Barry Benjamin Wilder

January 19, 1957 — April 24, 2023

Barry Benjamin Wilder, 66, of Greenville, SC passed away surrounded by family on April 24, 2023, after battling cancer. Barry marched to the beat of his own drum and left behind many family traditions.

Barry was born on January 19, 1957, to the late Charles and Avienell Wilder. He graduated from Parker High School in 1975 where he earned his “PHD” and then went on to work as a diesel mechanic. Barry had the art of storytelling and a natural talent for making people laugh. He continued to make others laugh until the end. He was involved in the lives of his family daily and every memory includes him. He believed quality time was the best gift one could give, and the gift best remembered. Everyone that knew Barry has a story to share. He is currently on a boat in heaven, listening to John Prine and reeling in all the fish.

Barry is survived by his three children, Bo Wilder (Lacy Wilder), Mackenzie Chastain (Ryan Chastain), and Hayley Jarrio (Kyle Jarrio). Grandchildren Emmylou Wilder, Reed and Reese Chastain, Lyndi Jarrio, and four legged grandchildren- Hank and Penny. He is survived by all his siblings, Daryl Wilder (Georgann) Terry Wilder (Kathy) Teresa Norris, Dwayne Wilder, and Keith Wilder (Teresa) Along with many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.

The family will be receiving friends on April 29, 2023, at his daughter’s residence, 240 Cunningham Road, Travelers Rest, SC from 2:00-4:00 pm.
