    • Ernie R. Barber Jr., a son of Moore County who cherished all that it and its people had to offer, died suddenly Saturday night. He was 48.

      Born to Ray and Connie Barber, Ernie embraced life in the Sandhills. He loved hunting, fishing, riding three-wheelers and playing softball. He was a total outdoorsman who respected the environment and knew the blessings it bestowed on him. He honored what he was given by being a giving person in return. He was always ready to offer his help to any who asked, and he freely gave of his time, talents and treasure.

      As a native in a small, rural county, Ernie knew someone virtually everywhere he went, whether it was just a simple trip to the grocery store or going out to dinner with family. Friends remarked how Ernie could hardly turn around without meeting someone he knew.

      Ernie was always good with his hands and had a careful eye for quality. He enjoyed a long career as a pressman at Harris Printing from 1983 to 2007, and he held a similar job at The Pilot newspaper for three years. Most recently, he was a supervisor with UPS.

      Although he loved the outdoors, it was from family that Ernie drew his greatest joy and strength. He was a devoted and loving husband to his wife, Deborah. He was a wonderful son and brother, and he was devoted to his children and grandkids, who loved to call him "Papa."

      Left to honor his memory and grow his legacy are his wife, Deborah; parents Ray and Connie Barber; his children, sons Ryan Barber, Corey Barber and daughter Kristen Scarlett, their spouses Sarah Barber, Lindsay Barber and Bryan Scarlett; Ryan's mother, Samantha Baker, and Terri Matthews, mother of Kristen and Corey; grandchildren, Jace Ray Barber, Jayden Scarlett and Baylee Scarlett; stepchildren, Stephane Edmonds and Matthew Kilmer, their spouses Chris Edmonds and Sarah Kilmer; and stepgrandchildren Addison and Harper; brother Mike, sisters Rhonda Thompson and Tina Marks, their spouses Brandy Barber, Hurley Thompson and Tony Marks and nieces and nephews Melissa, Colton, Brittany, Tabitha, Brooke, Ryan, Greg, Geoff, Stewart, Zach and Justin; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

      A visitation will be held Thursday, June 27 at Boles Funeral Home, Southern Pines, from noon to 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the NRA and National Wildlife Federation.

      Services will be private.
