Barber was a kind, compassionate man who loved his family, life, animals, the beach, football, and the Lord. He traveled all around the world while in the workplace, and always had adventurous stories to tell when he returned. We know he is in Heaven watching down upon us now and is not in any more pain. We all miss you deeply. Rest in peace Dad, we love you! Please visit our online guestbook for Barber at
