Memphis, TN

Barry Boeving Paxton, 71, died at Grace Healthcare, May 3, 2017 due to Glioblastoma brain cancer. He passed the same date as his beloved grandfather 51 years ago. Like everything else he endured his struggle with cancer with great strength and resolve. Barry is predeceased by his mother, Evelyn B. Paxton, brother, Randy, and leaves his brothers, Ken and Bobby; niece, Renee Lawrence and nephews, Jason and Bryan Paxton. He also leaves his sister-in-law, Gail who deserves special thanks for giving Barry such loving and dedicated care through the years. He was so lucky to have had her for a Sister-in-Law.

Barry ran track for Catholic High School. He loved lifting weights in his youth. Boy was he strong! He was also proud of being a finalist in a regional spelling bee. Barry also worked for Stratton-Warren warehouse in Memphis for several years but Barry's main focus in life was his family. He performed many acts of charity and kindness not to only to them but to anyone he knew in need. Barry was guided in life by a true sense of spirituality, the kind of faith that we all wish we could have. He told his brother in all sincerity and belief he was ready to go when God called. We know God was ready for him.

We wish to thank his wonderful caregivers at Grace Healthcare and Crossroads Hospice. Also to University of Tennessee Liver Transplant team and clinic for all their care these last 9 years.

Graveside services will be at 11 a.m., Saturday, May 6 at Forest Hill East Cemetery, 2440 Whitten Road, Memphis.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Barry's name to , Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute, Crossroads Hospice, or Grace Healthcare.
