Remembering Adrian Barger

Adrian Marie Barger passed away on Sept 5, at age 28, after a lifetime of touching the hearts and souls of everyone who knew her.  Born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, she lived in Scottsdale, AZ. Adrian was born on May 10, 1990.

She was a consummate, self-taught musician who could play any instrument she touched. She began displaying this prodigious gift as a little child. She was absolutely a stunning, amazing, beautiful soul who is dearly missed by everyone she shined her light on.

Everyone who was graced by her connection knows that she was strong, honest and brilliant - with a piercing sense of humor. She never held back - was always herself 100% and fully embraced all her friends and family for who they were. She was fun-loving and fired up about anything they were trying to achieve. She truly believed in them and could see the very best of someone's essence. 

Adrian shined the light of Truth on a sometimes harsh and cold world.  

Adrian was an old soul and a sensitive soul who knew the inner-workings of the world and people’s minds. She was artistic, had astonishing ideas and could leave people in awe with her social observations.

She always maintained her heart and loving-kindness no matter what she had been through - and she strongly forged through a lot of adversity and tragedy. Her friends and family meant the world to her and she spoke so highly and kindly of them all. She truly valued the connection she shared with you. She cherished her connections like no other person. 

She had a special heart for animals (they loved her, too!) and she diligently cared for them all the time while growing up. It was a common occurrence for her to rescue animals and intuitively care for them like a veterinarian.  She had a penchant for natural healing and quickly absorbed complicated volumes of homeopathy knowledge that she could correctly apply with her strong intuition. 

Her original music compositions were other-worldly and transcendent. She graduated from the prestigious RECW Recording Workshop with a certification in audio recording, based in Chillicothe, OH. Adrian bears vocal credits for the song "Greenback Blues " by  Peter, James and HFW for which she helped create/sing background vocals.

Adrian had dreams of getting licensed in Cosmetology, starting a family and pursuing music again. 

Adrian was so very close to her family and her family's heart! She held them together and kept them going through difficult times. She generously offered to help them - even if she herself had so little, she would have given her last dime without a second thought.

She is survived by her father Craig and siblings Heather, Nolan and Danny; her Grandmother and many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and Beloved Friends. 

Adrian is now reunited with her Mother, Connie, who passed away Oct 27, 2015 and Grandfather, Melvin, who passed away February 19, 2017. 

The Barger family didn't want to trouble people for help - but the losses they recently experienced have been more than they can handle. This is the most trying time of their entire lives. 

They are humbly asking for help with final expenses for Adrian and a tribute for her legacy. They are asking for donations in a week's time for final resting expenses. At this time there is no set memorial service - however, the family wishes to create a tribute for friends and family to remember Adrian. 

The funds will be collected by Adrian's sister, Heather, for Adrian's father, Craig, to handle final arrangements in Arizona.

The family wishes to thank everyone for any and all donations, great or small - they are so grateful for the help! And even more grateful that you touched Adrian's life, too. 

Please continue praying for the Barger Family and know that any donations large and small will go so far to help them with handling final preparations and keeping Adrian's memory alive for all who knew her.
