Alf Barth

August 5, 1921 — March 1, 2016

Alf Otto Barth, 94 went to be with our Lord March 1st 2016. He was born in Risor, Norway on August 5th 1921. Son of Haakon H. Barth and Emilie Evensen Barth, brother of the late Leif Barth and brother-in-law of the late Allyce Barth. Alf immigrated with his family to the United States in 1928. His family settled in Long Island New York where he and his brother lived to adulthood. Alf was a WWII veteran, serving in the Navy from 1943 - 1946. After receiving an honorable discharge from the Navy, he felt that he had not done enough for his country, so he joined the Army as an officer in the OSS (forerunner of the CIA). He was stationed in Japan during the occupation, serving from 1947, until being honorably discharged in 1950. In 1951 he married Jayne Ingram who predeceased him in 2007. After his military service Alf attended the University of Florida graduating with honors with a degree in architecture. He worked as a school board architect for Polk, Orange and Miami-Dade Counties. He then became the chief architect for Miami-Dade County during the late 60's through the early 80's. In addition to designing schools and many Government buildings in Miami he also designed several Lutheran churches from the Panhandle of Florida to the Florida Keys. Alf was a long standing member of the AIA board of architects. After his retirement from Miami-Dade County, he and his wife Jayne moved to Gulf Breeze, Florida. They enjoyed 20 years of retirement there. Alf loved to play golf twice a week, and follow politics. He was very active in the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and School, which he also designed. Alf is survived by 3 children John, Kathleen and Paul (Dell), 3 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren, nephew William Barth (Karen), their 3 children and 2 grandchildren. Alf was loved by many neighbors and friends and will be dearly missed. There will be a time of visitation at Rose Lawn Funeral Home, in Gulf Breeze on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 from 12:30 to 1:00 PM, followed by burial, next to his late wife Jayne, in Barrancas National Cemetery, Pensacola, Florida at 2:00 PM.
