I was an Air Force ROTC student at the University of New Hampshire from 1963-1967. Lt Col Barbee was the Professor of Aerospace Studies my senior year. I was called into his office to interview for the Distinguished Military Graduate award. I distinctly remember one of his questions to me was how to spell " seize " and " siege ". I was unsure at the time and may have taken a guess, but looking through my college dictionary I have pencil marks next to those words. I noticed Lt Col Barbee's name in the MOAA magazine " In Memoriam " section and immediately recalled this event.

Lynne and family, We are sad to hear about your Dad. Terry remembers staying at your parents home years ago. I never had the pleasure of meeting your Dad, but made me smile when I read the tribute on this site. Remember we love you.
Mr. Barbee was our English teacher at Maplewood Richmond Heights high school, Maplewood, MO - class of 1950. He attended our reunion a few years ago and was an honored speaker - we could have listened to him for hours - thank you, Mr. Barbee - and our condolences to the family.

Sorry to hear about Mr. Barbee's passing, He was a great person who told me many of his life stories. I am blessed and honored to have known such a great man. Gone but never forgotten. May he rest in peace
