Former Police Captain’s Son Recalled With Fondness

Today’s Arizona Star, in a story headlined “People he never met called him buddy and mate, friend and mentor,” tells of the 37-year-old son of a former Westport police captain who died suddenly of a heart attack in July.

“David Barr freely gave away his talents and died too young,” the newspaper said in the Tucson-datelined story.

Barr’s father, Fred, retired from the Westport force and moved with his wife to Arizona two years ago. Their son David accompanied them.

“(David) Barr, a high-school dropout and self-taught auto mechanic, photographer and computer programmer, had a rich online life that parents Fred and Nancy Barr never glimpsed until his death,” the newspaper said.
