I grew up in North Ogden just up the street from this house.

I was born in Ogden and then raised in the mining town of Eureka. What a nice looking family. ❤️U

The house was known for its well kept hedges !

Sometimes it’s real sad to know those boys were headed for 2 World Wars. Challenges the whole family would have to go through. Plus with no one smiling means their teeth were in bad shape

Where are his other kids?

Joseph Ballif Jr. is my father. Tickets sold at Ballif’s store. Very interesting for me.

Loved this station and the Barkers. They also kept my kids bikes and lawn mowers running for free.

When we moved to North Ogden in 62, Wayne Barker became one of my dad’s favorite places to go to . Always bought gas there and other auto related repairs. I needed new tires for my car ( a 67 Mustang) but didn’t have enough cash to pay for them up front so Wayne and Verle let me pay on the time plan. Where else would you find such a place?

Mom would get gasoline at the Barkers service station. I can still hear her ask for Ethyl. My sister and I never missed a chance to go for a ride with Mom. After errands, she’d go to Pinkies to get us each a cone, then we’d go to Barkers where he would give us each a balloon. The best of memories!

Oh yes, great memories. Wayne was always there to help with a bike's flat tire or whatever repair was needed on the car. And of course a stop at the water fountain was mandatory! Don't forget Pinky's!

We always got gas there and had a drink from the fountain. He was a good friend of Dad’s.

They were my dads cousins. He was a North Ogden Barker. He was the owner of Chicks Cafe at 319 24th. Formerly the Big Wheel Cafe across from the old post office. He’s the one wearing the dark shirt standing 3rd from the left. These are his siblings.

My Grandpa and Uncles worked there too. Grandpa was also the schoolbus driver. Iris "Ike" Jones. I have a box full of service invoices in my dirt celler. But I don't think any of them are fit for display. I used to stand on a rock that was placed in front of the stump for the little ones to get a drink. I'm 68 now, and still remember it was the finest water in the world.

Awww... what good memories.

What a great place! Riding my horse by they would ask me if she needed a fill-up. Awesome memories 😉

The best place ever!!!

I saw this! Wayne and Kenny and Was it Vern? I just sent it to Dixie!

Loved Barker’s and the water fountain close by!

Thats where my dad always went for gas.

Amazing how fun it was, sitting on the chair, just hanging out while my cousins worked (Tracy& Glen), uncles & Kenny would work and talk and they all seemed to know everyone who stopped or drove by. Remember the soda chest inside, you could get a cold bottle of soda for a dime! Anyone remember my uncle Wayne’s dog Charlie? Such a cool dog, carried around huge rocks instead of tennis balls!

My Uncles, Wayne and Verle were the best! Even after my husband and I moved to Seattle, the Uncles were always ready with a bottle of pop for me when I visited! I loved them both so much, and miss them still! Wonderful memories!

Great memories of Barker Service!!

Oh my gosh - I do. It was a mainstay for the area. Haven’t thought about Bakers in years. Brought a smile to my face and a giggle to my heart

I remember that little place so well. The nicest people in the world worked there.

The would come to your home to change a tire. Love the Barker Service

That was also where the original stamp for water was

We moved to North Ogden in the 70’s. Started buying gas at Barkers. One visit was all it took for the Barker Brothers to know our name. Both my wife and I were treated like life long friends. In an age where every other gas station on the planet made you pump your own gas the Barkers washed your windows, checked your oil and tires while topping off your tank. They ran the best “Service Station” up to the day they retired.

Ken Wilson worked there. He was so nice did the whole service on your vehicle.

What was that song Mr. Barker was always whistling? I can hear it now.

Those were the days when they pumped the gas, checked your oil & cleaned your windshield. They were so kind & if you were thirsty you could always go to the Stump for a drink of water! ♥️

Went there about 1 million times with my mom
