Braulio was born Dec. 3, 1941, in Lexington to Braulio and Mary (Picon’) Barron.
In 1960 he married Glenda M. Wilcox and they had three children, Braulio (Bob) Glenn III., Stephen (Butch) Paul, and Mary Denise.
In the early-80s, Braulio moved to Greeley, Colo. While in Greeley, Braulio and his companion, Candy, enjoyed outdoor activities along with raising a small herd of cattle (all of whom were appropriately named) along with many cats, chicken, goats, geese, birds and other animals that would wander onto the land.
Braulio’s favorite things in his life involved family and friends. Foremost, he loved to tell stories and appreciated everyone who would listen, especially Tonya who often drove him to medical appointments and cared for him. He looked forward to the Barron Family Reunion so that he could reunite with all of his sisters and other family to reminisce, laugh, and dance to good Latin/mariachi music. He also enjoyed sports, especially fishing and hunting when he had the opportunity and watching baseball and football on TV.
