Phillip (Phil) Edward Barringer, Sr., a long-time resident of St. Charles, Missouri, was born on December 12, 1936, near Ava, Illinois, and died on September 27, 2021, in St. Louis, Missouri, after a long struggle with dementia. Phil, who was the fifth of the seven children of Mabel and Andrew Barringer, grew up in East St. Louis, Illinois, graduating from East St. Louis High School, where he played basketball and ran track. He was always known as a fun-loving guy who worked laying carpet and as a truck driver before finishing his career as a distribution manager for the Schnucks main bakery. Phil is survived by his children, Phil (Lisa) Barringer, Jr., of St. Charles, Missouri, Gary Barringer of St. Charles, Missouri, and Lizz Barringer (Bob) Lagomarsino of Sacramento, California. He took particular pride in and enjoyed following Phil and Lizz’s athletic achievements and Gary’s musical accomplishments. Phil is also survived by his grandchildren, Nicole (Andy) Weisman of Lake St. Louis, Missouri, Sarah Barringer of St. Charles, Missouri, Blake Barringer of St. Charles, Missouri, and Nathan Barringer of St. Charles, Missouri, and his brother Lee (Connie) Barringer. He was preceded in death by his parents (Mabel and Andrew) and siblings, Lyle (Laverne) Barringer, Lois (Ralph) Johnson, Frieda (John) Feuerbacher, Edith (Jerry) Wood, and Hazel (Alan) Deutsch. Phil's family has remained tight-knit, with his children and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family scattered geographically throughout Missouri, Illinois, Georgia, Utah, and California, but tied together with a Barringer family bond that always keeps them close.
Phil will be interred at Lake View Memorial Gardens, Fairview Heights, Illinois, with his parents.
