Born February 16, 1965, in Waynesburg, the son of the late James L. and Marie (Stockdale) Watson of
Barry was a Greene County resident his whole life. He graduated from West Greene High School in 1983.
Barry attended the Rogersville United Methodist Church and the First United Methodist Church when he
resided in Waynesburg. He had a strong faith in God and recently invited a neighborhood child to attend
church with him. He started working at age 16 at the Waynesburg Shop-n-Save to save money to buy
his first love, a Chevrolet Camaro that he painted candy apple red. He went on to work as a Project
Manager at Chapman Corporation for over 20 years and Mark West and Matrix for a combined six years.
He also worked as a Sales Specialist for Lowes in Uniontown. He enjoyed taking his daughter and her
friends shopping and to the movies, shooting guns with his son, restoring his Chevy pickup truck and
hanging out with his favorite dog Bubby. He loved spending time with his mother while she was alive.
He also loved singing, including singing with his best friend’s band while in high school. His voice could
be heard for miles as he mowed the lawn, made dinner for his children’s friends or while doing a menial
task. His voice will be greatly missed.
