Jerod Roy Barsness

Jerry was born in Minnesota on February 7, 1952. He grew up in Seattle and passed away peacefully at his home in North Bend, WA on January 15, 2013. Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Roy Barsness and LaDonna Barsness Gamba. He is survived by his wife, Debra Landers; brother, Jim Barsness; sister, Jill Crocitto; nieces, Jennifer Crocitto, Michele Crocitto, and Hailey Landers.

Jerry was an audiophile whose infatuation with music and high fidelity audio started with the gift of his first turn table at the age of five. He loved the outdoors, enjoyed camping and was an avid hiker. Jerry was a passionate traveler, who combined his enjoyment of food and wine with his pleasure in visiting different countries and cultures.

He graduated from Rainier Beach High School in 1970, attended both Western Washington University and the University of Washington, remaining a Husky football fan his entire life. He worked much of his adult life at Magnolia Audio Video.

Jerry cared deeply about his family, was a devoted, loving husband, a loyal friend, and a good man. His passing leaves a chasm in our lives. At his request, there will be no formal memorial service.
