Brody Barker scholarship

Brody Barker

COLUMBIA CITY — The Community Foundation of Whitley County now holds an endowed scholarship created in memory of Brody Barker, who passed away Wednesday, March 1, 2023 at Parkview Regional Medical Center. His body drew its final breath on Friday, March 3, 2023, and he gave gifts as a donor to help others continue on with their lives.

The son of Lloyd Barker and Michelle Dailey, Brody grew up in Columbia City where he loved to make people smile and laugh. He played football while attending Columbia City High School but academics came first. Those who knew him say he excelled as a math genius, and say Brody had a genuine thirst for knowledge and a need to know why.
