Barry Jerome Gillespie, 67, of Mauldin, passed away surrounded by his family on Wednesday, March 31, 2021.
Born in Greenville, SC he was a son of the late Thomas and Sara Hudson Gillespie.
Barry was of the Baptist faith. He loved to predict the weather and was better at predicting than the news! He also loved sports, particularly the San Francisco 49ers, basketball, and baseball (anything but the Braves), and was always one to pull for the underdog.
He is survived by his two loving brothers, Lance Gillespie and wife, Stephanie of Mauldin, and Brian Gillespie and wife, Mandy of Piedmont; five nieces and nephews, Matthew Gillespie, Madison Gillespie, Michelle Buck, Kevin Gillespie, and Allison Lee; three adoring great nieces and nephews, Gavin and Rileigh Buck, and Madison and Kayden Lee; and friends, step-niece and nephew, Helen-Shelley Wilson and Benjamin Bagwell.
In addition to his parents, Barry was preceded in death by his sister, Gloria Gillespie, and one brother, Thomas Gillespie.
A Graveside service will be held on Friday, April 2, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. in Hillcrest Memorial Park, 2410 Gentry Memorial Hwy., Pickens SC, 29671, and will be officiated by the Reverend Dwight Wagner. All attendees are strongly encouraged to wear masks and follow CDC guidelines on social distancing.
