Jimmy ‘Tailpipe’ Barker

Jimmy was taken from us unexpectedly on April 10, 2014, at home in Golden, Colorado.

Jimmy was born in Aurora, Colorado, and lived many years in the Denver area before relocating to Silt, Colo. Jimmy spent his life working as a mechanic. His passion in life was building and racing stock cars and casting a rod when he could.

He leaves behind his sons: Aaron & Jason Barker and (wife) Janelle, (grandkids) Madison & Tanner, (sister) Jody Weant, (husband) Larry and his wonderful mother June Seaman, along with many relatives and friends.

Memorial donations can be made at any US Bank in the name of Jimmy “Tailpipe” Barker Memorial Fund. A Celebration of life will be held at the Moose Lodge in Rifle, May 18, 2014 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. Questions: email Barker2009@live.com.
