Carl Barco

Carl Michael Barco, 50, 29-year resident of Oak Harbor, died suddenly March 10, 2003, at Providence Hospital, Colby Campus, in Everett.

Mr. Barco was born April 4, 1952 in Philadelphia to Eugene Barco and Adeline (Fergone) Barco. Carl was an employee of Verizon (GTE) for the past 26 years. He worked in the Oak Harbor office for a number of years and was most recently working out of the general office in Everett.

Carl was a fun-loving man who was adored by everyone who knew him. He was known best for his love of old Corvettes and could often be seen driving around in his pale yellow 1967 convertible on sunny days. This world is a better place for having him in it and he will be sorely missed.

Carl is survived by his wife, Debbie; his two daughters, Pauline Barco of Philadelphia and Hillary Farris-Williams and husband Rickey of Everett; his son Shayne Barco of Oak Harbor; his five grandchildren, Christina, Taj and Phillip Barco and Colton and Camdyn Williams; his parents, Eugene and Patricia Barco of Venice, Fla., and Adeline Barco of Morton, Pa.,; also, his sister, Clementine Hayburn of Bear, Del.

A memorial service will be Saturday, March 15, at 1 p.m. at Burley Funeral Chapel, Pastor Harold Veldman officiating. Memorials may be made to WAIF (Whidbey Animal Improvement Foundation), P.O. Box 1108, Coupeville, WA 98239. Arrangements and cremation under direction of Burley Funeral Chapel. This obituary may be viewed online at
