Michael Barber

Loving, caring, handsome, smart, energetic

My beautiful boy Michael (my son) lost his battle with addiction at age 30 on 5/11/14.

He was the best son I could have ever hoped for! He was a loving brother and an uncle to two nephews that he adored.

He was loving, caring (always helping others), funny and creative, handsome, smart, energetic, athletic (football, wrestling, baseball, street hockey), loved animals, and nature. Those who knew him were instantly drawn to him by the angelic aura that completely surrounded him from the day he was born.

After struggling for 8+ years with addiction (opiates prescribed by an unethical doctor) his body could no longer handle the abuse, shame and depression - he passed away on Mother's Day 2014. Our family is heartbroken forever....

I am proud to say he was an organ donor and has saved the lives of four men!! A true testament of the wonderful person he was.

He was brought to us by angels; temporarily taken by the devil; and in the end, saved by the superior love and enormous strength of God! Rest in peace my dear sweet Bubba! Loved and missed dearly by all, every minute of every day. We keep his memory alive by talking about all of the good times. XOXO
