Joseph "Joe" Michael Barina

May 3, 1940 — December 16, 2023



Joseph (Joe) Barina, age 83, died December 16 at Community South Hospital after losing his battle with Covid.


He leaves behind his wife of 59 years, Beverly, daughters Cherie and Carissa and their respective husbands D.R. Foley and Scott Bacon; sisters Joanne Miller, Judy Ploeger and Jean Barina.  Last but not least, his grandchildren Rachel and Mara Foley and Alexandra and Brendan Bacon. 


Joe was a Navy veteran and retired after 35 years from ABF Freight System as Regional Vice President. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, boating and golfing and a lifetime member of Dyes Walk Golf and Country Club.


  Joe was definitely the patriarch of the family and always there to support and advise.  His friends will remember him for his wry sense of humor.  Joe lived a full life and will be deeply missed but the memories he helped create will live on.


His wishes were for a private, family only burial.  Services entrusted to O’Riley – Branson Funeral Service & Crematory, 6107 S. East Street, Indianapolis, IN 46227.
