Richard Barron

(1925-1972). Evangelist. He was born and reared in California. When very young he dedicated his life to the Lord and was baptized at the age of 9. As a child he would line up chairs on the front porch and “preach” to the “congregation” on Sabbath afternoons. After his graduation from La Sierra College in 1945, he married Jeanne Bickett and began his work as pastor of the Hawthorne, California, church. After attending an evangelistic workshop in Texas, he joined with his brother in full-time evangelism. In 1960 the Barron-Turner evangelistic team was formed.

He died in the crash of a small plane he was piloting near Walla Walla ...
