James Franklin, born August 22, 1966. Beloved son of Catherine (nee McCullum) Barlow and the late Donald Barlow. Cherished brother of Les Barlow, Linda (Bill) Haas, Donald Barlow II and Tonya (Gene) Shephard. Loving uncle to 16 nieces and nephews and numerous great-nieces and nephews.

A gentle spirit, young at heart and mind and ever to be a child who was loved and who touched the hearts of all he met. A smile you had to respond to. A lover of bear hugs, all cars, trucks, fire, police, and trains. Always enjoyed being with the young kids and playing right along beside them.
Passed away in his home surrounded by his adoring family on April 6, 2021 at the age of 54.
He will be “Forever in Our Hearts”.
