Clifford Burton Barrows  (April 6, 1923 – November 15, 2016)

Cliff Barrows, who provided the soundtrack for Billy Graham’s global crusades
for decades and remained a close friend to the Charlotte-born evangelist,
died Tuesday at Carolinas HealthCare System-Pineville after a brief illness.

Barrows, who lived in Marvin in Union County, had traveled the world with
Graham since the earliest crusades in 1947, in Charlotte and across the
country. The two men met in Asheville in 1945 and soon formed a team
that became the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. He served in
multiple roles, as song leader, choir director and emcee for the Billy
Graham Crusades.
