    I am privileged to have known Barry. He was a straight shooter who shared the love of his personal savior, Jesus Christ. Barry's many talents were known, but he never bragged about them. He was a good example of humility by the grace of God. I will remember him fondly.

    We will definitely miss Barry at Neodesha Flea Market. He was always so helpful telling what items were that came in & we had no idea what they were. He'd get a good laugh. So sorry to hear of his passing. I knew he hadn't been feeling well but nothing serious. We'll sure miss him.

    I am so saddened by the news of Barry's passing. Such fond memories of Barry in Neodasha come to mind... walking to the drugstore for penny candies, sharing a super tall soft serve at Dairy Queen, and balancing on the railroad tracks at the park down the road. We will cherish Barry's art (the sunset buffalo water color and broken wagon pastel that were Mith's) even more. I hope you are comforted knowing that Barry is now at peace with His Father, he so faithfully served. God bless you, Rhonda, and please take care.

    Ronda, I am so sorry for your loss. As you know, Barry and I were good friends as little kids and during high school. We spent a lot of time together. I have fond memories of Barry and me playing with my electric train and little wooden soldiers, finding inventive ways to blow things up with fireworks, and just generally horsing around.

    Rest in peace, my friend.

    I'm so very sorry about your loss! I'm going to miss seeing Barry around town either at the church or store but, most of the time on his mower when in season! Once again I'm sorry about his passing seemed so sudden I will be praying for the entire family.
