Francis Joseph Barlow
1946 -2019
Peacefully at the Peterborough Regional Hospital on December 31, 2019.

Joe was one of a kind and brought laughter to any room he entered.
A loving devoted husband and father.

Born in the small mining town of Haileybury, Ontario to the late Basil and Teena Barlow.

In his late teens he went on in life to serve in the U.S. Coast Guard and then to proudly serve the United States Embassy as a U.S. Diplomat in Jordan, and in West Africa.
He had many epic adventures, in many countries over seas with the love of his life and wife of 47 years Diane .

Sadly and forever missed by his daughter Heather Van Blaricom, son in law Bill Van Blaricom , Grandsons Ryan Nelson and Nicolas Nelson. His sister in laws Nancy (Jim) , Barb (Mike) and his brother in law John (Miki).

Joe was extremely excited for the arrival of his first grand child in May of 2020, with great sadness Brielle Rose Francis (Nick and Emma) took the early journey with him on the very same day. (Special thanks to KGH )

Per Joe's wishes there will not be a service. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Joe would want you all to raise a glass (or three) smoke them if you have them and remember the good times.
Special thanks to the Drs and Nurses on floor 5B at the Peterborough Hospital.
