Brett Barbee, age 19, is killed in Sunday accident.

By Sid Riley

A Sneads family is encased in the depth of terrible pain today as they mourn the loss of their nineteen year old son, Brett Barbee, who was killed in a Sunday morning accident at the intersection of Reddoch Road and Highway 69. Another young man from Grand Ridge who was driving the other vehicle, Marvin Mixon age 20, is also listed in serious condition as a result of the accident.

The State Police accident report states that Barbee failed to heed the stop sign at the intersection and entered the path of Mixon’s vehicle who was traveling northbound on SR 69. The 1999 Jeep driven by Barbee and the 2003 Toyota Pickup driven by Mixon both overturned after the impact.

Brett was currently enrolled at Chipola College, and was a graduate of Sneads High School. He was the son of Donald Barbee, Sr. (deceased) and is survived by his mother, Jackie, stepfather, Larry Watts, three brothers, a sister and a step-sister, and a host of other relatives. Brett was loved and enjoyed by all who knew him, he will be missed by many.

See our obituary section for more details and information about funeral arrangements.

Editor’s note: Our deepest sympathies go to the family of Brett Barbee. To all teenagers we say, please remember that in one moment your life can change from a situation where the world is waiting at your fingertips….and the next moment you are dead or horribly crippled for life.
Please drive carefully.
