I worked with Alan more than 30 years ago. He was fun, professional and had a good heart for those around him. Really appreciated him and am sorry for the loss for his family.

A great man by any measure. Alan saw so much good in the world and gave freely of himself to those of us who sought his help. Knowing him gave me better insight to what was important. He had a heart large enough for many family, friends and church growers. He always made me smile.

We are so grateful for the love, friendship and service that was shown to us by the Barnards when we moved to Missouri. Brother Barnard always had a joke and a sweet greeting. He included our entire family with his love. We will always appreciate him touching our lives. Our Branch benefitted so much When he served as our Branch President. He really was concerned about every member of our Branch. We all miss him and you are in our prayers.

We had the opportunity to work closely with Alan when he served as the President of the Salem MO Branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Saints. He was a dynamic leader who was loved and respected by all he served. His many talents and quick wit brought a special warmth to the branch. He was never too busy to serve those in need. We count it one of our treasured blessings to have served with and associated with both Alan and Carolyn. They hold a special place in our hearts.
