Douglas Barton is the brother of Willis "Bud" Barton, one of our long time Austin PGR riders. His brother served with the United States Marine Corp during the Korean war and there will be a memorial for him tomorrow, March 28th, in Kerrville, Texas. He passed away recently after an illness, and wanted to be cremated and have some of his ashes spread on top of Pykes Peak.
