I would just like to say what an amazing man Barry was, and how he really lived his faith. We dated in high school, and he was the kindest, best kind of a man there was. He was forgiving and loving, and brought many to see and accept the Lord through his life. I look forward to seeing him, maybe in the near future. His wife Kathy is so beautiful and precious, and their wonderful family, and I can imagine theyve missed him terribly, and am thankful they will see him again.

Dear Kathy and family, I continue to think of you all and Barry often. Truly a light has passed from this earth, and he and you all have been a blessing to many. It's so hard and sad to know he is not with you on this earth, but there is that comfort of knowing he walked through the door right into Christs arms. I continue to pray for Gods peace, comfort and strength as you miss him.

Just know that Barry is now in the arms of Jesus. I worked with Barry for 11 years, and he was always a very happy person and so kind he would always stop and talk to you no matter where he was at and he would always say Happy Friday Eve. May God continue to bless and comfort his family in their time of grief. Truly, truly he will be greatly missed.

Kathy, Sarah, Rebekah & Josiah, We have such good memories of all of you at Maranatha Chapel. Kathy, I don't know why, but I always remember the story you shared about Barry going to the store and spending all grocery money you had left on a large chunk of cheese. Not sure why I always found that so humorous. Maybe because I always saw Barry as so intelligent and level headed. :) We enjoyed fun times with you at Maranatha. Our hearts are so sad for you right now. It's like he went to sleep and walked into the arms of Jesus. "Well done, good and faithful servant". Lord, minister peace and comfort. In Jesus name, Doug and Daylene Miller

I am very sorry to hear of the untimely passing of my cousin Barry. My condolences to his wife and children and my other cousins Joann, Glenn and Gene. Being somewhat older, I didn't know my cousins well but Victor was my favorite uncle and Aurea was one of the most gracious ladies I've ever known.
