William "Bill" Fredrick Barker

November 9, 1942 — June 15, 2023

Asheboro

The family of William “Bill” Barker announces his passing on June 15, 2023 at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.

Bill was raised in Mt. Holly, North Carolina. He earned a BA degree at Elon College. While there, he met Patsyanna Bulla and they married in 1966.

Bill operated Barker Masonry and, later, Barker Construction. Bill was uncompromising about quality in his profession and balanced his work by always being available for his three sons; who knew their father to be generous, honest, and kind.

Bill was active within his community; serving in leadership positions with the church and receiving an award for his efforts while leading the local Cub Scouts.  Bill was a proud supporter of the NC Zoological Society and gifted an endowed scholarship at Randolph Community College.

Bill will be remembered by his wife of 56 years, Patsyanna Bulla Barker; children Michael, Taylor (Rachel), and Emery (Katherine), three grandchildren; sister Betty Howe (Richard); brother Robert (Virginia), and numerous other family members and friends.

Bill was predeceased by his parents Buford and Bessie.
