Barry was devoted to his family and a very generous man. He will be sorely missed. We'll never forget the fun we had, like the time we tried to get out of the locked room to get the stolen hot sauce! Our condolences to Sue and the rest of the family. Phil and Sue Wetzel.

I worked with Barry for many years. I am so sorry for your loss. He always put in a gruff exterior to some but I knew he was a teddy bear deep inside. Please remember all the good times he brought you all in life. May he Rest In Peace and May God shine perpetual light upon him.🙏🏻
