Obituary

Norman T. Barrett

Avon- December 18, 2019 at the age of 82. He is predeceased by his wife Marcia Barrett. He is survived by his sister-in-law Faye M. Watkins, his children John and Janice Barrett, Robert and Anne Barrett, Daniel and Lynne Barrett, Grandchildren Janey (Kevin) Keenan, Jolene (Sam) Rugg, Whitney (Jeff) Jackson, Adam (Mary) Barrett, Maxwell (Mackenzie) Barrett, Samuel Barrett and Shawn Barrett, Joseph (Annika) Burchill, Kaitlyn Burchill, 8 great -grandchildren; brothers, John (Jane) Barrett, Arthur Barrett, Don (Gail) Barrett; several nieces and nephews

Norm was the youngest of eight sons of George and Isabell Barrett. Except for part of his childhood, Norm lived most of his life in Avon. He graduated from Avon Central School in 1955 and attended North Louisiana State on a football scholarship, and then Brockport State. He and Marcia married in 1957. His career was centered in the construction trades, working first for Pavilion Gas, followed by 10 years for Keegan Utilities of Rochester, then five years as Village of Avon Superintendent of Public Works. He was DPW Superintendent for the Village of Geneseo from 1972-1973, leaving that position only because residency was a requirement and his family did not want to leave Avon. In 1973, Norm established his own business, Livingston Construction Company, Inc., specializing in excavation, paving and water systems work. For 17 years his construction company had contracts for water system maintenance for both the towns of Rush and Avon. Through Livingston Construction and later as Avon Town Water Superintendent, Norm oversaw the maintenance and growth of the Town of Avon water system for 28 years. After retiring from the Town of Avon, Norman was hired as the Town of York Water Superintendent for a number of years.

Norm was a generous and dedicated community volunteer, especially focused on youth. He served on the Avon Central School Board from 1984 – 2000 and was board president for 12 of those 14 years. He served over 15 years on the Genesee Valley BOCES Board. A sports enthusiast, Norm believed children could learn many important life lessons on a sports team and generously volunteered time and talents to youth sports activities. He was a Little League coach and co-founder of Avon’s Vince Lombardi youth football league. Livingston Construction Company equipment and crew moved donated bleachers from Empire Raceway in Leicester and used them to construct a “stadium” at the Avon Central Football Field. He was also largely responsible for the construction of the Avon youth soccer fields on Lake Rd. Norm volunteered his time and video equipment to film nearly every Avon varsity football game for many years to provide footage to coaches to use as teaching tools.

Friends are invited to call Friday, December 20, 2019 from 2-4 and 7-9 PM at the Stephenson-Dougherty Funeral Home Inc.,350 Genesee St. Avon. His Funeral service will be held Saturday, December 21, 2019 at 10am, at the Zion Episcopal Church 10 Park Place, Avon. Interment, East Avon Cemetery. Donations may be made to the Livingston County Hospice, 2 County Campus, Mt. Morris NY, 14510.
