Kenneth Hollie Barker, 73, of New Hill, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, March 12, 2017.

A gentle and nurturing man committed to his family, community, and church, Kenneth was a friend who was always willing to lift a hammer, a child, or a spirit.

He is survived by his sons, Kent and Matthew, and spouse, Lauren.

The family will receive friends from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at Olive Chapel Baptist Church. A funeral service will be held in the chapel at 12:00 p.m. Burial service will follow at the church cemetery.
