My father, Tim “The Iceman” Barber, sadly battled Lewy Body Dementia for the last several years of his life until he passed away in 2017. I walk to honor him and to help raise awareness for this awful disease. I hope someday that we will find the first person who can say that they are an Alzheimer’s Survivor and proudly wave the White Flower! Any donation are very much appreciated to help both honor my father and help find a cure.
My father was and is a great man with a wonderful sense of humor. He was extremely caring and never put himself before others. He did everything he could for my family and never once complained about it.
I will always remember being with him on his ice route where we would be able to laugh and have fun while working endless days during the summer delivering ice to all his stops. I will also remember him going to all my hockey games and cheering me on and being the score keeper during my games. While I would be in the penalty box, my dad would tell me how to play when I got back out there to get under the other teams skin. I will also remember listening to him drum and even when I was a little guy, got me my first drum set, a little red TKO kid set, where he and I would just jam together. Well to be honest it was more of him playing a beat and me trying to solo on top of it, but he always encouraged me and my sister when it came to music since that was an important part in his life. I will also remember times where we would bicker, but still always being able to get over it like Father and Son. He loved me with all of his heart and I loved him right back.
Thank you dad for teaching me so much in life and doing all you could for our family. I love you with all my heart and I will always miss you and think of you and remember all the good times we had together.
