It’s all about the ‘dash’ . . . the life lived, the time between the dates. Tom (Thomas) Baron was born May 1, 1934 in Belmond, IA to Earl and Ruby (South) Baron. He went from working in his dad’s chicken hatchery in southern Missouri to serving our country in the Air Force during the Korean War where his patriotism was born. He spent most of his working career in sales, owning his own insurance agency and then retiring from Farmers Insurance Group after 29 years of service. His love of God and family, creation, and love for his country could be seen by all who knew and spent time with him.
Tom is survived by his spouse of 67 years, Carol (Houchen) Baron of Harrison AR, 3 children, Mark Baron and his wife Jane, of Omaha, AR, Vickie Barnhart and her husband Greg of Fort Worth, TX, Michael Baron of Bella Vista, AR, and a brother, Carl Baron, and his wife Betty of Davenport, FL. Tom is also survived by 6 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren and 7 grand-dogs.
Tom joins the ‘cloud of witnesses’ who have gone before him. (Hebrews 11) ‘Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, being proof of the things we do not see and the conviction of their reality.’ To be absent from the body is to be present with Christ.
‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but have everlasting life.’ John 3:16
