OBITUARY

James A. Barron Former Carlisle Building and Plumbing Inspector

James A. Barron, 95, died peacefully in his sleep on Thursday, January 25, after a short illness. Jim had been a resident of Carlisle since February 1943 when he and his wife, Cecelia, moved into the house at 91 Westford Street. Jim and Cecelia (who died in 1995) were born in Cambridge and Dorchester respectively, and found enormous comfort in the solitude, beauty and sense of community that the town of Carlisle offered. They raised their family of five children here, and they were both active in the community. Back in the early years, Jim was involved in the town government. In the 1960s, Jim witnessed Carlisle's growth in his positions as building inspector and plumbing inspector, posts he held for nearly twenty years.

He was instrumental in the establishment of the first Catholic Church in Carlisle. In fact, the first service was held on the Barrons' lawn on July 7, 1946 with 99 men, women and children participating. The first parish was originally named St. Elizabeth's after Cecelia's mother, and was renamed St. Irene in the 1970s. Jim helped construct this first church by arranging for the purchase of a surplus U.S. Army depot for the price of $200 and thus a church was born. Jim was working on the construction of a Sears Roebuck project at the time and arranged for the donation of surplus lumber to the church to be used for the construction of the steeple.

Jim began his career as a licensed plumber in large-scale commercial construction in the 1920s after graduating from Wentworth Institute. He was a lifelong member of Local 12 Plumbers Union. He was proud to have had responsibility for the installation of complex plumbing systems in many of the landmark skyscrapers constructed in the city of Boston during the twentieth centurythe Prudential Tower, the Federal Reserve Bank, the State Street Bank. He always looked upon these structures as his buildings. He was highly respected in his field. One of his early apprentices recently said of him, "I learned lessons from him that I've used all my life ... and he was a good plumber."

In 1993 Jim received Carlisle's Most Honored Citizen Award at the Old Home celebrations.

Jim Barron will be remembered by all who knew him as a man of integrity, humor and kindness. He will always be lovingly remembered by his family: James and Patricia Barron of Tewksbury, Jonathan and Charline Barron of Harvard, Peter Barron of Chatham, New York, Mark Barron and Cheryl Pastorius of Maynard, Eleanor and Michael Gorman of Cumberland, Rhode Island, his seven grandchildren Caroline and Paul Sciaraffa of Cumberland, Rhode Island, Catherine and Greg Pitters of Portland, Oregon, Jake Barron of Greensboro, Vermont, Jennifer and James Barron of Tewksbury, Jessica and Rachael Barron of Harvard, and his great-grandson Levi Pitters of Portland, Oregon, as well as the many people whose lives he touched in his long life.

He was also the father of the late Joseph Paul Barron, who died in 1951.

Private services were held in St. Bernard's Cemetery, Concord, on Saturday, January 27. For those who wish, gifts in his memory may be sent to The Jimmy Fund, 1309 Beacon Street, Brookline, Massachusetts 02446. Arrangements were under the direction of the MacRae-Tunnicliffe Funeral Home, Concord.
