Sincere condolences to “Andy’s” wife and family. I was deeply saddened to hear of his passing. I had the pleasure of getting to know Judge Barilla through the Special Court Judges Association. Many a laugh and good cheer were shared by all of us who knew him. State conventions were especially enjoyed as Andy usually brought his lovely wife to share in the various festivities and outings. He will be missed by all. Rest in Peace my friend.

My sincere condolences to the Barilla family. Andy certainly made an impact on his community and Wyoming Valley. He was such a great guy. What a career! It's to bad he had the football injuries or he would have played in the NFL like some of the other Swoyersville boys. I loved hearing his stories when I ran into him on the golf course over the years. May he rest in peace. Vichnaya Pamyat!

Barilla Family; I am very sorry to hear of Andy's passing. May your memories help to carry you through this very difficult time. I spent many hours in the Barilla playground during the Summer months. Mr. And Mrs. Barilla were always incredibly kind to me, my Grandparents, and my Mother. Andy was always there with a kind word and his charismatic smile. Slocum Street will never be the same! Godspeed Andy! With Sympathy; Lisa A. Benevides Luzerne, Pennsylvania

Mrs Barilla and family! I am so sorry to hear of Mr Barilla's passing. He truly was a good man, friend and neighbor. I have many wonderful memories as a kid hanging around your house. As an adult, I received my one and only speeding ticket. I had to go in front of him. Waiting in the hallway he came out of the office and said to me, "your going to jail Mare". Scared me to death. Had my hearing and him in only a way he could tell me "get your foot off the gas or I will kick you in the a*ss". I will never ever forget that and I haven't sped since. You were a great friend growing up with my Dad. Why he called you Jigsy I will never know. Rest in Peace Mr Barilla. Thank you for all that you did for Swoyersville and my old neighborhood!
