Words are inadequate to express the grief I, and the entire B’nai Israel family, feel at the loss of our precious Gil Barron. Seeing Gil each Shabbat, hearing him at the Bima, sharing Kiddush, and just seeing his smile meant the world. We loved sharing his birthday each year as we celebrated his ever youthful spirit and joy. A small piece of the Barron family history graces the synagogue’s descendants day site celebrating the role of your family in both B’nai and the entire Baltimore community. Anyone who attended college, did graduate work or was employed in downtown Baltimore happily remembers being sustained by lunches from Barron’s Deli in the Market. Gil remains a Baltimore and B’nai treasure. When we can reopen the sanctuary at the synagogue again I hope that the Barron family will return to the shul to truly celebrate our beloved Gil Barron and share memories in person at a kiddush in his honor. Truly, I can think of no one more deserving of being honored by our community. May his memory be a blessing to you

I knew Gill through my Aunt Billie and Cousin Fred. He always greeted us with a smile and kind words. May his family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Yerushaliam.

As a grandson and great nephew of my own family members who had businesses in the golden age of Baltimore , and cousin of others and decorated WWII vets who had deli/ meat businesses similar to yours in Union Market DC, I always regaled trading stories with the great elderly personalities that made Jewish downtown what it was and should have always been and gave back. We've lost some real greats this year. Gil was one of the last and best and I must say I admired him even more as one of the yungeleit who helped him navigate the services a little better and looked out for him. We're all better for having known him, without a doubt ; an era has truly ended but the memories of this entire generation will surely never fade away

Dear Carolyn and Family,
I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Gil was a lifelong cherished friend. From meeting as teenagers at Gleiman's Drug Store, to years supporting our businesses at Lexington Market, to recent days at North Oaks. I will miss my friend. Wishing you peace and warm memories.

My deepest sympathies to Carolyn and the rest of the family for your loss. I got to know Gil through my job in the North Oaks fitness center, and his many, many walks on the treadmill. I always enjoyed talking with him and hearing his stories anytime he came in to workout. He was beyond kind to me and was a genuine pleasure to be around. My heart goes out to Carolyn, and the rest of his family. Thank you for sharing him with us.

Carolyn, You and Gil were such good friends and fellow canoers with my mom and stepfather, Flo and Sy. I have many fond memories of times shared together. In recent years, Gil always greeted me so joyfully when our paths crossed at North Oaks. I’m sending virtual hugs. May his memory be of a blessing.

My deepest condolences to the entire family. While our paths crossed but briefly, Gil left an indelible impression. A good businessman, devoted family man and pious member of the community; a person could do well following his example. My loss that our paths didn't cross more.
May the family only know the warmth of good memories and may his name always be for a blessing.

Please accept my deepest condolences. Our families go way back to Beth El Hebrew school days. My sister Beverly (besides being friends with Laurie) worked at Lexington Market for Mr. Barron. I was so happy to see and talk to Mr. Barron at North Oaks! What a reunion! I know that his memory will always be for a blessing!

Carolyn, Laura, Ava, and Marc,
My deepest sympathy to you on the loss of your beloved, Gilbert. Gilbert was a second cousin of my husband, and I always enjoyed chatting with him at family gatherings and at B"Nai Israel. He approached everyone with a smile and a warm greeting. It was obvious that family was a central part of his life, and I know he will be truly missed by so many.

Dear Barron family:

Gil was my father’s best friend, one of my earliest bosses at the Lexington Market, and a good friend to me later in life. I enjoyed our Yom Kippur’s spent chatting during the breaks, and our trips to various casinos with Fred. Gil led the services at both of my parent’s Shiva houses. I cannot think of Gil without smiling. I will miss him tremendously.

Dear Barron Family,.
I am so sorry for your loss. Gil was a client of mine in the early 80’s. Whenever I would meet with him at Lexington Market, he made sure I was served a delicious corned beef sandwich. It was the best! Gil was a wonderful person who I always enjoyed conversing with when we attended services. I will miss him. May his memory always be a blessing.

Dear Family,
I remember seeing Gil and Carolyn at all of the Schechter programs for Ori, Evan, Daniel and Ben. I also remember greeting them on Shabbat mornings at Chizuk. But most of all, I remember how beautifully Laura and Ava took care of their dad. Wow! They set the bar for כבוד אב ואם !
May God bless this beautiful family, and may the memory of Gil bring you strength and joy for many years to come.

I am so sorry to hear of Gil's passing. He was a true mensch. I will always remember his davening at B'nai Israel's Shabbat services on Lloyd Street over many, many years. Gil aways seemed to have a smile on his face, and a kind word on his lips. He was happy to contribute in anyway to our shul. He will be deeply missed. I wish to express my condolences to his family. May his memory be a blessing to all who knew him.

To the Barron Family,
I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved Gil. It was nice to see him in shule at times with Ava and family, and I remember him driving around in his cute little sports car when we all lived on Byron Rd. in days gone by. May his memory be a blessing to you and all who loved him.
