Jeffrey Barber Obituary

Jeffrey Jacob Barber

Jun. 9, 1991 – Feb. 8, 2014

Cherished son of Catherine Barber and Carolyn Grundt; beloved brother to Kimberly Martinez, and brother-in-law to Andres Martinez: loving uncle to Marlene, A.J. and Sophia; beloved grandson to Joyce and Ervin Barber. 

Born in Detroit, Michigan, Jeffrey graduated from Sierra High School in Santa Clara, CA.  He was a student at West Valley College, pursuing an AA degree with plans to continue in the field of mathematics and science.

Jeffrey loved animals, and took great pride in caring for them, from an early age on.  He loved hiking, and would often take his much loved dog, Dio for long walks and hikes into the Los Gatos mountains.

He enjoyed the beauty of the outdoors, the peacefulness of the ocean and quiet time with family and friends. His love for his nieces and nephew was unparalleled.

After surviving emergency brain surgery in October, his final months were tough, especially through rehabilitation.  Through it all he remained compassionate and his brave spirit and kind heart touched many people deeply.

Please join family and friends at Willow Glen Funeral Home on 1039 Lincoln Avenue, San Jose, CA on Sunday, February 16.  Public viewing at noon, with a service to follow at 1pm.
