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.
