Mosley Allen Barber, 82, of Goldston, passed away peacefully Monday, 4/22/2019 at Universal Health Care in Ramseur. Arrangements will be announced by Smith & Buckner Funeral Home in Siler City.

Mosley was preceded in death by his wife of 57 years, Edna Dickerson Barber, and his oldest son, Steve Allen Barber.

Mosley loved his family. He is survived by one son, Dennis Barber and wife Wendy of Newport, NC, Three grandchildren: Sean Barber of Newport, Kevin Barber and wife Angie of Boone, NC and Jaimie Barber Palmer and husband Jason of Ketchikan, AK and Four Great Grandchildren: Krista Barber, Mackenzie Barber, Olivia Palmer and Mosley Palmer and Numerous Nieces and Nephews who loved him deeply.

Mosley worked very hard all of his life, literally "getting up before the chickens" daily to work at Townsend Hatchery and later the Feedmill. Mosley loved fishing and spent a lot of time at the coast with his grandchildren fishing from the piers. He also loved nature and animals, taking care of the birds, especially hummingbirds. He had swarms of them at his feeders always. In his retirement, he enjoyed sitting in the yard watching them and the butterflies on the flowers. Another great love of his was listening to Gospel and Bluegrass music, which he watched or listened to daily on RFD TV. He loved to read and seemed to know a little about everything.

Always the jokester, with quick wit, he has left his family with so many wonderful stories and memories.

Rest in Peace Dad, PoppyMo, Uncle, cousin and friend to many! We will see you again!
