Barry N. Bagwell, age 76, of Elkton, passed away on Jan. 10, 2017, at Bailey Center for Caring. Born in Atlanta and raised in Miami, he graduated from Miami Jackson High School and then attended Tennessee Temple University where he received his bachelor's in music with a proficiency in voice. He went on to attend Clarksville School of Theology in Tennessee, where he received his doctorate of philosophy in religion. From 1965 to 1999, Barry served as a pastor in various churches throughout the country. Many interests brought happiness to his life, but his two greatest joys were spending time with family and furthering his relationship with his Savior.
He spent his last 13 years with the love of his life, Rosemary Sanders-Bagwell, whom he affectionately called "his" Rosie-Mae. He is survived by Rosemary; his daughters, Ashley Fuller, Julie Sanders, Nancy Smith, Debbie Lawrence; 12 grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, Annabelle (Reid) and Wiley Bagwell.
Memorial service will be at 10 a.m. on Saturday at Ancient City Baptist, where he was an active member.
