GLASGOW — Frederick Elvin Barton

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – Frederick Elvin Barton, 76, died Saturday, May 11, 2013, at Brighton Gardens in Brentwood, Tenn.

The youngest child and only son after four daughters, Fred was born on Sept. 20, 1936, on the family farm near South Fork Road in Barren County. Farming was his first occupation, but he earned his real estate license and began a company with Wallace Bartley in the 1960s. Their first project was the construction of Goodman Candy Company in 1965. Bartley & Barton Construction built many homes in Glasgow and the surrounding area. Later, Barton Construction Company and Barton Specialty Construction built several local landmarks such as Mary Wood Weldon Memorial Library on College Street, Glasgow Golf & Country Club and the Chamber of Commerce on Main Street. Mr. Barton also built his own office building, the distinctive A-frame structure that stood on the corner of Main Street and the By-Pass. He was particularly proud to have performed renovations at both Glasgow’s Historic Fort Williams and the Jefferson Davis Monument in Fairview, Ky. During his career, he worked on more than 100 projects all across the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Fred is survived by his wife, the former Jessie Farris Smith, of Nashville, Tenn.; one sister, Imogene Schooler, of Fisherville Ky.; three daughters, Beth Barton, of Raleigh, N.C., Anne Brickeen and husband Brian, of Oviedo, Fla., and Kathy Earley and husband Burke, of Youngsville, N.C.; one stepdaughter, Kathy Anderson and husband David Malloy, of Nashville, Tenn.; two stepsons, Kelly Smith and wife Trish, of Nashville, Tenn., and Jason Smith and wife Samantha, of Brentwood, Tenn.; five grandchildren, Daniel, David and Sarah Beth Brickeen and Ballard and Eleanor Earley; six step-grandchildren, Elliott and Asher Anderson, Nealie and Jesse Smith, and Milan and Jared Smith; three nephews; eight nieces; numerous great-nieces and nephews; and several great-great-nieces and nephews.

Mr. Barton was preceded in death by his parents, Elvin and Tressie Barton; his sisters, Mary Jane Farr, Eleanor Potter and Ernestine Britt; and one niece, Janet Duff.

Visitation was Monday from 4 to 7 p.m. at A.F. Crow and Son Funeral Home, 201 E. Washington St., Glasgow. Funeral service will be Tuesday, May 14, at 2 p.m.

The family would like to extend deepest gratitude to the staff at Brighton Gardens, an assisted living facility where Fred lived since June 2012.

Alternate expressions of sympathy may be made to the National Parkinson Foundation, Parkinson Disease Foundation, Michael J. Fox Foundation or to a local Hospice.
