OBITUARY

David Barkley Jr.

29 August, 198519 November, 2020

David Lawrence Barkley, Jr., age 35, of Arlington, TN passed away on November 19, 2020. David was born in Vallejo, CA and moved to Memphis, TN in 2010 after meeting the love of his life, his wife Sandra Barkley. Together, they supported each other as their attention focused on building a future and family. David proudly embraced his role as stepfather of Sandra’s children, Hayley and Hayden Ledbetter, as if they were his own flesh and blood. In 2013, David and Sandra grew their family with the arrival of their daughter Harper Marion Barkley, who made their family complete. Nothing in the world meant more to David than his wife and three children, and he was loved and adored equally in return.

David fulfilled his dreams to become a general contractor and own his own business, ResGen Roofing, employing family and friends, which through hard work and passion grew to become a national company. In addition to his wife and kids, he is survived by his parents, Deborah and David Barkley, Sr. of Bartlett, TN, his sister Jasmine Barkley of Palo Cedro, CA, his maternal grandmother, Mary Wagner of Palo Cedro, CA, his paternal grandfather, Al Barrot of Vallejo, CA, and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. David’s memorial service will be held Tuesday, November 24, 2020 at 2 p.m. at The Refuge Church with a private burial to follow.

I just heard the news today and i am so sorry for the families loss. My deepest condolences to Sandra, the kids and to the rest of his family. I worked closely with David (as i do all the adjusters) at Pilot for the past 4 years. He is an amazing guy/adjuster and it was a pleasure to work with him and get to know him over the past few years. He always spoke highly about Sandra and his 3 kids... He always had stories and photos of them all. He loved his kids more than anything, and not ever one more than the other. He was always so proud to show all of them off to us. Again, my condolences to you all.

Broke my heart to learn of David's leaving this life...
I was so happy for him when he made a life changing decision to move to Tennessee in pursuit of work and new experiences.
He found his path, work, love, life, family, and faith. Absolutely an amazing young man, husband, father, son, grandson, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin, and friend.
You will always be loved and cherished, never forgotten.

I cannot even begin to express how very special David was in life and how very loved he will always be. He has taken a piece of my heart with him and his Aunt Missy knows that we will all be together again in Heaven.
Until then, I will miss you always, my sweet boy. I love you David. I promise to keep your memory alive, especially for Sandra and your kiddos.

The few times I saw David why doing work at his house, he always had a smile on his face and always asked how I was doing. The conversation was short, but I felt that he was truly sincere with is words.
