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.

Buddy was one of a kind. His humor kept us all in stitches and his love for his family was amazing. He was my favorite brother in law, which I would tell him often to have him say I am your only brother in law . I will miss him so much. He was a big part of all of our lives. RIP Buddy.
Lori and family,

What a fine man he was! I remember visiting their house in Hardy before he and JoAnn moved to Arizona, and he was always joking around and how he loved to laugh! When he was out on the road driving, Lisa and I would head to Overnite and pick up his paycheck each week. I guess JoAnn always trusted that Lisa would bring it home. Haha!
He will be very missed, and I’m glad that his family is comforted in knowing they will see him again.

Our sweet Uncle Buddy. He was in my eyes the perfect gentleman. Always Having fun and treating people kind. He was always sneaking a kiss from his wife in all the commotion of family get togethers. We would laugh and laugh at a young age. We thought that was gross. What a smile you sweet man you gave many. You will be so missed from so many. Fly high

Buddy was a great friend. We had many good times together. I remember his dad and mom as great folks and made sure we had food before going out on the town. Stewartsville was a booming town back then. Lol
