Barney E. Williamson, Jr., 78, of Owensboro, passed away February 15, 2023. He was born July 10, 1944, in Winnsboro, LA to the late Barney Sr. and Georgia “Dee Dee” Hammond Williamson. Barney was member of Owensboro Faith Fellowship Church and retired from the Army Corps of Engineers as a Head Lockman. He was a deacon and very active member of Faith Fellowship and an avid baseball card collector. Barney loved his job, but more importantly, loved God, the time dedicated to his family as a husband, father, and grandfather. He was a plain spoken man with too many hobbies to list, but enjoyed life at its fullest. Barney was also preceded in death by his daughter, Angela Williamson.
He is survived by his wife, Janet Williamson; sons, James Williamson, Timothy (Sarah) Williamson; daughter, Ruby Ann (Mark) Elliott; grandchildren, Eli (Sera) Williamson, Caleb (Ashia) Williamson, Andrea (Christian) Williamson; great-grandchild, Oaklynn Williamson; sisters, Patricia Shivers, Bonnie Sue Dilmore, and Joan Newton, along with several nieces, nephews and cousins.
The funeral service will be 12:00 p.m. Monday at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory. Burial will follow at Owensboro Memorial Gardens. Visitation will be 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Sunday.
Expressions of sympathy may take the form of contributions to Ronald McDonald House or Owensboro Faith Fellowship Church.
