Barry B. Wood

Barry Baker Wood, 59, peacefully passed away at his home, Sunday, February 11, 2018 while surrounded by the love and comfort from his family. 
He was born January 1, 1959 to the late Donald and Betty Wood of Rockfish. He is survived by his brother Don (Lynn) of Wagram, his brother Todd (Sherry) of Rockfish and his sister Becky of the home, who did a truly amazing job of caring for him as he battled with cancer. He is also survived by nine nieces and nephews and 10 great nieces and nephews whom he enjoyed spending time with. 
He was well-known in Rockfish and was a faithful member of Tabernacle Baptist Church. After retirement from Kelly Springfield Tire Company (now known as Goodyear) in the early '90s, he enjoyed gathering with local residents at the Rockfish CafĂ© or at Wood's Small Engine Repair Shop. Always eager to help those in need, he did not meet a stranger and was known by all to have a sweet spirit about him. He enjoyed working in his garden. He cherished his pet dogs, Maggie and Blue. 
He will be laid to rest on Thursday, February 15, 2018. The family will receive guests from 2-2:45 p.m. at Tabernacle Baptist Church, Rockfish, followed by a celebration of his life at 3 p.m. officiated by the Rev. Tommy Underwood. Interment will be in the church cemetery immediately following the funeral. 
The family is requesting that memorials and donations be made to Liberty Hospice, Raeford, or Tabernacle Baptist Church Rockfish. 
Arrangements for the family are entrusted to Crumpler Funeral Home, Raeford, NC.
