"Mainly, he liked to talk," said Garcia. "He was always sitting on the porch, smoking a cigarette and talking to people walking by. He was a nice man."
Yarber was a talented musician. He played guitar and traveled all over the country with a group called Power Play.
"He plays the guitar pretty good, until recently, when he had an accident with one of his fingers, but he played with a lot of different bands in a lot of countries. Traveled a lot," said Garcia.
Yarber's ex-wife, Sherry, and her daughter are en route from Florida to be with Chris Yarber in this difficult time.
