Michael Barberi was so many amazing things: a devoted husband, a loving father, a faithful son, a loyal brother, a thoughtful uncle and a phenomenal grandfather.

Michael returned to Pensacola in 2005 to work in his father's family business, Barberi Heating & Air, and he became President and Owner in 2008. He was an avid hunter and enjoyed spending time in the woods.
