Delmas Harold Barwick, 82, of Mount Olive, passed away on Friday afternoon, May 20, 2022, surrounded by his family at his home on the farm where he was raised and spent his life.
Harold is survived by his loving wife, Faye Barwick; his daughter, Karen B. Cox and son in-law James Ray of Grantham; his son, Todd H. Barwick of Mount Olive; his step-son, Michael J. Weaver and daughter-in-law Sharon of Mount Olive; and his sister, Mary Dell B. Lewis and her husband Butch of Mount Olive; his grandchildren, Morgan P. Jackson and husband Dex, Skyler P. Kearney and husband Blake, Ashton Cox, and Cody Weaver; great-grandchildren, Eliza and Ever Jackson. Harold is also survived by a son-in-law, Nelson Parks; and two sisters-in-law, Glenda Barwick and Marion Barwick.
Harold was preceded in death by his parents, John Harvey and Hattie Holloman Barwick; a beloved daughter, Jill B. Parks; and his brothers, Leonard, Harvey, Kenneth Ray, and Franklin Barwick.
Harold spent his entire life as a local farmer, tending the land just east of Mount Olive, where he was born and on which he was raised. He and his wife, Faye, worked side by side where they operated and owned Barwick’s Produce Stand for over 30 years. He knew the meaning of hard work, and was a devoted family man to his wife, children, and grandchildren. Harold loved his farm, and that’s exactly where he wanted to be. A private memorial service will be held on that farm with close family and friends at a later date.
