Barry’s daughter, Amanda said:  As most of you know, Barry, my dad, passed away this past Monday morning. I can’t express how much of a great man he was. As a dad, husband, son, uncle, brother and friend. He never failed to make those around him smile. He was always the one to crack a joke. I used to think he was so tough on my brother and I but now I wish he was here so I could say thank you. Thank you for being my dad. Thank you for always being there for us. Thank you for being that ray of sunshine you was. Thank you for being you. He was caring, thoughtful, and just all around amazing. His death was very unexpected and we’re coming up really short in the amount we need to ensure he has a proper and beautiful service.

Our family appreciates any donation, prayers, support, and/or shares.

God bless everyone.
