Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
George Barrett Julian, age 74, went to be with our Lord, on Monday, June 9, 2014 surrounded by his family. Born October 2, 1939 to Charles and Beulah Julian in Columbia, SC, he was the youngest of 3 brothers. They moved to Salisbury, NC in 1941 and he graduated from Boyden High School in 1957.
Barrett’s love of photography started when his brother Charlie gave him a darkroom kit one year for Christmas. He set it up in the basement and enjoyed using it all his teenage years. That led to his 10 year career at Carolina Camera where he was self educated in all aspects of photography, especially developing photographic prints and slides.
After finishing his education and graduating from Rowan Tech in 1966, Barrett went to work for Ingersoll Rand and advanced to Supervisor of Drafting. He enjoyed his work and received much satisfaction with his achievements. He retired from Ingersoll Rand in 1999 after 31 years.
Barrett’s love was his wife and family whom he always put first. He was a man with many talents and hobbies ranging from radio control airplanes to woodworking. He was an active member of Peninsula Baptist Church and the Lake Norman Lions Club.
He is survived by his loving wife of over 57 years, Billie Ann Weatherford Julian whom he married on April 13, 1957; four sons and daughter-in-laws, William B. Julian and his wife June, Ronald L. Julian and his wife Teresa, Robert Julian and his wife Teri, John A. Julian and his wife Angela, 12 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild and many nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by Charles (dad), Beulah (mom), Charlie (brother), Paul (brother) and an infant brother.
Visitation and Memorial will be held at Peninsula Baptist Church at 687 Brawley School Rd in Mooresville NC on (Sat) June 14, 2014. The family will be receiving visitors from 3:00 to 4:30 with the Memorial to follow.
