Retired U.S. Army Special Forces Master Sergeant Barry Lee Garland, 65, of Cameron passed unexpectedly on May 6, 2020 at his residence. \n\nHe was born to the late George W. Garland and Marcellene Sager Garland on March 9, 1955 in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Besides his father he is preceded in death by a brother Jesse Garland.\n\nDespite his gruff exterior and stubbornness, he was a loving, giving and caring person who will be missed by all that knew him. He leaves behind his wife, Loren Koricich Garland, of 46 years; his mother Marcellene Garland; sons, Brandon, and long-time companion, Judy, and Aaron, and fiance, Kacie; daughters, Jamie, and husband Christopher, and Desiree, and Husband Eric; sister, Sharon and brothers George and Robert; and five grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.\n\nBarry loved the Army and always said those were the best years of his life. He spent most of his years as a Green Beret in intelligence and Special Forces, operating mainly out of Central and South America and was qualified as an Airborne Jump Master and Military Free Fall, he loved to jump. After 20 years of service, he retired and then started his own company, Regional Electric. Afterwards, he worked as a Lead Refrigeration Mechanic at Pilgrims Pride up until his time of death. He was wicked smart and never lost any argument. He was mostly looking forward to restoring his 1969 Dodge Super Bee after retiring. He enjoyed cooking and collecting antiques with his wife. He especially loved spending time with his family and his grandchildren and helping family and friends fix things. The pain and sorrow will be felt in the hearts of his family, friends, and his loving wife.\n\nDue to Covid-19 restrictions, there will be a committal service at Sandhills State Veterans Cemetery, Fort Bragg, NC in his honor at a later date. There will be a public visitation from 6:00p.m. until 8:00p.m. at Adcock Funeral Home in Spring Lake on Friday, May 22, 2020.
