May 13th, 1974 – August 8th, 2020
Jason grew up in Charlotte, NC, and graduated from Olympic High School. He went to a trade school and received a journeyman degree. He eventually got his unlimited license for electrical contracting and worked in that field for most of his life. He absolutely loved the Washington Redskins. His whole family was fans of the Redskins up until the Panthers were formed and everyone switched teams EXCEPT for Jason. If you knew Jason, you know what kind of reaction he had when the Redskins changed their name to “The Washington Football Team.” Hint: It was not a happy one. He absolutely loved singing karaoke with his children and wife. It always brought a big smile to his face. He loved the Orioles baseball team and he also enjoyed coaching. He coached for his son and his nephews for the Indian Trail Athletic Association. Jason also loved deep sea fishing and fishing in general. His dad showed him the ropes as a young man, and he had fun doing it. He was the ultimate protector and would never let anything happen to his family and loved ones. He had the biggest heart and would give anyone the shirt off his back if he happened to be wearing one. He loved riding his Harley with his brothers and friends and we know he is up there, riding on an open road somewhere. He will be missed dearly.
Jason is survived by his wife, Ashley Garten Barwick; his father, Allan B. Barwick, and stepmother, Leah G. Barwick; his children: Hailey Jane Barwick, Vance Weston Barwick, and Noah Allan Barwick; his four brothers: Jared Barwick, Gabe Barwick (Alina), Heath Barwick, Chase Barwick, and his one and only baby sister, McKenzie Barwick and many nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins. He is predeceased by his mother, Jane Allison Cox, his grandmother, Eleanor Elizabeth Todd Barwick, and his aunt, Nancy Josephine Barwick Hege.
A Service to celebrate Jason’s life will be held at 1:00 PM, Thursday, the 13th of August 2020 in The Historic Morehead Street Chapel of Ellington Funeral Services. A viewing will be held immediately following the service at the funeral home. All are welcome.
