Donald Mervin Barringer - On August 21, 2020 Don "Bear" Barringer peacefully left us to sing and play his guitar in Heaven. Don served as Corporal (acting Sgt) in the army during the Korean War. He worked at numerous jobs in his life, but music was his passion. Since he was a young man he played, and called square dances, all across New York as well as many other states. He had a following that included multiple generations.

Don was preceded in death by his beloved wife, of 32 years, Flo; sons Cliff and Paul and daughter Janet. He is survived by his children Lynn and Paul Marburger; Stafford and Tricia Barringer; Penny Barringer and Steve Pitonyak; along with 6 grandchildren; 3 great grandchildren; countless extended family and friends. He is also survived by the second love of his life of 33 years Donna Brew; her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren whom he loved as his own.

Arrangements entrusted to Keyser Funeral & Cremation Service, 326 Albany Ave., Kingston, NY 12401, where the family will receive visitors on Thursday August 27, 2020 from 4pm to 7pm.

Uncle Don was one of a kind. He was an amazing musician-never taking professional lessons just playing by ear. His sister Arlita was the same. I remember him playing at numerous family get togethers. He had such joy and gusto while playing no matter how large or small the gathering. He was also a fierce ping pong player not even letting his niece (me) win every now and then. We would set up the table in between the living and dining room on Lounsberry place and hope we didn't break anything. In later years you gave me advice on men and what to look for in a good man. Charles and I just celebrated 30 years ! I wish I could be there with everyone but know my prayers are with you. I know heaven is a more livelier place now with Don playing his music with the angels. Love and miss you, Val

Dad, miss you so much, but you're playing your music for the Lord now. Tell mom and Cliff hello. Love you forever, Tricia

I love you, Papa Bear, and will miss your smiles, stories, and songs. The big family reunions in NY will never be the same without you and your loss will be felt for a long time by many many people. I'm so glad to have had the time I had with you and for our last phone call, singing "Put Another Log on the Fire"...what we remembered of it, at least, lol. Hug Uncle Cliff and Grandma Flo for me! xoxoxoxo, Becca
