UPDATE, more information I just received about the arrangements:

There is a memorial service and reception planned for Saturday, October 21, at 1:00pm to 3:30pm

Newton Highlands Congregational Church
54 Lincoln St, Newton, Massachusetts

We will be compiling a memory book to be shared at the memorial. If you would like to share a brief memory, anecdote or photograph, please sent it to Chris Barker at [email protected]

Please understand Betsy’s wish to not be overwhelmed with gifts, flowers or phone calls.

In lieu of flowers, we would very much support any assistance to the “The Rodney Barker Social Action Fund”, guided by Betsy, and administered by his church. The fund will be used to support causes dear to Rodney and Betsy’s hearts.

Original Post:

Barker was a member of the first Newton Highlands Area Council, president of the Hyde School PTO, spent eight years as a member of the School Committee and twelve years on the Board of Alderman. Details on his services will be posted as they become available.
