Myron C. (Bud) LaBarr passed peacefully in his sleep on January 1, 2024 after a rich life of 95 years. Predeceased by his wife, Margo, he lives on in his children: Maggie Spence (Aspen, CO), Julie LaBarr Gavrilovic and Mick Gavrilovic (Denver, CO), Conley LaBarr (New York, NY), Trace and Monica LaBarr (Phoenix, AZ), and Geoffrey LaBarr (Tucson, AZ). He is also survived by his eight grandchildren: Coleman and Erin Spence, Michael, Laura, and Libby Gavrilovic, and Charlie, Ellie and Maisie LaBarr. Finally, Bud leaves his sister, Margaret Lynch, and many nieces, nephews and friends, young and old.
Born June 29, 1928, in New York, NY. After starting college at SUNY Plattsburgh, he left to join the Navy in 1951, training to be a naval aviator and earning the rank of Lieutenant JG. 

He married Margo McGinness of Brightwaters, NY in the summer of 1959 and settled in Alpine, NJ in 1961, where he was elected Mayor in 1972.

A sales executive for years, Bud eventually started his own firm, MC LaBarr Mining Machinery, specializing in the mining and metallurgy industries and relocated to Tucson, AZ. There, he and Margo made lifelong friends and enjoyed their remaining years playing golf and tennis and watching their family grow and thrive. Bud will be forever remembered for his love of family and friends and his fast, easy sense of humor.
