Obituary for David Michael Barlow

David M. Barlow, age 78 of Mableton, passed away Wednesday, July 18, 2018. A graveside service will be held 11 am Tuesday, July 24, 2018 at the Riverview Memorial Park Cemetery. David was born in Iowa, but he and his siblings moved frequently due to his father’s service in the Army. The family spent three years in Japan following the end of world war II. David made many friends during this once in a lifetime opportunity. Following in his father’s footsteps, David also served in the Army spending time in Korea following that war. Following his military service David lived in Willimantic, Connecticut and spent time as a sports writer working for multiple local newspapers. He then switched careers to newspaper print layout. In the late 1970’s David moved to Georgia and was a resident of Cobb County for over 40 years. Known for his kindness and generosity, David frequently helped friends in need. One Christmas he selflessly helped an underprivileged family with four young children by donating food and presents to bring a bit of cheer to their holiday. This was just one of the many examples of his caring and generosity. David was also a lover of animals having countless four-legged friends throughout his life.
David was preceded in death by his wife Carolyn Kelly Barlow and his brother Wayne Barlow. Surviving are son David Barlow, daughter Kelly Lowry and his dear companion Nancy Henson, sisters and brothers, Mary Lou, Jean, Pat, Marilyn, Robert and Arthur, several grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, and close friends Krystal, Angie, Marie, and Jamey. Carmichael Funeral Home in Smyrna is in charge of arrangements. Flowers can be sent to Carmichael Funeral Home in Smyrna. Donations to the American Cancer Society in honor of David can be made at
