Timothy Scott Barfield

Timothy Scott Barfield, born September 2, 1970 in Orlando, FL, went home to his Heavenly Father on September 23, 2020 in Mena, AR.  The adored and beloved husband of Sheryl (Dickerson) and father of Wyatt and Katherine, he fought a long, courageous battle against brain cancer.  He was a highly skilled commercial flooring installer until an injury disabled him.  In 2010, he became an expert stay at home dad to his precious twins.  He was the proudest father, fully engaged and passionate about raising Godly children.

A Florida boy, his youth was spent fishing in the Florida waterways with a pole in his hand.  In 2011 he moved his young family to Mena, AR.  In this uniquely loving and beautiful town, he planted Florida roots to flourish in the Arkansas soil.  Diagnosed with brain cancer in early 2019, his family temporarily relocated to Orlando for treatment at UF Cancer Treatment Center.  The Lord then opened doors to bring him back to his home in Mena that he loved so much.  He spent 3 joyous months back in Mena before spending 6 weeks in hospital.  The Lord blessed his family with Hospice angels long enough to bring him back to his family to laugh, love and pray together.  With his adoring wife by his side, he peacefully journeyed home to heaven.

He is celebrating a beautiful reunion in Heaven with his parents, Corbit and Lucille.

Tim is survived by his wife Sheryl and twins Wyatt and Katherine.  He is also survived by his loving siblings, Michael (Angela), Cindy Pettis, Kenneth (Carol), sisters in law Candy (Dickerson) Cannon (Tom), Ali McDonald, and Traci (Dickerson) Mayer.  He is also survived by a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and loyal friends.  He is also survived by Gordy and Cindy Brevik, family members who were very special to him.

A celebration of life is being planned; information will be available soon.
