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.

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.

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.
