Jeffrey Alan Barton was born June 19, 1969 in Havre De Grace, Maryland to Arthur and the late Gloria Barton, growing up with brother, Ron and sister, Teresa (Reed) on his grandparents farm in Colora, Maryland. Living his entire life in the Rising Sun area, Jeff married his High School sweetheart, Teresa (Faus), in 1990 and they will celebrate their twenty-forth anniversary in July.
In 1994, they had their first children, a set of twin girls, Cassie and Nicole, then a son in 1996, Will and another daughter Hannah in 2001. Jeff currently works for Maryland American Water Company where he has been employed for twenty one years.
Jeff's interest in sports had him playing in Junior League Football, Little League Baseball and wrestling on the Rising Sun High School Team where he lettered and placed Fourth in States his Junior year and Third in States his Senior year. Also his Senior year, he was County and District Champion.
Accompanying his parents to the lanes as a child when they bowled and his competitive nature, naturally led to Jeff's interest in bowling and he joined a league in 1985 at Ox Grove Lanes, becoming an ABC/USBC member at the age of sixteen.
It wasn't long before Jeff joined more leagues, including the Bill Snavley Scratch League as a roster bowler on the team Duffers Beach with Robert Marshall III, AI Bucchi, Whitey Tout, Jack Dubree, Doug Wilson and Maynard Piddington. Surrounded by these and other great and talented men, many of them Hall Of Famers over the past twenty-five years, Jeff has been fortunate to have been a part of numerous Snavley and other league titles.
All his time at the lanes paid off with Jeff posting a high book average of 222, and currently averages 229 at Blue Hen Lanes, Delaware. Bowling his first 300 April I, 1993 at Harford Lanes in the Sunday Early Mixed League, Jeff went on to bowl twenty-one perfect games in six different centers across three different states in varying Leagues. Within those, 2 were bowled in MSBA Tournaments and 1 in the CHCBA Annual Tournament. In what most would consider an unusual occurrence, Jeff's father, Arthur Barton, brother, Ronald Barton and his step-brother, Stevie Settle each have bowled 300's. In 1995-2005, Jeff became a member of the PBA Eastern Region and bowled in several Regional tournaments throughout the years. (Highest Regional finish-30th )
