David’s Obituary David Charles Hathaway, 73 of Barton, died March 27, 2019 at his home surrounded by his family. He was born to Orville C Hathaway and Erma (Bull) Hathaway on May 20, 1945 in Walton, NY. He graduated from Hartwick College in 1967 with a degree in music education.

His rich bass voice will be missed. On December 30, 1967, he married Dorothy May who survives him.

As a member of the Barton United Church he served as deacon, moderator of UCC Congregational meetings, and as treasurer for 25 years. He owned and operated E.M. Brown and Son Inc. for 26 years. Although he lived most of his life in Red Sox Nation, he remained a loyal Yankee fan, true to his roots. After retiring, he enjoyed living on Crystal Lake.
