Nate Barber Obituary

Nate Lamar Barber Jr. was born on December 24,1937, in Tampa, Florida, and peacefully passed away on November 15, 2023, in the same city he always called home. A man of immense faith, intelligence, and interest, Nate was cherished by all who knew him.

Nate leaves behind his beloved wife of sixty-six years, Myrna Louise Barber, who remained his pillar of strength and love throughout their life together. He was a loving father to his three sons, Steve (Sheri) Barber, Michael Barber, and Dennis (Lindsay) Barber, who will remember him as a guiding beacon, always lighting their path with wisdom and love. He was a respected brother to his sisters, Ann Boyett, Peggy Rodrigues, Patty LaBarbera, Nancy Ayo, and Kathy Scaglione. His legacy will also live on through his eleven grandchildren and twenty-two great-grandchildren, all of whom he adored.

Born and raised in Tampa, Nate held a special place in his heart for his hometown, where he built his life and family. He was a dedicated professional, working as an accountant and comptroller with Evans Properties in Dade City. His intelligence and dedication to his craft were well known, and he was respected by his colleagues for his integrity and commitment.

Nate was a man of deep faith and was an active member of the Landmark Baptist Church. His faith was not just a personal commitment but a guiding principle that he shared with his community. It was this faith that saw him through the trials of life and gave him the strength to face all challenges with grace and resilience.

Nate had a keen interest in life and was always eager to learn and share his knowledge. He was an interesting man, full of stories and experiences that he loved to share with his family and friends. He had a unique ability to make even the simplest of conversations interesting and insightful. His intelligence, combined with his natural curiosity, made him a joy to be around.

Among the many things that made Nate special, his love for his family stood out the most. He cherished his family and was always there for them in times of need. He was not just a loving husband, father, and grandfather, but also a friend who could be counted on for support and guidance. His family was his greatest pride and joy, and his love for them was evident in everything he did.

As we remember Nate, we recall the words of Mahatma Gandhi, "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." This quote embodies Nate's approach to life - a man who lived each day to its fullest and never stopped learning.

Nate was a faith-filled man who lived his life with integrity, intelligence, and a deep love for his family. He will be remembered not just for his professional achievements, but more importantly, for the love and wisdom he shared with those around him. His legacy of faith, love, and learning will continue to inspire all who knew him. He will be deeply missed.
