Jeffrey Barr Obituary (1969 – 2022) – Columbus, OH
Jeffrey Dale Barr, 52, of Circleville, Ohio, died January 13, 2022. Jeff was born March 13, 1969 to Martin and Patricia (Fannin) Barr. Jeff was predeceased by his father. Jeff has always been a farmer and co-owner of Barr Brothers LLC.
On December 5, 1992, Jeff married his beloved wife, Heather (Woodard) and together they have two amazing children, Mitchell (Andrea Ramey) Barr and Mindy (Cole) Flesher; a beautiful granddaughter, Cora Faye Barr; and a granddaughter who will arrive in April 2022. Jeff is also survived by his mother, Patricia; his brother Terry Barr; and nieces and nephews.
Jeff was a true Man of God. He loved the Lord and his family. He emphasized that Sunday was a day of rest and family. There could be fields to plant and plenty of sunshine, but on Sunday no work was done.
Jeff loved to make others happy by helping out in any way he could. He could fix anything and loved dirt and dirt! Jeff always believed that if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life, and that’s exactly how he lived.
Jeff enjoyed his daily McDonald’s cheeseburger and six-piece nugget (along with an occasional Oreo Blizzard) and even during his long hospital stay he enjoyed his usual McDonald’s until his final days. M&Ms were his evening snack, which he also liked to share with Cora as well as anything chocolate. Cora tugged at Jeff’s heartstrings. He was also looking forward to the arrival of his new granddaughter in April.
Jeff was patient and loved the cattle his kids raised and showed, but most of all, he loved Truck Pulls! He was always so proud to go “like a kid to a candy store”, just to be there and see everyone and watch Mitchell polish his truck and roll down the track. A good draw was just “the icing on the cake”.
Jeff was loved by everyone who met him. He will be greatly missed by the farming, ranching and trucking community. Most importantly, he will be missed by his family and his beloved wife of 29 years.
Jeff’s family will have private services, with a celebration of Jeff’s life taking place later this year. More information will be shared when plans are finalized and a date is set.
Care entrusted to Defenbaugh-Wise-Schoedinger Funeral and Cremation Services, Circleville, Ohio.
