Gil Barden

Hello Fruit Growers,
Most of you have probably heard that Gil Barden died last Thursday after an accident on the farm. Gil was a great grower and a great friend to many of us. I’ve known Gil for 40 years and he has always impressed me with his apple growing knowledge and his willingness to help others. We will miss him dearly.
Calling hours are on Friday June 2nd from 3-7 at Tucker and Quinn Funeral Chapel at 643 Putnam Pike in Greenville. The funeral will be private.
I know the RI Fruit Growers will do everything they can to help Sandie Barden get through the season.
