Daniel Bert Barrett | Obituaries

Daniel Bert Barrett, born Aug. 28, 1929, passed away peacefully Tuesday, April 13, 2021 at his home in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Bert is at home in peace with his beloved wife of 67 wonderful years, Mary Carla Barrett.

He is survived by his son, Marvin Daniel Barrett of Key Largo, Florida; daughter; Rhonda Sue King and son-in-law, Rick King of Sevierville, Tennessee; grandchildren; Jennifer Arnold, Elizabeth Young, Jarrod Arnold, Jocelyn Tiedemann, and Cheryl McBay. He is also survived by 8 lively and very loved great grandchildren.

Bert Barrett, born in Cairo, Georgia, and moved to Miami, Florida as an infant. He met and married the love of his life, Carla, and built a life in Miami.

Bert was an avid builder of homes, boats, and always, his beloved street rods. He owned Par Construction Co. in Miami, and built homes all over southern Florida. He retired at 49 and moved to the Florida Keys to build commercial fishing boats, always named after his beloved Carla B, and became a lobster and stone crab fisherman.

Always looking forward to the next great adventure, Bert and Carla retired (once again) and moved to southern Georgia and eventually to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

Working side by side, they were involved in many business ventures throughout their lives together. They were very involved in the Gatlinburg Craftsman’s Fair for years which led to buying the “Soda Fountain” in the Arts and Crafts Community. The Smoky Mountain Cruisers was a great pastime for Bert and Carla due to their love for vintage street rods.

Private services were held for the family. Online condolences may be made at www.atchley
