Alabama Trucking family mourns the loss of Pam Kilpatrick

The Alabama Trucking family is mourning the loss of Pam Kilpatrick, the wife of Alabama Trucking Foundation President and former Alabama Trucking Association Board Chairman Terry Kilpatrick, and the longtime owner of Billy Barnes Enterprises in Frisco City, Ala.

Pam was a devoted wife, loving mother of five children, and beloved grandmother of ten grandchildren. Her home was a place of warmth and connection, and her gentle spirit radiated love and kindness to all those who crossed her path.

“Ms. Pam was simply an angel, and anyone who ever met her knew she walked the walk with her faith,” said Chris Cooper, Chairman of the Alabama Trucking Association. “Our hearts are with Terry and the entire fam

ily as they grieve the loss of a special woman who impacted the lives of so many.”

According to those who knew her best, Pam’s unwavering faith in Jesus Christ was the foundation of her life, and she dedicated herself to serving Him and His people with a humble heart. She was a true servant leader who never sought recognition for her work but gave all the glory to her Savior. Her unwavering faith, joy, and laughter were contagious, and her peace embraced all who knew her.

To her husband, Pam was his honeybunch and his Jewel for 47 years. To her children, she was a loving mother who instilled in them the importance of knowing Jesus Christ. And to her grandchildren, she became like one of them, joining them in their world with every ounce of her childlike spirit.

“Terry always described Ms. Pam as a ‘Prayer Warrior,’ and everyone knows how important she was to her community, her church, and her family,” said Mark Colson, president, and CEO of the Alabama Trucking Association. “She was a strong, brave, and kind woman, and now we become the prayer warriors for the Kilpatrick family, to lift them up and pray God’s powerful mercy and grace over them as they mourn her loss and celebrate her life and legacy.”

Pam’s legacy of faith, love, and service will live on through her family and all those whose lives she touched. May she rest in peace in the glorious presence of her beloved Jesus.

She is survived by her husband of 46 years, Terry, daughter Taryn Kilpatrick, sons Bryan Kilpatrick (Morgan), Joshua Kilpatrick (Jessie), Todd Kilpatrick (Mandy), and daughter Natasha Kilpatrick, 10 grandchildren (Clair, Marshall, Dan, Emma, Caroline, Ezra, Mackenzie, Camille, Allie, and JR), brother Dan E. Pridgen Jr., and godchild Alina Weatherford (Ryan), along with a host of extended family and friends who adored her.
