I
CARL DEAN BARBER, was born December 19, 1937, in Ulysses, Kansas and departed this life January 25, 2013, at his home in Lebanon, Missouri, at the age of seventy-five years, one month and six days.

Carl was the son of Carl Zeddick and Juanita Mildred Hoskinson Barber. He grew up in Ulysses and graduated from high school there in 1955.

In 1957, Carl joined the United States Navy and served his country faithfully for twenty years, which included three tours in Vietnam.

In 1960, he married Priscilla Moore and to this union was born two sons, Carl Dean II and Mark Allen. On April 7, 1973, he married Ann Tucker and became the father of James.

Carl retired from the Navy in 1976, and he, Ann and the children made their home in Orlando, where he was employed by the state of Florida Department of Agriculture. He graduated Cum Laude from Florida Southern College in 1980. He later worked for Pan Am World Airways on the Eastern Test Range at Ascension Island in the South Atlantic Ocean for several years.

Carl accepted Christ as his personal savior as a child and followed him in baptism. He was a member of the Second Baptist Church, and remained active and faithful, until his health failed.

He enjoyed barbecuing, prior to his health failing. His church family and many others in the community enjoyed his barbeque and especially his whole hog barbeques.

In 1987, Carl and Ann purchased a small farm in Lebanon, Missouri and he worked for the state of Missouri and later with Civil service at Fort Leonard Wood, retiring from there in 1999.



Carl was active in the community and held membership with several organizations. He was a member of Gideons International, Laclede Lodge #83 AF & AM, American Legion Post, V.F.W. and D.A.V. The friendships he made with other members were unmatched. He treasured each of them.

He had a variety of pastimes including fishing, hunting, playing golf and taking care of his cattle on the farm. He later sold the farm due to his health.

Carl is survived by his wife Ann of the home; three sons, Carl Dean Barber II and his wife Denise, of High Ridge, MO, Mark Allen Barber of St. Louis, MO and James Ronald Tucker, also of St. Louis, MO; his mother, Juanita Barber Adair of Ulysses, KS; one sister, Deloris Rensch and her husband Edward of Canton, OK; five grandsons, William Barber and his wife Crystal, Cameron and Derek Tucker, Matt and Mark Myers; one granddaughter, Cheyenne Barber; two great-grandchildren, Makayla Barber and Drake Myers; other relatives and many friends.

RESTING PLACE
Mount Rose Memorial Park







God saw he was getting tired
And a cure was not to be;
So he put his arms around him,
And whispered, “Come with me.”
With tearful eyes we watched him suffer,
And saw him fade away;
Although we loved him dearly,
We could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest;
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best!
