The smiling face on the picture above is that of Rev Dean Barker.
For Forty years he was a British Naval Engineer before retiring and training to be an Anglican Priest in Victor Harbor at St Augustine’s Anglican Church.
He was an extremely Community minded man and resided at 55 Crozier Rd Victor Harbor. He later bequeathed this property to the Community radio station, 90.1 HAPPY FM which is now known as Dean Barker House.
The staff and volunteers will be forever grateful for his ‘heavenly’ kindness.
