We are sad to share that our honey vendor, David Barrickman, passed away in home hospice care on Sunday. BRFM vendors, customers and volunteers will miss his always smiling face greeting us each Market Day. And the Indiana honey community will miss their mentor and tireless advocate.
But we are all heartened, none more than David himself, that his legacy will live on. His grandson Skyler grew up helping his grandpa with the hives and has taken over the business. You may remember Skyler from the many times he filled in when David was tied up with other honey commitments.
Please keep David’s family in your thoughts and prayers. For more information, see David’s obituary here.
