My name is Barton, but most people know me as “Bud”. In 1971, I graduated from Penn Highlands High School, Lewistown Campus. Upon graduation, I then served 4 years in the US Navy. Afterwards, I attended Williamsport Area Community College for 2 years, where I received an Associates degree in Marketing and Advertising. I have been retired since 2015, after working in various sales and marketing positions over the years. My wife, Vicki, was a bank branch manager for many years, and she has been retired since 2018.
I met my wife, Vicki, in my senior year of high school and we were married in July 1973. We have 2 grown daughters, Tiffany (married to Aaron) and Natalie (married to Jonathan). We have been blessed with 5 wonderful grandsons, Liam, Tyron, Trae, Malachi and Silas.
We both came to know the Lord on Valentine’s Day in 1983, through a couple we were friends with inviting us to church. This was followed up with a home visit from the pastor and deacon of the church we were attending at the time.
We have been attending Calvary Bible Church since 1987. My wife and I have served in many capacities over the years. Currently, I teach an adult Sunday School class, lead Small Group, Awana Club leader, Food Box Ministry and assist Vicki as part-time custodians. Vicki also is an Awana Club leader, is part of the Ladies Bible Study, helps lead the Ladies Fit to Trim class, and the Food Box Ministry. We have recently taken on the responsibility of leadership for our Food Box with the retirement of the current leaders.
We count it an honor and a privilege to serve our Lord and Savior in any capacity that He might use us.
