Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Hoyt “Buddy” Hughes Barton Jr., 77, of Salisbury, passed away Tuesday, April 26, 2022 at the Glenn A. Kiser Hospice House.
He was born June 11, 1944 in Bedford, VA to the late Hoyt Barton Sr. and Worthy Wright Barton. Buddy was a simple, kind, loving, man. He retired from overnight trucking after 28 years. His CB name was “Big Foot” and if you had the pleasure of meeting him you understood why. He had a great sense of humor and even had it in the last days. He will be dearly missed here on earth but we’ll see him again in heaven.
Hoyt is survived by his wife of 58 years, Doris JoAnn Johnson Barton; daughters, Lori Wray (Pat) and Lisa Wilson (Fred); 3 grandchildren, Steven Wray (Blair), Kari Vanwitzenberg (Shane), and Kristen Wilson; 7 great-grandchildren; sisters, Brenda Warnick of Maryland, and Yvonne Sweeny of Virginia; several brother and sisters-in-laws, nieces, nephews and great friends.
Per Buddy’s wishes, there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Glenn A. Kiser Hospice House, 1229 Statesville Blvd. Salisbury, NC 28144.
