Barry was a good christian man. A friend to all if he saw you working he would always be there to help. Once my wife and started to build a deck, with in minutes Barry and Nancy were there to help. Then all of the neighbors came to help. By noon the 16'x20' deck was finished . Each neighbour brought food and we had lunch on that new deck. That was who Barry was a servant of god .He will be greatly missed.
Barry was a sweet friend in my Sunday School class. We all loved him and Nancy and loved his input in the class. We will ALL miss him.
I did not know Mr Barry on a personal basis, but to know Mrs Nancy was knowing Mr Barry. John 15:13
Barry and I rode the school bus together when I was in elementary school and he was in middle school at Turrell and he was always a good guy. May God give peace and comfort to all of the family and friends.
