Notes

William Jefferson Barefoot Junior of Raleigh, North Carolina passed away in peace on July 6, 2013 at the age of 79.

Bill was born September 4, 1933 in Battleboro, NC to William Jefferson and Mary Barefoot. He attended Benson High in Benson, NC and later attended the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. It was there where he met the love of his life Anna Cobb. They were married on November 12, 1955 and lived a loving and happy life.

Bill was a Coast Guard veteran and then a Government Civil Servant until his retirement in 1981. They moved to North Carolina in 1983 and Raleigh in 1985.

Bill was a loving father, grandfather, and friend to all he met. If you happened to be from around Benson he would want to know where from and who you were. He was extremely proud of his heritage and a true Tar Heel. The Raleigh neighbors will miss the talks in the yard; when you saw Bill and Anna together their love for each other was obvious and heartfelt.

Bill is survived by his loving wife Anna, son Will and his children Billy, Chris and his wife April, Sean and his wife Emily, son Jefferson and his wife Cecilia and daughters Carla and Monica. Sister-in-law Janet Newcomb and her husband Ray and sister-in-law Elizabeth Cobb.

His parents, William Jefferson and Mary Batts Barefoot of Benson, North Carolina, predeceased Bill. In-laws Joseph Manly Cobb and his wife Maria of Warrenton, VA also predeceased him.

Services will be held Friday July 12, 2013 at 11:00 AM at Renaissance Funeral Home. Internment will follow in Benson, North Carolina.

Donations can be made to cancer centers of North Carolina or any cancer foundation of choice.

Bill was the finest example of what a good neighbor is: friendly, caring, helpful and fun to be around. We missed him when we moved away, and miss knowing he's gone,even though the memory of his sweet presence will be with us forever. To Anna, please know how sorry we are for the loss of your dear Bill. Much love, Ann and "Midlothian" Bill

I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3,4 states "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. Hope these words give you a new hope. jw.org
