Barry Wayne Herion

Barry Wayne Herion, 58, of Cornatzer Road, Mocksville, died at his home on Tuesday, June 3, 2014. 

A native of Rowan County, he was born Jan. 2, 1956, and was the son of Betty Mahaley Herion of Salisbury and the late Philip Walter Herion. Prior to retirement in 1999 due to health reasons, he had been a production operator for Fiber Industries for almost 25 years. He was a member of the Spencer Moose Lodge and Cornerstone Baptist Church in Landis. He loved spending time with family, friends and pets and looked for an opportunity to help others. He took pride in keeping his lawn and yard in immaculate condition with the help of his John Deere. His family looked forward to his role as “Santa’s helper” during the holiday seasons. 

In addition to his mother, survivors include: his wife, Linda Allen Herion, whom he married on Dec. 10, 1995; 3 sons, Tim Herion of Rockwell, Zachary Herion of Texas, and Grant Herion (Jessica) of Gold Hill; 2 daughters, Tasha Herion of Rockwell and Mary Jane Cook (Tracy) of Salisbury; a brother, Ronnie Herion (Paula) of Cleveland; a sister, Patti Vallandingham of Rockwell; 4 grandchildren, Alisha, Courtney, Jayden and Rebecca; and his special four-legged companions, Macy, Maggie, and Diego.

A celebration of life service was held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 8 at the Davie Funeral Service Chapel with Pastor Hazel Rollings officiating. The family received friends at the chapel.
