‘Small but mighty’ No. 56 remembered in Meigs


Thursday evening saw the Eastern Local high school football field awash in flame as friends, family, community members and fellow football players held a candlelight vigil for Wyatt Barber, 9, who passed away during football practice Monday due to an unknown heart condition. Speeches were given, with lanterns and balloons released into the sky to honor No. 56, the number Barber wore. At the end, players, with their candles, created a lit “56” in the middle of the field with the rest of the attendees gathered around them in support. Barber’s funeral is set for 11 a.m. Monday, Nov. 9, at First Southern Baptist Church in Pomeroy. For anyone who wishes to help the family, a GoFundMe page has been created in Barber’s honor at www.gofundme.com/c58anjf9. Locally, an account has been set up at Farmers Bank, created by a friend of the family. All six Farmers Bank locations in Meigs, Gallia and Mason counties are accepting deposits. All proceeds go to benefit the family. Ask to contribute to the Wyatt Barber fund, or mail any amount to Farmers Bank, 211 W. Second St., Pomeroy, OH 45769.
