Barry Mortenson

Barry “Bear” Walter Mortenson was taken home to rest in peace with his Heavenly Father on March 28, 2016.

He was born Sept. 10, 1956. Bear worked in the construction field as an electrician and was also a ranch hand. He would also do odd jobs and help all of those who he knew were in need.

Bear lived in Santa Clara for 10 years and met his friend and soulmate, Maryanne Morro. They were joined in wedlock 23-1/2 years later as husband and wife and then moved to Mariposa.

Bear is survived by his loving wife, Maryanne; son, Steve; only brother, Billy Mortenson; a sister-in-law, Arlene; and several nieces and nephews. Also surviving are his three four-legged children, PJ, Peedy and Precious.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 16, 2016, at the United Methodist Church on Sixth and Bullion streets in Mariposa. A potluck gathering will follow in Parish Hall.

He is loved and remembered by all.
