I remember and cherish the regular, every weekend, golf with Mike and his father, and Don or Jimmy while they were still in New Jersey.
The youngest of the group (Mike) kept the "grouchy old men" in better moods with his always upbeat attitude, and big smile. I really liked Mike, what a good guy! What a good family man. Will miss him a lot. sadly, Bill Fabian

Got Bless the Barber Family. Michael was a good friend of my brother Eric. Michael was outgoing and friendly back in our high school days. I know my brother is grieving for the loss of his friend. It is tragic when a person dies so young. I pray the Barber family can be strong during this difficult time.

Words can not express the depth of sorrow we share with you right now. May loving and fun memories and the love and support of all those touched by Mike's life help to soften your grief. We love you all.
