Bobby "Cob" Barrett

May 19, 1940 — May 3, 2018

Mr. Bobby Barrett, known to family and friends as “Cob”, 77, of Woodbury passed away unexpectedly on May 3, 2018. He was preceded in death by his parents, C. L. Barrett and Louise Gill Barrett; brothers, Jimmy Barrett, Pearson Barrett, Donald Wayne Barrett, and Joe Barrett.
Survivors include his loving companion, Betty Bailey; brother, Dee (Joan) Barrett of Readyville; sisters, Shirley (Allen) Moody of Murfreesboro, Mary (Tom) Effler of Readyville; best friend and cousin, Billy Gerald Barrett; numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, great-great nieces and nephews, and a host of cousins.

Mr. Bobby was an avid outdoors man. He would rather be outside hunting, fishing, or working on the farm than anywhere else. Many of the deer and turkey he harvested were shared with family and friends. He was a good hearted and hard-working person, even if a little rough and tumble, fearless one. He was always willing and able to help his friends and family. If you could get him to sit down it would be to watch an episode of Gunsmoke, an old western, or a baseball game. He loved to be with his family and friends having a good laugh and sharing a story.

Visitation will be held at Smith Funeral Home on Friday, May 4, 2018 from 4-8 pm. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2018 in the Smith Funeral Home chapel at 1 pm. Richard Burks will officiate. Interment will be in Riverside Cemetery. In lieu of flowers and in honor of his passion for being outdoors, donations may be given to the TWRA. Share memories and condolences with the family at Smith Funeral Home, 303 Murfreesboro Rd. Woodbury, TN 615-563-5337
