Kenneth E. Barrick, 87, of Carlisle, died Saturday, February 20, 2010, in the Carlisle Regional Medical Center. He was born on Friday, November 10, 1922, in Carlisle, and was a son of the late Samuel E. and Mabell (Behnings) Barrick. He was married more than 60 years to the late Pauline M.

Ken was a veteran of WWII, and served in the Army Air Force as a Staff Sergeant and an aircraft inspector. He retired after 32 years of service as an inspector of repaired vehicles with the Mechanicsburg Naval Supply Depot.

He was a member of Grace United Methodist Church, where he was a former usher, the Elks Lodge 578 and V.F.W. Post 477 all of Carlisle. Ken was preceded in death by five brothers; Leroy, Luther, Paul, Ralph and Raymond Barrick and one sister, Dorothy Hair.

He is survived by two sons; Ken J. (and his wife, Jackie) Barrick and Frank L. (and his wife, Stacy) Barrick both of Carlisle, three grandsons; Darrell, Josh and Hunter Barrick, who affectionately called him "Pap" and several nieces and nephews.

 Dear Frank, Stacy, Josh and Hunter...
Thoughts and prayers are with you all. I know how much "Pap" meant to all of you. I will never forget his stories of the days when Pauline watched the boys and we would see them at Wendy's having lunch...he loved his boys!
