    As I stated, Indiana Trapshooting has suffered a great loss.

    Got news late this evening that Judy Barker has passed. Judy was the wife of Don Barker who ran Fulton County Gun Club in Rochester, IN.

    Just wanted to say that our thoughts and prayers are with Don and his family and that Judy will truly be missed.

    Regards,
    Matt Krizinski

    This hits like a ton of bricks, a true surprise. Judy was such a happy person, full of life and a true joy to be around. She will be greatly missed by all but most of all by Don, hang tough my friend.

    Wow, what a shock. I haven't been to Fulton County in a few years. What a great club, and people. Don and Judy showed me the ropes of ATA shooting when I first joined years ago. I'm truly sorry. I'll pray for Don and his family. Wayne

    Just got the phone call this morning. If someone in the area could post arrangements, we would appreciate it. I will post what I know so far.

    Wake will be held tomorrow, Wed, Feb 17th and the Funeral will be at 10 AM on Thursday, Feb 18th. Arrangements will be through Good Family Funeral Home.

    I just spoke with Don last week. It was quite a shock to get the call this morning. Don -- you and your family will be in our thoughts for quite some time.

    Thanks,

    John

    Don,

    You are in my prayers. Judy was a great person. The two of you always made everyone feel welcome and never forgot a name once you met them.

    In the few years I have been going to Fulton Co., I have felt accepted and comfortable thanks to Don and Judy. Judy will be quite missed, by me and by all.

    Stay strong Don,

    Don and Judy made me feel at home last year in Hoosier land after being gone for such a long time and now I'm gone again, this time in Colorado. Thanks to them for their hospitality and friendly welcome at their club. My thoughts and prayers to Don and his family.

    Our Prayers go out for Don & his family at this great loss. It will be really different now, shooting at Fulton CO. Gun club this coming summer with out Judy being behind the food counter. It's really hard to understand the "Big Plan" God has in mind for us, but there is one, I'm sure. Wayne & Mary Downham / Camden, IN
