July 13, 1956-March 23, 2010
Don’t stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on the snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you wake in the morning hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight
I am the soft starlight at night
Don’t stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep.
Poem at the entrance of the Stewart Family Cemetery.

MARTINSBURG — Robert E. Barndollar Jr., 53, of Martinsburg passed away March 23, 2010.

Bobby enjoyed riding his motorcycle as did his father, Bob, and his grandfather, Arthur. He enjoyed hunting and fishing with his brother and his cousins in Kentucky. He loved the beauty of nature from sunrise to sunset. He is a proud veteran of the U.S. Navy where he was trained as a boiler technician. He later worked at the Newark Air Force Base for many years. Bobby enjoyed spending time with his friends and family where he loved to tell a story or two. He had an excellent memory for detail.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Wilbur and Eliza Montgomery Carty; his paternal grandparents, Arthur and Martha Stewart Barndollar; his parents, Robert E. Barndollar and Tressie Barndollar Charles; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

He is survived by his special friend, Sandy Jobes of Martinsburg; his son, Robert Barndollar III of Newark; sister, Loretta Snoke of Newark; brother, Rodney (Jackie) Barndollar of Owensville, Mo.; and special cousins, Richard Carty and Randy Carty of Means, Ky. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Jacob, Annie, Brianna and Alyvia, whom he dearly loved. He is survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews who loved him.

A graveside service will be held on a later date at the Stewart Family Cemetery in Clearfield, Ky., where military honors will be observed.
In lieu of flowers, the family would ask that memorial donations be made in Bobby’s name to Hospice of Central Ohio. We are grateful for their kindness and support.
