Commissioner Lynda Bell co-designates Paul S. Barrow Avenue

County Commissioner Lynda Bell, co-designated a section of S.W. 102nd Avenue and 120th Street as "Paul S. Barrow Avenue" - in honor of slain resident Paul S. Barrow who was killed at his place of work in the early morning hours of December 16, 2010.  In a moving ceremony surrounded by Mr. Barrow's wife, Audree Barrow, his family members, business associates, friends, and community leaders, Commissioner Bell unveiled the renamed street sign commemorating the life of the beloved and respected Mr. Barrow.

"It is such a tragedy to lose a dear and respected member of our community in the prime of life to a random and senseless act of violence.  It is altogether fitting and proper that we honor the life of a man who meant so much to so many by immortalizing his memory on a street sign located in the neighborhood where he lived and worked." - Said Commissioner Bell  

Paul S. Barrow, husband, father of three, and co-owner of Devonaire Service & Tire, was randomly and needlessly murdered at his Kendall automotive repair shop on the morning of December 16, 2010.  Mr. Barrow was known and loved throughout his community for his integrity, selfless generosity and devoted community participation.
