A fireman, Korean War veteran, and a real estate broker for Ramsey-Shilling for over 40 years, former Toluca Lake Chamber of Commerce President Jim Barrett passed away June 9th, 2014. He was a former professional baseball player, as well as a “Legendary” Little League and Senior Manager for Toluca Lake Little League. He changed the lives of so many young men who played baseball for him — a coach forever.
He was also a wonderful family man, grandfather, and friend, who was loved by all who knew him, especially those in the Toluca Lake community. You could not ask for a better friend than Jim Barrett!
He is survived by wife Margaret; sons Jim, John, and Dennis; daughter Kelly; and numerous grandchildren.
