Billy Wayne Barlow, of Paris, husband of Carolyn Baber Barlow, who survives, departed this life on Saturday, December 21, 2019, at his home with his family by his side, after a long illness. He was born in Paris, KY, on December 1, 1947, the son of the late Pauline Byrd Soard and Marion J. Barlow. Billy was a 1965 graduate of Paris High School, attended Georgetown College as well as the University of Kentucky. He served two years in the United States Marine Corp and spent thirteen months in Viet Nam. He worked for Bell South for thirty-one years, was a lifelong farmer, and continued to farm after his retirement from Bell South. Next to his love for his family and farming, he loved his horses and riding. He traveled to several states with friends for horseback riding trips. He was greatly loved by his family and was well respected in the community. Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by both sets of grandparents, Audra and Elmer Byrd and Mae and Alec Hutson.

Besides his wife Carolyn, he is survived by their daughters, Melissa Bowman (Dave), Amanda Hagen (Ryan), both of Paris, and Kathryn Casey of Lexington. Also surviving are five grandchildren, Kirsten Hagen, Karson Hagen, Bersain Barlow, Aiden Casey and Addisyn Casey; two aunts Ruby Mann (Bobby), Marion Wilson; and cousins, Gayle Wilson (Julie), Kim McCord (Bobby), Audra Mitchell (Claude), David Byrd, Richard Rankin, and Steve Rankin.

The funeral service for Billy Wayne Barlow will be at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, December 27, 2019, at the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) with Rev. Jeff Bell officiating. Interment will follow in Paris Cemetery.

Visitation will be on Thursday, December 26, 2019, from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at First Christian Church, Disciples of Christ.

The family would like to say a special thanks to Mack Kincaid who has taken care of the farming operations when Billy was no longer able to do so.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggest donations to PAWS, MSA Coalition, Bluegrass Hospice Care, or the Wounded Warrior Project.

I will always remember Billy as an exemplary man with a great sense of humor. Someone that lived to love his family, to respect people and to work very hard.

We had great times riding horses, watching movies and sports. Billy gave importante advices about life, and I always will carry them with me.

He always will be in my mind and my heart.

Together with the Barlow Family,
