Hubert lived a full and active life. He was a World War II veteran having served in the Army. For the rest of his life, he farmed and worked at Burlington Industries. Upon retirement, he continued to work part time, sharing vegetables from his garden and enjoying the outdoors. He was a beloved member of Holly Grove Advent Christian Church. Hubert loved being with people and helping them when he could. His ready smile and sense of humor will be greatly missed.
Hubert loved his family and they loved him. He is survived by his son, Gary Alton Barefoot (wife, Becky Barefoot); daughter, Joy Barefoot (husband, Bill Herndon); grandson, Christopher Barefoot (wife, Laney Barefoot); great grandson, Wyatt Barefoot; and brothers, Ovalee Barefoot and Shirley Barefoot.

The family expresses its gratitude to the staff and nurses at Betsy Johnson Regional Hospital for their kindness and tender care of our father and to Liberty Commons Nursing & Rehabilitation Center for their care. We also want to thank the many friends who have expressed love, support, and care for our father during his illness.
