CHASRLOTTE - David Emory Bar­wick, 71, passed away July 19, 2018. He was born De­cem­ber 4, 1946 in Fayet­teville, North Carolina to the late Emory Earl and Ruby Davis Bar­wick. He grad­u­ated from North Carolina State Uni­ver­sity in 1969 with a B. S. in Tex­tile Engi­neer­ing and worked with Burling­ton In­dus­tries be­fore serv­ing his R.O.T.C. com­mit­ment in the U. S. Army.

David re­ceived a Master’s in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion from Har­vard Uni­ver­sity in 1975 and moved to Char­lotte, North Carolina to join First Union Na­tional Bank, which ul­ti­mately be­came Wells Fargo. He re­tired in 2005 and en­joyed a sec­ond ca­reer for twelve years with the In­vest­ment Ad­vi­sory Group in Char­lotte.

A gen­tle ob­server of the hu­man con­di­tion, he was known for an ever-present dry and easy wit. David was a cross­word puz­zle master, and loved tweak­ing jokes and sto­ries to per­fec­tion. A nat­u­ral care­taker, he was happiest with fam­ily and friends. He loved host­ing din­ner par­ties, sail­ing the Caribbean, trav­el­ing abroad, and clas­sic hard rock, the Rolling Stones above all oth­ers.

David is sur­vived by his wife of 48 years, Mar­garet (Peg) Masa­lo­nis Bar­wick; his daugh­ter, Tracy Bar­wick Ro­bi­son (Dan); and grand­chil­dren, Mary Mar­garet and Davis Holt Ro­bi­son. He is also sur­vived by his brother, Daniel Lin­ton Bar­wick and fam­ily of Columbia, South Carolina.
