Barry was a die-hard Denver Broncos fan, and loved everything and anything to do with the Broncos. He was also a big fan of NASCAR racing. Saying Barry enjoyed fishing would be an understatement, he had a passion for it and would go as often as he could. For anyone who knew Barry knew what his relationship with coffee was like, he was obsessed with coffee! Above all else Barry’s pride and joys in life were his children and grandchildren whom will miss him deeply.

Because Barry wasn't a flower enthusiast, the family would prefer, if you wish to send a memorial, chocolates or scratch-offs, Barry's favorites.
