Daniel Paul Barber

  • Birth 28 Jan 1975
  • Death 27 Aug 1991
  • Burial Galesburg, Knox County, Illinois, USA
  • Memorial ID 14779702

Daniel died in a single car accident at age 16. He is the son of Jody Glynn Patrick (nee/Webster, adopted as "Shryack") and brother of Summer, Brook and Philip. Daniel was born in Macomb, IL.

Though young when he died, Daniel was a very giving young man who wanted to become a police officer. He was already accomplished; a black belt in Tai Kwon Do, award-winning drummer, an Eagle Scout. He was about to begin high school at Bay View, a suburb of Milwaukee, in the police program, and had just signed up as a police explorer scout with the Cudahy, Wisconsin, Police Department. He would be very proud to know that his sister, Brook, is now a Chicago police officer.

Most important, Daniel Paul was a very beloved child who brought great joy to our family. He is greatly missed. He remains a part of our daily lives and we share our memories of him with the babies entering our lives -- his nephews Patrick Daniel Cassidy and Nathaniel G. Patrick, and his niece Natalie Patrick.

Daniel had two families, after his parents divorced and remarried, and he loved both families deeply and with great commitment.

Not a day passes yet without prayers and an abiding gratitude for all of the love, humor and loyalty he brought into our lives.
