Wayne Barth, age 75 of DeGraff, Ohio passed away peacefully at his home November 18, 2019.
He was born December 26, 1943, in Clinton, Missouri to the late Wilbur G. and Ruby C. Barth. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Sue Thomas.
Survivors include his loving wife of forty eight years, Joyce Barth; sons, Galen Barth, Kevin (Nikki) Barth, and Nathan (Michelle) Barth; a brother, Roger Barth; grandsons, Brayden Barth, Carson Barth, and Daric Barth and nieces and nephews.
An active member and Sunday School teacher at the Mt. Tabor Church of God, Wayne is now a member of the eternal congregation. He was a Veteran of the United States Army and graduated from Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg, Missouri in 1965. Wayne retired from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in 2004.
Wayne and Joyce enjoyed traveling to Church of God camp meetings and also took many vacation trips together. Wayne loved being with family and so enjoyed his Saturday morning phone calls with his brother Roger. Born into a farming family, he always had a special place in his heart for farming.
He especially enjoyed letting his grandsons drive his Mahindra tractor which was once owned by his father. In addition, his grandsons got to experience the thrill of riding and driving around the field in the old Toyota pickup. Above all, Wayne’s greatest desire was to be a good Christian example and to faithfully attend church services when the doors were open. His caring and compassionate personality will be missed by all.
The family will receive friends November 22, 2019 from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. at the Mt. Tabor Church of God in DeGraff, where the funeral service will be held November 23, 2019 at 11 a.m. with Pastor Nathan Price officiating.
Interment will follow the funeral service at the Greenwood-Union Cemetery with Brother Kerry Snapp officiating and military honors provided by the Logan County Veterans Honor Guard.
The arrangements are in the care of the staff of the Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Bellefontaine.
