    candle 7Barry was a wonderful person, he knew no strangers. I met him through my dad Henry Robley years ago and he has helped me and my family out a lot. May God hold you in his hands now and forever you will be in our hearts. To his family I pray that you will be fine and May God be with you always.

    “When I come to the end of my journey
    And I travel my last weary mile
    Just forget if you can that I ever frowned
    And remember only the smile.” – Lyman Hancock

    I wish I knew words to tell all of you how sorry I am. No one should have this many losses in so short a span of time.

    I am so sorry to learn of Barry’s passing. I met him through the dealership and spoke with him many times. He was always so friendly and always shook my hand. It didn’t take much time to tell that he was a very knowledgeable and proficient technician. I also heard from others at the dealership that he was the “go to man” when it came to cars. I believe Barry fought the good fight and is now home. My deepest sympathies to his family and friends.

    I do not know exactly what to say. Barry was a very special friend to me and to many. We shared many good times together, usually involving vehicles. He will be sorely missed by many. Barry was a good man; I know he is now home with our Lord. May God bless and comfort you Laura and Brian in this the saddest of times.

    Barry will be missed by so many of us who knew him from the car business. He was always ready to help with our car problems–even when he was not feeling well.

    Laura, Bryan, Stephanie, we are all praying for you and for Barry.

    I grew up across the street from Barry. He was a few years older but always had time for me when we were young. I enjoyed many hours playing kickball and riding bikes together. He helped me get into modeling as a kid. Though we haven’t been in touch in years, I will always have fond memories of Barry.
