1953 - 2021
BARRY ANTHONY CULOTTA November 16, 1953 - July 20, 2021 Barry Culotta passed peacefully in his sleep on Tuesday, July 20th. Barry was born in Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania, and was a graduate of Duquesne University, Pittsburgh. He moved to Las Vegas in 1974 and worked for the State of Nevada, first with the developmentally disabled and then had a 20-year career with Nevada Aging & Disability Services Division as a social worker. The many notes from clients and families thanking him for his services attest to how well he was liked by the people he served. Barry was pre-deceased by his mother (Jacqueline Aglietti Culotta) and his brother, Mike, who was a long time DJ with radio station KOMP. The brothers attended many live concerts together and got to meet many of the members of their favorite groups. He is survived by his cousins in Pennsylvania including Cheryl Hunsberger. Donations in Barry's name can be made to his favorite charity, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Barry was a beautiful and good person. I worked with Barry at DRC (State) and I really appreciate his kindness and fairness with all his staff. I remember him bringing his lunch his mom prepared for him. I thought that was so nice. He will be missed. We need more people like him. The world would be a better place.
