LOREN DAY BARR

SHELBURNE — Loren Day Barr of Shelburne, Vt., passed away surrounded by family on Nov. 5, 2019.
Loren was born Aug. 1, 1939, the son of Merton (Bill) and Lydia Braley Barr of Woodstock, Vt. He attended schools in Woodstock, graduating in 1957, and attended UVM from 1957-1961 while working at Lane Press.

At this time he also returned to school, taking accounting courses at Trinity College and graduating in 1999 with an Associate’s Degree in Accounting.
