Ronald Steve Barker

Mr. Ronald Steven “Steve” Barker, 79, of Gibsonville, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Monday, July 25, 2022 at Alamance Regional Hospital. 

Steve was born July 21, 1943 in Rockingham County to the late  Raymond Lee and Mary Belle Tucker Barker.  He enjoyed working in the yard and relaxing by the pool with his family.  Steve retired from Engineer Plastics and attended St. Mark’s Church.  Steve was a loving husband, father, grandfather and brother.  He will surely be missed by his family and friends. His favorite pastime was spending time with his family either at the beach or other family gatherings. Steve especially cherished the times he and Janie got to spend enjoying the many activities with Hayden as he was growing up.

Steve is survived by his devoted wife of 58 years, Janie Mabe Barker; daughter, Andrea Garrison and husband Rodney; grandson, Hayden Garrison and wife Kensley; sister, Joan Young and husband Charles; brothers, Philip Barker and wife Melody, Jeff Barker and wife Sheri, and Gary Barker; father-in-law, Mack Williams; sisters and brothers-in-law, Linda and Rudy Hogan and Dennis and JoAnn Williams; nieces, Renea, Ashley, Alison (Stephen), and Leslie;  nephews, Jeff (Kelly) and Jamie (Jodi); and several great nieces and nephews.

Along with his parents, Steve was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Ada Francis and John Lee Barker; and maternal grandfather, Claude Tucker.

A celebration of Steve’s life will be held Friday at 2:00 PM at Lowe Funeral Home Chapel.  Interment will follow at Alamance Memorial Park. Visitation for family and friends will be held one hour prior to the service from 1:00 till 2:00 PM at the funeral home.
