Barry and his wife Stacey moved to Pensacola, FL in 1990. Husband, father, Pop Pops, uncle, mentor, coach, and friend were just some of the many names used to describe him. Barry was a man who believed that memories were more valuable
than possessions. He cherished moments with family and friends over all else. Barry thrived when given a moment to offer encouragement to someone in need. His legacy of love, selflessness, compassion, leadership, and a humbled heart will live on through the lives of all the men and women he touched by just being the amazing Godly man that he was.

Barry’s greatest accomplishment in life was his amazing 31-year duet with his beautiful wife Stacey. If you spoke to Barry you would hear about his love for his beautiful bride, and the pride he had for his sons. He would tell you. “I’m not a wealthy man according to the world… but I am the richest man in the world just look at my wife and boys!”
