Carl Lendal Barber, 90, of Sumerduck, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Wednesday, October 21, 2020.
He was born on August 24, 1930, in Stafford, to the late Maurice and Bertha Barber.
Carl was a drywall/plasterer with Dodd Brothers in Northern Virginia before he retired to Sumerduck. He was a true outdoorsman. Hunting, cutting down trees, splitting wood and working in his garden were his passions. He took great pride in his vegetable garden and often had so much he would give it to people he did not even know. He loved his family and teaching the younger generation about hunting and the outdoors gave him great joy.
Carl was a man of few words but a wealth of knowledge. He will be greatly missed.
Carl is survived by his beloved wife of 64 years, Sally L. Barber; his daughter, Susan B. Hicks and husband Michael of Sumerduck; two grandchildren, Sallie Swain and husband Brian of Sumerduck and Carlin Schumann and wife Crystal of Stafford; two sisters, Bessie Powell and Vera Smith; four great grandchildren, Owen, Mallory, Dylan and Kenadee, and many loving nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
In addition to his parents, Carl was preceded in death by two brothers, Maurice Barber Jr. and William Barber, and a sister, Naomi Dodd.
The family will accept visitors from 10 to 11 a.m. Monday, November, with the funeral to follow at Mt. Carmel Baptist church, 12714 Elk Run Rd., Midland. Interment then will take place at Quantico National Cemetery in Triangle.
