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.
In Lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be made to the National Kidney Foundation, 4701 Hedgemore Dr., Suite 810, Charlotte, NC 28209 or the Cornelius/Lake Norman Lions Club, 768 Southwest Dr, Davidson, NC 28036 in memory of George Barrett Julian.

I was so sad when I read about Barrett’s passing. He and I were in the Cornelius-Lake Norman Lions Club together and I always looked forward to our meetings. He came to every meeting well prepared, ready to serve, and always with a big smile on his face. He was such a valuable member of the club and such a gentleman. I also enjoyed the meetings when Billie would come. It was so obvious of their strong love and respect for each other. I will keep you all in my heart and in my prayers. oxoxo

I was saddened when I heard today about Barrett’s passing from a former co-worker. Barrett and I started work at I-R in Mocksville at about the same time. He was a hard worker and a very smart man. Everybody knew his family was always number one with Barrett. We lost contact for a few years when Barrett’s job moved to Davidson. I was very pleased to rejoin working with Barrett from the mid-90s until his retirement. I’ll never forget his retirement dinner/party! My condolences and best wishes to you.
