Wayne Barth of Warwick passed away on Saturday, Dec. 30, 2017, at St. Anthony Community Hospital in Warwick. He was 83 years old.

Born on Nov. 17, 1934, in Carbondale, Pa., he was the son of Richard and Ethel Downing Barth.

Wayne had a passion for driving trucks that started the day he became an owner-operator for 42 years with Teamsters Union 917 in Newark, N.J. The Queen Village Queens played an important part of Wayne's life as he was their driver and a mentor to many.

He was the former owner of Acorn Pub in Monroe, a member of Greenwood Lake Elks Club and was involved in the American Legion Post 488 in Monroe for many years.

His family's statement reads: “Wayne enjoyed riding his Harley and playing cards as well as the friends he played cards with, he loved to spend time with his family and his dog Gracie.”

The family would like to thank all those who cared for Wayne, his caregivers, Reid, his nieces, his nephews and the volunteers at the Warwick Ambulance.

He is survived by his wife Marie Barth of Warwick; his daughters Cynthia Barth of the Outer Banks, N.C., Debra Gorish and her husband Otto of Florida, N.Y., and Susanne Barrett of Largo, Fla., his son Wayne S. Barth of Warwick; his sister Maureen Grisez of Fort Lee, N.J.; his grandsons Otto Gorish and John Barrett; his granddaughters Rena Marr, Shana Myers, Erica Barth, Sierra Barth and Melissa Barth along with six great grandchildren. He is predeceased by his grandson Frank Spargo.

Visitation was held Jan. 3 at Lazear-Smith & Vander Plaat Memorial Home in Warwick.

A funeral service was held Jan. 4 at the funeral home. Interment followed at Warwick Cemetery.

Memorial donations may be sent to Warwick Volunteer Ambulance, PO Box 315, Warwick, NY, 10990.
