Antique Vintage 18

Gene Robert Barth

April 13, 1952 ~ June 11, 2022 (age 70)


          Gene Robert Barth, 70, of Dillsboro, IN passed away Saturday, June 11, 2022 at The Christ Hospital with his loving family by his side. Gene was born on Sunday, April 13, 1952 in Batesville, IN; son of Russell and Mabel (Carroll) Barth.  He was raised on the family farm in Olean, IN.  Gene owned and operated Gene's Auto Body Shop in Dillsboro, IN for over 40 years.   Gene married Mary Jane (nee Graver) Barth on May 26, 1990.  Gene was a member of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Dillsboro for 25+ years.  He enjoyed antiques, antique cars, model cars and Lionel trains, NASCAR, and going to car shows.  His greatest passion in life was spending time with family/friends and working on cars.
          Gene will be missed by his sons, Jason Wade Barth (Erin) of Dillsboro, IN, John Raymond Niemeyer (Jodie) of Palm City, FL, and Michael Lee Niemeyer of Canton, MI; daughters Desiree Renae (nee Barth) McClanahan (John) of Lebanon, OH and Angela Marie (nee Jewett) Banschbach (Gerald) of Lawrenceburg, IN; sister Shirley Jean Barth of Versailles, IN; and seven grandchildren, Riley and Sydney Barth, Megan, Noah and Jordan Niemeyer, Emily and Allison Seward.
         Gene was preceded in death by his parents, Russell and Mabel; and wife Mary Jane.
          Family and friends may gather in remembering Gene from 5:00-7:00PM on Thursday, June 16, 2022 at Trinity Lutheran Church, 9901 Central Ave, Dillsboro, IN 47018.  A service will be held at 10:00AM on Friday, June 17, 2022 also at the church with Rev. Richard Kolaskey officiating. The family would like for anyone who has an antique car to please drive to the funeral and procession to the grave site at Oakdale Cemetery.  I am sure Gene would be looking down upon them with a big grin on his face.  Memorials may be given in honor of Gene to the Dillsboro Community Partnership-Car Show and Dillsboro Civic Club.
