Worked with Barry in Indianapolis, He was an excellent, caring die maker, that could do anything that you asked of him, and you could be guaranteed that it was done right. The good die young Barry, unfortunately it leaves loving family and friends behind, that will miss you forever. May the good Lord watch over and protect your family in their time of need. May you rest in peace my friend.

I am shocked and saddened by this loss. He has always been a great friend of mine as we grew up. Have lost touch over the years but still one of the greatest guys of the class of 1976. My heart and prayers for his family and loved ones.
