James L. Barron

James L. Barron, 70, of Lansing, NY, passed away on Tuesday, August 28, 2018, at Cayuga Medical Center, Ithaca, after a courageous battle with cancer.  Born in Cortland, NY, on July 7, 1948, he was the son of the late Harry and Marie Beckwith Barron.  Jim was a 1966 graduate of  Lansing High School and later attended BOCES, where he studied electrical engineering.  Most recently, he was employed as an injector repairman at D&W Diesel, Inc., in Auburn, NY.

Jim had a passion for hunting and fishing, but more than anything, he loved spending time with his wife and family.  He also was the best farmer around and worked on his dad’s farm for many years.

He is survived by his loving wife of 42 years, Diane Marie Coyne Barron; daughters, Julie Barron Lewis (Scott) and Tari Barron Colledge (Tom); step-sons, Craig C. Card, Shawn W. Card and Todd M. Card; grandchildren, Allyssa Harris (Dave Witty), Charles Harris, III (Melinda), Brandon Colledge, Halie Colledge, Grace Colledge, Johnathan Lewis, Ivey Card, Mackenzie Card, Johnathan Card and Shawna Card; several great-grandchildren; sisters, Lois Decker (Dave), Carol Boles (Jim), and Helen Grant; brother, Harry Barron (Sally); sister-in-law, Judy Barron; several nieces and nephews; and very special family friends, Deb and Doug Meyers.  In addition to his parents, Jim was preceded in death by several brothers and sisters.

A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
