Scott Barr - “B” - was born on July 28, 1968 in Portsmouth, NH to Robert and Joanne Barr formerly of York, currently of Ocala, FL. Scott was a brother to Gary Barr of Greenland, NH and Glenn Barr of East Kingston, NH and was a 1986 graduate of York High School.
As a child Scott was a member of the York Heights B-Force. He hosted neighborhood wiffleball games on what other kids referred to as the Yankee Stadium of the Heights. In school Scott was known for his enjoyment of soccer practice, being part of the bench bunch and being the big tight end over the middle in snow football. It was during these formative years that his peers first began to notice his curmudgeonly yet lovable personality.
Scott married the love of his life Maureen in 1995 at St. Christopher’s in York. They lived in Portland, ME, South Portland, ME, Kittery, ME and ultimately purchased a home on the street where Scott grew up in York, ME.
Scott was a devoted father to his daughter Katie. They loved to get their St. Joe’s bennies on Saturday morning together and hang out at the beach or visit the park. Katie noted that he was very patient and let her put gel in his hair and paint his toenails - though they may not have always dried properly. He has passed on his wonderful sense of humor to his beloved daughter.
He loved working in the yard and had a particular gift with a chainsaw much to the chagrin of his wife. He is one of the very few people who could consistently fell himself in the process of cutting down a tree.
Scott enjoyed spending time with friends and family and was known for his enduring and constant sense of humor with Maureen. He was the best dancer among his friends. While that is nothing to brag about it is something he felt to be important. God forbid “Freebird” came on the radio at your family barbecue.
Scott will be remembered as a wonderful husband to Maureen - a devoted father who loved his daughter Katie - a son who loved his parents Bob and Joanne - the best younger brother to Glenn and Gary - the kind of friend who was always there whether needed or not - the kind of son in law any parent with a daughter would ask for and the kind of Uncle, cousin, brother in law and person that made us all proud to call him ours. In addition to his family and friends Scott will be missed by his ever loyal dog Maisy.
