Michael Raymond Barclay, 63, of Wesley Chapel, FL (formerly of Des Moines) passed away April 30, 2018 at Melech Hospice House in Tampa, FL. We are deeply saddened by this great loss but we know his sufferings have ended after a five year brave battle with cancer.

Mike was born on June 12, 1954 in Des Moines, IA to Raymond and Juaquetta (Jorgensen) Barclay. He grew up in Des Moines and graduated from Dowling Catholic High School and the University of Iowa. After college, Mike relocated to Tampa, FL where he was a Senior Vice President at several investment firms (Prudential Bache, Paragon Capital, and Royal Alliance) prior to starting his own company, M Barc Investment Group, Inc. For enjoyment, Mike spent time with family and friends, coached baseball for his boys, and followed sports events for his favorite teams. Mike’s grandchildren brought much joy to him and he was known for having a kind heart and gentle soul.

Mike is survived by his five children: Michael (Rachel) Barclay, Jonathan Barclay, Danielle (Nick) Drummond, Adam Barclay, and Jared Barclay - all of Tampa FL; 4 grandchildren: Ethan, Ali, Kendall, and Hannah; mother: Juaquetta Barclay of West Des Moines, IA; two sisters: Ann (Larry) Wheeler of West Des Moines, IA, and Theresa (Gene) McElmeel of Waterloo, IA. He was preceded in death by his father, Raymond Barclay, and two infant siblings: Mary and James.

A Mass of Christian Burial was held at 10:30 am Friday, May 4, 2018, at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church in Land O Lakes, FL. Interment will be 12 :00 p.m. Friday, June 15, 2018 at Glendale Cemetery in Des Moines, IA.
