In Memoriam

Mark Barr

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the wife, children, and caretakers of beloved chorus member Mr. Mark Sydney Barr. Mark was a kind and gentle soul. He was a former educator and an avid biker who loved his family, who enjoyed travel, who loved music and who loved life. We are grateful he and his wife, Colleen, and their entire family allowed the Amazing Grace Chorus to become a part of their “village.”
