Miami-Dade County Commissioner Lynda Bell has spearheaded the co-designation of a section of SW 102nd Avenue at 120th Street as “Paul S. Barrow Avenue” in honor of slain businessman and resident Paul S. Barrow who was killed at his place of work, Devonaire Service & Tire, in the early morning hours of Dec. 16, 2010.

In a moving ceremony surrounded by Barrow’s widow, Audree Barrow; his family members, business associates, friends, and community leaders, Commissioner Bell unveiled the renamed street sign commemorating the life of Mr. Barrow.

“It is such a tragedy to lose a dear and respected member of our community in the prime of life to a random and senseless act of violence,” Commissioner Bell said. “It is altogether fitting and proper that we honor the life of a man who meant so much to so many by immortalizing his memory on a street sign located in the neighborhood where he lived and worked.”
