Born July 7, 1931 in Pitt County he was the son of the late Jesse Wilbur Barfield and Elizabeth Deaver Barfield and was preceded in death by his sister, Sara B. Persinger and brother, Bobby G.

He worked in the maintenance department at Weyerhaeuser Corporation and owned Curt's Locksmith Shop until his retirement.

He battled sickness for the better part of his adult life, beginning with colon cancer and later esophageal cancer.

Martin Barfield and wife Sandra of Chocowinty, N.C.; sister, Peggy James of Colorado Springs, CO.; grandchildren, Caroline Allen and husband Sam, Beth McDonald and Curtis Tripp Barfield.
