Help ABC Honor Tim Barton

Support My Turn and their work to assist economically, socially and educationally disadvantaged youth.


Tim Barton, longtime leader at DECCO and ABC, the ABC SIG and the Gould Construction Institute, passed away suddenly last month at just 64.   Tim’s passing is a huge loss on so many levels, and the Chapter and SIG Boards of ABC MA and ABC NH/VT, as well as the GCI Board are united in wanting to honor Tim by supporting an organization and a cause that was a passion of his.   The organization is My Turn, a not-for-profit based in Manchester, NH,  and the cause is providing opportunity to young people in need of some help.  


In working with My Turn on pre-apprenticeship programs for DECCO, Tim developed a strong and close relationship with the organization and the young people it serves and helped a number of individuals become successful apprentices with new skills and confidence.   There were few mentors better than Tim!  


Tim’s family has requested that those wishing to pay tribute to Tim do by contributing to My Turn.  The ABC Chapters are making donations to My turn in Tim’s honor and we would ask our member to please consider doing so as well using the link below.
