3 Condolences to Jesse James Barb, Sr.

  1. I knew Jessie since I was a kid growing up in Orkney and Basye. I can remember walking to his parents house up thru the hollow from Bob’s store. Remember his parents very well also.

    He was a fine person and and it was a joy knowing him.

    I also got to meet him on a fairly frequent basis as I shopped at Safeway stores in Northern Va many years past.

  2. Michael and Sharon Royce says:

    Jesse was a great neighbor and friend.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with the Barb Family.

  3. Roger Bolland says:

    While I knew Jesse for only a short time through the Woodstock Lions, he impressed me with his compassion and concern for his community and his family. I remember how proudly he showed me a picture of his namesake great grandchild when we were manning the Lions Booth at the Shenandoah County Fair several years ago. Jesse was dedicated to Dorothy and all his family, and to service through the military, church, and Lions. I can think of no more deserving nor greater accolade for Jesse than to say he was “a good and honest man”. I feel fortunate to have known him. My sincere condolences to Dorothy and all of the family.
