Henry George “Hank” Barker

February 4, 1934 – January 15, 2017

A long-time member of the Lake of the Woods Gun Club passed away at his residence at the age of 82. Hank was an active member who enjoyed long range rifle shooting and he was good at it. Early mornings on nice summer days, you could find Hank at his favourite bench. He would grin with pride showing that he could keep all his shots on a credit card size target at 385 meters. Hank was kind and generous but preferred not to be recognized for his contributions to the Club. When the regular Rifle Range groundskeeper was swamped with construction, Hank would haul his personal lawn tractor from home and cut the grass. Hank was a thinker, a problem solver, and inventor. His name will be added to the Departed Members Plaque on display in the main club house.
