Sunday, December 18th, 2022, Gilchrist County lost another one of their own way too soon. Kelly J. Barron (45 years old), passed peacefully in his sleep while on a fishing trip to his favorite place in the world. He was born on February 10, 1977, to Sandy Barron and Marcella Gentry. Kelly lived by his favorite quote, "It is what it is" and with that mindset he seemed to make the best out of most any situation. His passing has left a gaping hole in the community where he is deeply loved by many.
