R’ Baruch was the father of Rabbi Meir bar Baruch, known as the Maharam of Rothenburg.
The Maharam overshadowed his father with his greatness, therefore it is said that the Maharam wouldn’t visit his father, so as not to put his father in a situation, where he will have to give honor to his son, due to his son’s status.
