JB was a remarkable young man who touched the lives of all who knew him. He had an infectious smile and a kind heart that made him beloved by his family and friends. He brought joy and laughter wherever he went and had an incredible zest for life.
From a young age, JB showed natural curiosity and a love for adventure. JB’s most precious achievement in this world was his beautiful daughter AmeliaGrace Barbe. Seeing life through their eyes was what true love looked like. JB had a passion for motocross, and loved going to the track and trying to reach the clouds.
JB had a special bond with his family and cherished the time spent together. JB was a loving son, brother, and friend. JB’s high energy, compassion, and willingness to lend a helping hand endeared him to everyone. His presence was always to ensure everyone was going to have a good time. There was never a stranger when JB was in the room.
JB was preceded in death by his adoring grandfather, Dale Barbe. He was also preceded in death by his grandmother Louisa Miller.
JB is survived by his devasted parents, Jeff (Stacey) Barbe, Rachel (Benito) Chagala, siblings: Ricky (Maggie) Sisler, Justine (Travis) Head, Ryan Troyer, Angelina Chagala, and Alejandro Chagala. He is also survived by his long-time partner, soul mate and best friend, Kaylee Marie Gingerich who he shared his loving daughter, Amelia.
