Andrew J. “Sweetie” Barden, Jr., 67, of Helena, MS

Babe took Sweetie’s boots off for the last time on Thursday, May 23, 2019. Born to the late Willie Mae (Jackson) and Andrew J. Barden, Sr. at home in Lafayette County, FL on March 17, 1952. A.J. was raised in Dixie, FL and a graduate of Dixie High School Class of 1970.

He was a proud member of The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (LU #1205). He joined their apprenticeship program in 1970 and retired in April 2018. He traveled for 23 years across the U.S.A. and met his spouse, Linda “Babe” Barden in the fall of 1997. They traveled the next 22 years enjoying the love, support, and brotherhood across our 50 states with his IBEW brothers and sisters.

Along with his parents, A.J. is preceded in death by his brother, Allen Barden, and his grandson, Dustin Carroll.

He will remain in the hearts and be missed dearly by his Babe; brothers, Derl Barden of Alaska and Doyle (Lujan) Barden of Branford, FL; sisters, Loretta (Jim) Giddings and Marleen (Donald) Valentine, both of Branford, FL; daughters and granddaughters, Lura (Billy) Barden, Renee “NaeNae”, Jenniffer, Brenda, Marinda, Shelby, Morgan, Sheena, Renee, and Elaine; sons and grandsons, Wayne, William, Shane, Bobby, Delone, and Brandon; along with many nieces, nephews, great-grandchildren, and thousands of his IBEW brothers and sisters.
