joins his mother, Annetta, his father, Samuel, his sister, Carol, his beloved wife, Luckie, and his treasured son, Scottie. A proud veteran, Samuel served twenty-one years as a Marine and retired as a Master Gunnery Sergeant. He was a professor, negotiator, restaurateur, and a mentor to many. His legacy is carried by his family, Stephen, Brooke, Taylor, Lisa, and Linda.

Samuel had many passions, hobbies, and careers throughout his life. A proud veteran, Samuel dedicated twenty-one years to the Marine Corp. and retired a Master Gunnery Sergeant, serving as President Kennedy’s Honor Guard. He negotiated high profile contracts, filled lecture halls and classrooms, and lived a quiet, simple life with his wife of forty-five years, Luckie. He made many, many friends at the weekend Farmers Markets, and never turned down a good plate of Italian food or the chance to share his wealth of knowledge with a student, friend, or colleague. A man of faith, Samuel spent ample time in prayer and kept his heart close to God. To his loved ones, he was Uncle Buckie, Poppy, Sam, Dad, and Pops, but most importantly, he was the solid foundation from which his family blossomed. His life was incredible—too full to truly encapsulate—and his bright spirit never failed to illuminate the people around him.

We love you and will forever miss you!

    Sam was a man of many talents, but his greatest gift was the unwavering love and devotion he had for his family. He was their rock, always ready to lend a helping hand or a listening ear when they needed him most. Sam instilled in them the values of hard work, integrity, and kindness, and these are the principles that have guided them through life.

    Losing Sam has left an irreplaceable void in our lives, but we find solace in the memories we shared and the love that will forever bind us. As we bid him a final farewell, let us remember him for the wonderful person he was—a loving husband, a devoted father, a doting grandfather, a loyal friend, and above all, a truly remarkable human being.

    As we say our final goodbyes, I find comfort in knowing that Sam lived a fulfilling life, enriched by the love of his family and the respect of his peers. He may be gone, but he will never be forgotten. His teachings will live on in us, his values will guide us, and his love will sustain us as we navigate the path of life without him.
