  6. I worked with Barry for a couple of months. That obituary that says he “cherished” his granddaughter isn’t kidding. As I recall he had “Goompa” listed as his job title on his business card. Barry made me smile and I’m sorry to hear he has left us so soon.

  7. Barry was passionate about his Lion’s Club and Lionism, but most especially about the Texas Lion’s Camp. I remember well more than once his emotion as he spoke and gave presentations about the Camp. He was very active in the eyeglass program, collecting eyeglasses from eye doctors and Lions all over town. Barry changed lives, and it is a shame he had to go so soon.

  8. To all of Barry’s family… We are so very sorry for your loss. May God comfort each of you during this time and days to come. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
    Tony & Becky (Sitton) Westbrook and family

  11. Jennifer and Tammy I have always appreciated Barry’s warm and friendly manner. I have always sensed he would do anything possible to serve the Kingdom of the Lord or his fellow man especially those of the household of faith. He was the kind of man that if a job needed to be done all you had to do was let Barry know. When christins like him leave they are always missed. God has blessed us all to know Barry. May He continue to bless you again as you grieve.
