John Bruce “J.B.” Baird, 81, of Siler City went to his heavenly home on Tuesday, June 1, 2021, surrounded by his family.

A native of Harnett County, coming to Siler City in 1957, J.B. was the son of Benjamin Dewey and Lossie Williams Baird. J.B. was a member of Moon’s Chapel Baptist Church where he was a member of the Senior Adult Sunday School Class and previously served as a Deacon. He was the owner/operator of Baird Sales for 41 years. J.B. loved listening to bluegrass music and Elvis Presley, and anything to do with antique or vintage cars. He enjoyed the cruise-ins when he was not working or spending time outside camping.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Mary Joyce Culberson Baird; and brother, Henry Baird.

He is survived by his sons, Dr. Bruce Baird and wife Sharon of Kinston, and Ben Baird and wife Sandy of Bear Creek; brothers, Jesse Baird of Siler City, and Danny Baird of Stedman; grandchildren, Joshua and wife Ruthanne, Luke and wife Anna, Ethan, Caleb, Jacob, Phillip, and Hannah Baird; and great-granddaughters, Emma and Kinsley Baird.

Mr. Baird laid in repose on Thursday, June 3, 2021, from 1 to 5 p.m. at Smith & Buckner Funeral Home, 230 North Second Avenue, Siler City, N.C. The funeral service was held Friday, June 4, 2021, at Moon’s Chapel Baptist Church, with Dr. Patrick Fuller officiating. Burial followed in the church cemetery. The family received friends after the service in the church Fellowship Hall, and other times at the home of Ben and Sandy Baird in Bear Creek.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Moon’s Chapel Baptist Church, 175 Moon’s Chapel Road, Siler City, N.C. 27344.
