Dick Barton RIP

Post by Dean » Sat Apr 20, 2013 5:56

We regret to pass on the sad news that Dick Barton passed away on the 9th April 2013.
Dick was, of course, responsible for The Barton Hardtop and other interesting and useful add-ons for the Moke back in the 1960's sold through his Barton Motor Company in Plymouth.
Dick was a Moke club member and was also a recipient of a Moke Club Honorary Gold badge in 2010.
His funeral is on Monday 22nd April at the Counties Crematorium, Northampton at 12:30pm and Moke Club members are welcome to attend.
An obituary will feature in Moking issue 137 (136 has already gone to press).

This a sad loss indeed,i first met Dick in 2009 at Hollowell, his grand son bought him to the moke club stand and he introduced himself as Dick Barton Morris agent , this being a pun on Dick Barton Special agent which i belive at the time was a show on the TV in the 60s he gave me many hours of moke intrest and an insight into his life.
