Adair Genevieve Barron
1951 - 2014, Santa Barbara
Adair knew how to take a day out of ordinary. She drew others into her quest to really notice a day and celebrate it by weaving in adventure and play. You might find her catching grunion at the beach on the full moon—lying in the wet sand clutching the squirmy fish in each hand and calling for someone to bring the bucket—and then frying them up in the back yard for breakfast.
With a Siamese cat in attendance, she dressed up to the max to go out on the town; she surfed, a classic golden California girl; she skied, in stunning Nordic sweaters; she headed up to her Morro Bay cabin, power tools at hand for repairs. Athletic, artistic, handy with tools, she paid attention to now. And it made her smile that bright light of a smile and laugh that infectious laugh.
She is missed. Adair was predeceased by her parents Genevieve Hawkinson and Frederick T. Barron. She is survived by her brother Rick T. Barron, his spouse Shirley Connolly, and their son Noah Barron.
