Robert Joseph Barclay


January 26,1944-January 7,2019

Robert Joseph Barclay 74, died in Jacksonville, Texas a few weeks short of his 75th birthday. He was born in Decatur, Illinois to Albert Sherman Barclay and Celia Branson. He was born almost two months premature with a stillborn twin, and against all odds lived and thrived, a true miracle in those days.
Robert spent most of his life in California where he worked in shipping and receiving. He spent many years living in North Hollywood with his sister, Beulah and his brother-in-law, James who survive him. The last 15 years were spent in retirement in Texas. He shared daily phone calls with his sister keeping in touch, as family meant so much to him.
He is predeceased by three other sisters: Pauline, Ann, and Julia. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews and good friends who mourn his passing.
Our beloved Uncle Bob was the victim of a homicide. His family wants you to know he was a gentle, unassuming man who would give you the shirt off his back. He used to feed stray cats. He was kind and generous to a fault. There are no words to convey our deep loss. He will be missed.
A private memorial in LA is pending.
