Obituary

 

Barry L. Wingate, 56, of Yulee passed away June 21, 2021 at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville.

Barry was a life-long resident of the Yulee area and a member of the River of Praise Worship Center.

He was predeceased by his father, Roy C. Wingate.

Survivors include his wife of 30 years, Tina Wingate of Yulee; son Brandon Wingate of Yulee; daughters Heather Wingate, also of Yulee, and Casey Wingate of Callahan.  Also surviving are his mother, Barbara Jean Wingate of Yulee; brother and sister in law, Allen and Ann Wingate of Yulee; sister, Connie Douglas, also of Yulee; five grandchildren Joshua, Emily, Bradley, Mason and Riley; and several nieces and nephews.

Barry was a devoted husband and father with a love like no other for his wife. He never met a stranger. He loved a good joke and had a smile and laughter that could light up a room. His passion for baseball stemmed from coaching at the Yulee Little League, umpiring for the schools, to just enjoying a good Yankees game.

During his career as a welder he had several projects that he was proud to be a part of. He loved to tell how the company he worked for built the Yankees Stadium (his favorite team).

The viewing will be held at 6:00- 8:00pm. Thursday, June 24th, at Green Pine Funeral Home 96218 Green Pine Rd. Yulee, Fl. 32097.
