The Barker Family

On September 17th 2017, we lost an amazing man, Joseph Leslie Barker. There are no words to properly describe him for he is so many things. He was kind, funny, smart, and as we all know an amazing chef. Most of all he was loved by everyone who knew him. Much like there are no words to descirbe the magnificent person we lost, there is also no way to describe the way his family feels.
Joseph, Jenesis and their two children were in process of looking for a new home, as their home was for sale. Along with grieving for the love of her life, Jenesis has to continue looking for a home for her and the children. All Joseph wanted for Jenesis to focus on was being a momma to his babies. She has been a stay at mom since they decided to add to their family while he took care of all the financial.
We have created this account on behave of his family to help with the funeral costs and other expenses to make things a little easier. His loss was unexpected so He did not have any insurance to cover such an expense. On top of grief his family is experiencing, they need some financial relief. We want to thank you for your love, support and prayers during this time.
