David Alan Barrow

May 8, 1950 — May 9, 2024

Covington

David Alan Barrow, of Covington, KY has sadly passed away after a brief illness on Thursday, May 9, 2024, at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Edgewood, KY one day after celebrating his 74th birthday.

He was born in Covington, KY on May 8, 1950, the son of the late Herbert and Mary Barrow. David attended Holy Cross High School and worked nearly 40 years as a machinist and safety coordinator for General Electric. Away from work, David passion was being part of the Flying Cardinals of Northern Kentucky, a radio control flying airplane club, where he would often compete in shows and displays of skill. David was also a social butterfly and never met a stranger. He was the type of person who would offer you the shirt off his own back if you needed it. David amassed a lot of friendships over the years and loved meeting up and hanging out. His greatest joy, however, came from spending time with his beloved family whom he cherished deeply.

Preceding David in death were his parents and his brother, Ronald (Linda) Barrow.

Those left surviving to carry on David’s memory include his one true love and mother of his children, Linda Barrow; caring daughters, Nikki (James) Hoffman and Holly (Randy) Murphy; sister, Patty Smith; brother, Jeffrey Barrow; grandchildren, Samuel Barrow, Emily Warren, Logan Snider, Kailee Murphy, Kaidence Murphy, Levi Murphy, and Kenzie Murphy; as well as many other relatives and close friends who are now emptier upon his sudden passing.
