Barre was a true amateur astronomer who loved giving children their first view of Saturn through a telescope. His storytelling was without peer. His presence will be sorely missed. Thank you, Barre Spencer.

Barre and I have been friends for many years, and he will be missed, by both Debbie and myself. As well as so many in the amateur astronomy community. We talked on the telephone on a regular basis. We love Barre…
