I met Quinn through his sister Sharon many years ago. What a loss of a fellow car/truck/tractor/wheeled vehicle guy and someone I remember as humorous and friendly. Our prayers to the extended family for peace and comfort. Tom & Jennie Day

I was saddened to hear the news of Quinn's passing. We grew together on the Colebrook road area. As children, we played and built model cars together, later moving on to small engines, anything that burnt gas and leaked oil. Eventually, real cars and trucks. I was amazed how quickly Quinn learned all things mechanical, he could analyze, dismantle, repair and assemble a VW motor with his eyes closed. Quinn was a good man, great personality, generous with his good advice and did not hesitate to keep his shoulder to the task. My sincere condolences to the Barnhart family.
