Barber died on May 19 at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center of complications following surgery.  Barber needed several surgical procedures after an ATV pinned him against his patrol car in Wilkes County nearly two years ago.


The Journal reports Barber’s memorial service will begin at 2:30 Wednesday afternoon outside the Walker Center at Wilkes Community College.  Highway Patrol cruisers and other emergency vehicles will travel from Barber’s home near Roaring River to the memorial service.  Traffic may be affected as the procession will travel on Highway 421.
