Obituary

A Celebration of Life for Jesse Leon Barker, Jr., age 44, of Enid, will be 2:00 pm, Friday, December 4, 2020 at Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home. The family will receive friends from 6:00 to 7:00 pm on Thursday, December 3rd at the funeral home. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home.
Jesse was born February 17, 1976 in Enid, to Jesse and Karma Lu (Darbe) Barker, and passed away Saturday, November 28, 2020 in Enid.
Jesse began working at James Crabtree Correctional Center in August 2003, where he met his wife, Brandi (Pitts) Barker, and they married on February 5, 2007. They had two beautiful daughters, Hailee Joe and Hannah Noel. Jesse moved up through the ranks to Corporal, later transferring to Enid Community Correctional Center in 2008 and there he was promoted to Lieutenant. In 2010, Jesse was then promoted to Chief of Security at the Waurika Community Work Center in Waurika, OK, and moved his family there. Jesse loved being involved in community events, activities, clean-ups and more. He was a reserved sheriff deputy with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department from 2011-2015. Jesse loved to go hunting and fishing in his spare time with his family, and was an advocate for gun safety. He opened up a gun store in Waurika to help promote gun safety and while there earned his SDA Instructor certificate to teach.
In 2016, Jesse moved his family back to Enid, Oklahoma after the closing of the work centers across the state and continued his career back at James Crabtree Correctional Center along with his wife. Jesse rekindled a passion for riding again and got involved with the Downed Bikers Association. He loved riding, doing poker runs and benefits. He was elected Sergeant at Arms in 2020 and recently elected Vice President for the 2021 Enid Chapter. Jesse rode every chance he could, it didn’t usually matter most of the time the weather, but of course, if the weather was dangerous, he’d say, “not today.” He also completed several biker challenges and routes for his bucket list. Jesse loved to play pool and even joined a league to enjoy and some even called him a “pool shark.”
Jesse had many certifications and training through his career and life; he was CLEET Certified; MSF Rider Coach/Instructor; CPR/First Aid Instructor; OC Spray/Baton Instructor; Self-Defense Instructor; Basic Instructor Development Certificate and Self-Defense Instructor and Firearms Instructor. He was a life-time member of the NRA and the Downed Bikers Association. He was also a member of Oklahoma Public Employees Association, OCP and CPO.
He was a huge fan of the Oklahoma Sooners football team and attended games through the years. He was a true patriot for his country, and very proud, and proudly wore it proudly tattooed on his arm and honored it.
Jesse did live a full life and did it all with the love of his life, Brandi, til the end. So as he told many passing, “See you later - Ride High.”
Jesse is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, John and Joann Barker; maternal grandfather, William J. Darbe and his uncle, Kiby Darbe. He is survived by his wife, Brandi Barker; of the home in Enid; parents, Jesse and Karma Lu Barker; five children, Michael Barker, Joseph Collins, Carter Collins, Hailee Joe Barker and Hannah Noel Barker; maternal grandmother, Dona Mae (Ralston) Darbe; four siblings, John Barker and wife Carlynn, of Enid, OK; Shanna Archibald and husband Peter, of Lubbock, TX; Jacob Barker and wife Tiffany, of Yukon, OK; Justin Barker and wife Dakota, of Alva, OK; uncle, John Barker and wife Jan of Amarillo, TX; uncle Joe Barker, of Houston, TX; aunt Jennifer Cook and husband Kevin, of Prairie Grove, AR; uncle Jack Barker, of Prairie Grove, AR; uncle Jerry Barker and wife Teresa, of Enid, OK; uncle Kim Darbe and wife June, of Guthrie, OK; and uncle Kevin Darbe and wife Lisa, of Edmond, OK.
Memorial contributions in Jesse’s name may be made to the Downed Bikers Association with Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home serving as custodian of the funds.

Jesse will surely be missed by all who knew him. A man who loved his family but shared his time with staff in DOC. Through time of working with his wife, I heard about fun times, plans and their children. May the family be surrounded with love and GODs grace.
Sincerely,
Lora Roper
