HELPER– Seldon LeRoy Barker, age 75, went home to his loving Lord and Savior on Sept. 16, 2018.
He was born Jan. 8, 1943 in Price, Utah to Wesley Raymond and Mary Barker.
Seldon married his best friend, Carole Saccomanno, on May 26, 1962. Later they were blessed with three children.
After graduating from Carbon High School in 1961 he enlisted in the Army Reserves. Seldon was a long-time member of New Life Ministries. He was a hard-working coal miner for 30 years where his passion was to minister to his fellow coal miners.

The only thing that he loved more in this world than sports was his family.
