More detail on this person: Our beloved father, Robert Stuart "RB" Barsby, passed away on December 3, 2015 after a long battle with Parkinson's disease. He is survived by his wife Sandra, his children, Lori, Todd and Jill, his brother Jim and 6 grandchildren. Robert was an Army helicopter pilot during the Korean War from 1952 to 53 and was honorably discharged as a Captain. He then flew as a commercial pilot for several years. Robert entered into the metalworking machinery business with his brother Jim, which later grew into a successful importer/distributor business. That business, which was founded over 40 years ago, still thrives today under the direction of Robert's son, Todd. Later in his life, Robert turned his interest to real estate and refurbishing boats and always managed to keep himself busy with many projects with his wife Sandra always steadfast at his side. Services will be held on December 9, 2015 at Green Hills Mortuary. There will be a brief viewing at 9:00am, with a service at 10:00 a.m. Interment to follow at 2:00 p.m. at Forest Lawn in Glendale, CA. Please sign guestbook at
