John Barber

July 26, 1947 — September 23, 2018

John Gary Barber, 71, of Greensburg, died Sunday, September 23, 2018 following a hard

fought, year long battle with cancer. John was born July 26, 1947 in Niagara Falls, NY to the

late Edwin & Winifred Warrant Barber. He served his country with pride for 6 years as a US

Navy Submariner and went on to a 40 year career with Westinghouse Electric. John is survived

by his loving wife of 41 years, Gail Sjoblom Barber; 4 children, Jeremy Barber and wife, Teresa,

of Mt Pleasant, Jennifer Standish and husband, Casey, of Ohio, Katie Nicolazzo and husband

Matt of Greensburg, and April Hauger and husband Andy of Greensburg; 9 grandchildren Katie

Sarver, Brandon Sarver, Tommy Hauger, Cora Hauger, Mikey Nicolazzo, Charlotte Hauger,

Jacob Hauger, Lily Standish and Ruby Standish; along with his sister Janet Gould and husband

Richard of Florida and brother Jim Barber and wife Judy of Michigan and multiple nieces and

nephews. John believed things should be done right and everything needed to be well thought

out - ‘anything worth doing was worth over doing.’ While he was not social, he was extremely

kind, and gained the affection and respect of those around him through his willingness to lend a

hand. There will be no public visitations. The funeral service and burial will be private at

Fairmont Cemetery, Cook Township. Memorial contributions in his name can be made to

Armbrust Christian Academy, 7786 Route 819, Hunker, PA 15639
