He kept comrades entertained with stories about his early experiences a child actor (he made an appearance on the popular Sixties TV show “Flipper”), as an airline gate attendant, and as a writer for a popular ancient archaeology publication.

Barker is survived by his son Drew, daughter Sara Barker Rubin, and his son-in-law Neal Rubin. His wife Barbara predeceased him.
