In memory of
Bernard Lee Barber Jr.
Graveside Services for Mr. Bernard Lee Barber, Jr., 73, of Jacksonville, will be at 2:30 PM on Thursday, May 14, 2020, at Greenlawn Memorial Gardens. The Reverend Robert Fowler will officiate. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at K.L. Brown Funeral Home and Cremation Center. Mr. Barber passed away on May 10, 2020, in Jacksonville, after a valiant battle with Anaplastic Astrocytoma, a form of brain cancer. Mr. Barber was a native of Birmingham, Alabama and a graduate of Jacksonville State University. Lee was an educator in every sense of the word. Throughout his teaching career, he was driven by compassion for his students and was tireless in his efforts to equip them to the knowledge needed for success beyond the classroom. Retirement allowed Lee to devote even more time to his lifelong passion for vintage automobiles and all things historic. If you were fortunate enough to visit him at Timeless Treasures Antique Mall where he was a dealer for over twenty years, you came away richer for the experience. Lee was well loved by his many friends for his wealth of knowledge, his multi-faceted talents and abilities, his keen wit, and his willingness to share those many gifts with those around him. Mr. Barber is preceded in death by his parents, Annie Lorene Armfield Barber and Bernard Lee Barber, Sr. He is survived by Wayne Ledbetter; a sister, Carole Smith and her husband, Jimmy, as well as one nephew, Mack. Lee will be greatly missed by everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. Pallbearers will be Bob Couch, Tim Mitchell, Thom Cole, Gary Wigington, Richard Smith, and Bill Garland. Honorary pallbearer will be Peyton Wigington. The family wishes to thank Dr. Michael Hanna as well as Encompass Hospice for the care given to Mr. Barber. Flowers will be accepted or memorials may be made to Samaritan's Purse, PO Box 3000, Boone, NC 28607 ( www.samaritanspurse.org ). Online condolences may be made to the family at www.klbrownfuneralhome.com. K.L. Brown Funeral Home and Cremation Center 322 Nisbet Street NW Jacksonville, AL 36265 (256) 435-7042
