I served with Tim on USS Lapon, Tim was an extraordinary shipmate. He gave of himself entirely and was there for everyone from the Seaman working in the Galley to the Commanding Officer. He was a joy to be around. He was always willing to give a hand to help. Tim and Annette have always attended the Ship reunions. They will be sorely missed from this point on. Until we see each other again Tim Stand Down we have the watch.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Even though i didn’t talk much to Tim as i did Annette, i still had that personal feeling of friendship when ever he was around us. He is now singing in the heavens and wrapping his wings around you all. He will be missed and his smile will continue to be a picture of happiness he had in his heart. Much love to you all.

Tim’s last year on the Lapon was my first on board. We worked in different departments, but it didn’t take long for me to see that he was a very upbeat guy and a “heavy” - he knew that boat inside-out. My condolences for the loss of a great shipmate.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

To the family and friends of Tim and the Barretts, I grew up as their neighbor on Wolcott Hollow Road in Bradford County PA. When I was but a child Tim showed me how the calves were raised and even let me give one calf a bottle of milk! Without a doubt the Barrett family was the hardest working family I ever met. Many good memories of Pine Top Farm. Sail on fellow Sailor, "Fair Winds and Following Seas."

Prayers for you and your family. I was Navy Nuclear Machinist Mate on Uss Lapon 2 years after Tim got out of the navy. Being on the Uss Lapon is timeless from those who served when she was commissioned in the 60s to her decommissioning in the 90s. Tim looks like he lived life to the fullest. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Annette it's difficult to hear of Tim's passing. Deepest condolences to you, and your family. Tim was so athletic, capable, intelligent and curious about anything and everything. His unique and imaginative sense of humor, and joy for life made him special. Tim had a true moral compass, and was not afraid, even as a young man to share his faith. You made a great couple and created a wonderful family. Susan and I hold you in our thoughts and prayers.

Tim was a special man who was ALWAYS smiling. He was kind to all he met! I enjoyed our time in the OLMC choir. Tim gave all of himself to everything he did. He will be greatly missed. Love to Annette and girls you were truly his joy.
