Obituary for Stanley Wayne Barker

Stanley Wayne Barker, born August 31st, 1937, age 80 years young from Coulee City, Washington, rose from us with grace to be with god in his heavenly kingdom from CHI Franciscan Hospice House in Tacoma, Washington on Saturday, February 10th, 2018. Stan helped lead countless lives to The Lord through Youth For Christ and his strong faith has left lasting impressions on many. He was a shining example of the love of Jesus through his infectious smile and unwavering, unconditional love. After graduating from Fife High School in 1955 and serving as a medic in the Airforce, he became a leading businessman in Puyallup who valued giving back to his community. In 1962, he met and married the love of his life, Karen Prindel ‘Ms. Tacoma’ 1962. One of Stan’s proudest moments was standing beside Billy Graham and Johnny Cash as an honored guest in the Kingdome where over 74,000 people were in attendance. Years prior, Stan had come to Christ at a Billy Graham crusade at the age of 17 and never looked back. Through his faith he mentored many in life and in love, his family being his greatest achievement.

Preceded in death, he was met at The Holy Gates by Son Keith Barker, Father Linford Barker, Mother Rachel Nelson, and Brothers Gordon and Richard Barker.
He is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Karen Barker, Father-In-Law Bill Funkhouser, Daughter Jonel Bond and her husband Chris, son Jason Barker and his wife Debra, Grandchildren; Devon, Chayce, Hope and Duncan, Faith and Austin, Erin, Taylor, Beau, Ali, and Johnny, 3 great-grandchildren, Brother Spencer Nelson and wife Janice, Doug Nelson and wife, Sharon, Brother-In-Law Dale Prindel and wife Rita, Sister-in-law Delonna Winn and husband Mike and countless nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends are among those who continue to carry his influence.

Celebration of Life service will be held 10:00AM Saturday, March 3, 2018 at Champion Centre, 1819 E 72nd St, Tacoma, WA 98404.
