Roby Earl "Bud" Barrier

September 14, 1954 — March 5, 2022

Old Fort, North Carolina

Roby Earl “Bud” Barrier, 67, of Old Fort, North Carolina, passed away Saturday, March 05, 2022.

 

He was born in Burke County on September 14, 1954 to the late Roy Ronald Barrier and Virginia Jolene Shell Buchanan. He is also preceded in death by a sister, Elsie Barrier Lowman.

 

Bud worked in lawn care and was very proud of his service. He formerly worked as a long-haul truck driver and was proud of that too. He graduated from Avery High School and will be remembered as being very kind, soft-hearted, compassionate, hardworking, and generous with his time and talents. Always smiling and joking, Bud was a loyal man who loved his family dearly and had many friends.

 

Bud was an outdoorsman who enjoyed fishing and the beauty of the mountains. He always wore a hat, and he loved animals. His latest hobby was raising chickens and selling their eggs. Bud was a proud veteran of the U.S. Army.

 

He is survived by three sisters, Candace Barrier, Patricia Lafevers, and Roberta Bennett; special friends, LuJuan Harrill, Bob Benfield, Don Effler, Denise and Johnny; and numerous nieces and nephews that he dearly loved.

 

A memorial service will be held at First Baptist Church of Old Fort on Saturday, March 19, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. David Blackwelder officiating. The family will receive friends from 1:00 until 2:00 p.m.
