Brian Clifford Barber, 34, passed away on September 6, 2020.  Brian was born on March 10, 1986 in Mesa, Arizona to Clifford and Diane Barber.  He attended Highland Elementary School, Poston Jr. High, and Mountain View High school.  He enjoyed playing football and baseball.  He was an avid snowboarder who always ran out of time before he tired of riding the snow. Brian was a member of the Boy Scouts and learned to appreciate the great spectacle of nature that God has provided, especially here in Arizona.  He earned the rank of Eagle Scout with two palms.  Some of his favorite scouting activities were hiking, camping, cooking and pioneering.  Playing the guitar was one of his favorite pastimes, but probably his most favorite was spending time at the beach.

Brian is survived by his parents, Cliff and Diane Barber, brothers; Nathan (Jennifer) Barber of New Canaan, Connecticut, Trent (Aimee) Barber of Seal Beach, California, Eric Barber of Alexandria, Virginia, sisters; Elise (Brett) Grover of West Richland, Washington, Tracey (Steve) Scofield of Mesa, Arizona, and Kylie Barber of Washington, D.C. He is also survived by 6 nephews and 7 nieces.

The funeral service will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, September 19 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 2835 East Des Moines, Mesa, AZ., with a visitation beginning one hour prior to the service at 10:00 am. To view the service online please visit:   https://youtu.be/uTxZizK42HY

    This young man was born to a noble family built on a foundation of gospel truth. Brian was taught and loved by wonderful parents and siblings. He now goes ahead of the family to prepare for a family reunion in the distant future (which will likely involve horses and snowboarding). We send our love and support to Cliff, Diane and the family from the Caribbean. May the Lord bless you with the comforting, consoling influence of the Holy Ghost during this trying time and always. We love you!
