Obituary

“To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”
Ecclesiastes 3:1

On Monday, January 2, 2023, at 11:37 PM the angels came and gently closed the eyes of Cedric O’Neal Barber and whispered, “Peace be thine.” Cedric was born on June 21, 1971, at Cook County Hospital in Chicago, Illinois, to the late Louis Barber and Jacqueline Barber Woods.

Cedric accepted Christ and was baptized at an early age by Dr. A. T. White and joined the Ackland Creek Church. He later united with the St. Mark Baptist Church under the leadership of Reverend Eugene Williams. He returned to the Ackland Creek Baptist under the leadership of Bishop Rodney McFarland, Sr., where he served faithfully as an usher until his health failed.

Cedric graduated from Block High School with the class of 1989. Cedric loved his family and friends and enjoyed spending time with them. Cedric had a special bond with each one of them. Cedric could make you laugh with his “smirk.” Cedric left a legacy with his humble and unique ways that will never be forgotten.

Cedric was preceded in death by his father, Reverend Louis H. Barber; his maternal grandparents, Robert and Theresa Hollins; and his paternal grandparents, David and Connie Barber. Cedric leaves to cherish his memories: his mother, Jacqueline Barber Woods of Jonesville, Louisiana; siblings, Sharon Hollins of Bossier City, Louisiana, Kevin Barber, Sabrina Curry (Randy), Obadiah Jackson, and Jamillah Jackson, all of Jonesville, Louisiana; aunts, Loria Hollins of Jonesville, Louisiana, Rosa McGowan and Thelma McGowan of New Orleans, Louisiana, and Wilma Cunningham (Kenneth) of Denton, Texas; uncles, Daniel Hollins (Linda) of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Edwin Barber (Eike) of Denton, Texas, and Nathan Barber of Jonesville, Louisiana; and a host of nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends.
