To Barry’s Family, What a great man, with an unforgettable smile that we have lost. We met Barry years ago riding motorcycles. He waited up until 3 AM to make sure my wife and I made it safely to Myrtle Beach Bike Week. After our second trip to Myrtle Beach, Barry said let’s take a ride. Then he said I just bought that house. Our jaws dropped, he just gave that smile and said we were welcome anytime. How time flies. I was lucky enough to see him not to long ago and B.S.about past times. I will miss him beeping his horn to me in the morning at work. Rest In Peace my Friend. Sincerely, Greg and Brandie Heiser

Heartfelt condolences to Barry’s family and friends. Upon purchasing our first home in UBE, we couldn’t have asked for a better neighbor. We were fortunate to live next to Barry for several years when our children were young and got to know him very well. He’d do anything for anyone and give you the shirt off his back. He was a quiet and soft spoken man who worked hard, adored his family, and loved to ride his Harley. I’ll forever miss his sheepish grin and have fond memories of looking out the window to see him shooting hoops in the backyard with our son Zach. Rest easy, Barry…

I am deeply saddened to hear of Barry’s passing. I will miss that special grin and his kind, gentle soul. I met Barry around ten years ago and always looked forward to seeing him. Though I only saw him every few months he became one of my favorite people, and I always enjoyed our conversations. He was usually my last appointment of the day at the salon and he always made sure I got to my car safely if I was working alone. Sending prayers to his family and dearest friends. Rest In Peace, Barry. You will be missed.

To my nephews, Grover, Walt and Kevin , so sorry to have missed seeing Barry one last time. Didn’t see much of him as a grown man, but what I remember from earlier years was that sweet devilish smile, almost like he had a secret. He had a quiet laid back personality. I can see why he was so well liked. Deepest condolences from Uncle Roy, myself, Wendy ,Roy, Nancy and David. You will be missed by many Barry RIP.
