Hubert H. (John) Barber, Jr., 83, of Dawsonville, GA, exhaled his last breath on November 26, 2017 following complications from Parkinson’s disease.
John was born on July 31, 1934, in Holden, WV, to Hubert and Carolyn (Hobson) Barber, the oldest of four boys. John served with the Army in Korea. He was a proud graduate from University of Virginia where he played football for the Cavaliers.

He was Director of Security for Harbor Island in Tampa, FL, for 6 years, retiring again in 1995.
