Sorry to hear of this. Barney attended SP's engineer training school during my second 'tour' there, 
June-December 1977 but I don't recall working with him 'in the craft'. I seem to recall he had recently
been a  member here on TO's. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

Ronald Zittsmann. What a character ! He did not put up with any crap from the weasels. An avid golfer that was always found on the links in his off time.
Barney was a nick name he earned at an early age. Because he resembled the character from the Flintstones Barney Rubble.
Am saddened by his passing. RIP Barney and don't forget to yell "Fore".

Very sad to hear of Barney's passing.  When APL set up a Quality team with SP to improve APL train service, Barney was selected to be on the team.  He had a lot of excellent input and helped reduce some of the delays associated with train operation.  He will be missed.  Rest in Peace Barney!

Did an obituary appear in any of the Los Angeles area newspapers?
