The only obituary I know of has been placed by his family in GA with their funeral home. You can check it out online at http://www.webfh.com/fh/obituaries/obituary.c...
The funeral home has a site under Mason Funeral Home, Summerville, GA.

Thank you for your concern. Barry was a very tender hearted and a caring person. His, so called "sister", or immediate family acted so concered, ask them the last time they talked to him. Barry is in a better place and I will join him one day, because he knew who loved him.

Was there not a service in FL? I thought that he was married but there was no wife listed in his obituary.

Barry is a very close relative. He is loved deeply by me. Myself and one other person was the only two family members who was there for him in the last ten years. Things got a little rough for him in the last three months.No, they got very rough. We tried to get him to come to georgia, bt he did'nt want any other family member to know. With everything that was going on between him and his wife he was very depresed. She did everything to push him over the edge,and it finally worked!!! So I went to Florida and brought his remains to Georgia. That's where he wanted to be.Yes he did have a so called wife. She just
didn't care enough to either do a memorial service or obituary!!!!! ALL I WANTED WAS HIM WITH ME BECAUSE I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT IS WHAT HE WANTED! Finally he is resting in peace. As far as his wife not being listed in the obituary in the summerville news, none of his immedant family never met her. Which after the last 6 months she wasn't worth meeting!!! Barry deserved a hell of a lot more than he got, no thanks to his family!!!! I think I have said enough, but there is plenty more if only the truth is known. Which it will eventually all come out!!!!He is missed more than he will ever know, and my heart aches every day because I can't talk to him!!! I LOVED HIM WITH ALL MY HEART!!!!!!!!! I want everyone to know that he was not at the memorial service they had on cloudland, and none of them cared enough to go to Florida to try and bring him back home!!!!!!!!THAT SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!

Please try to explain to the readers why you took it upon yourself to lie to Barry's parents. His parents paid for having him cremated. You told his mother over the phone that you were on your way back with the ashes and would give them to her as soon as you got back. Also, if you are such a good parent and can judge others, please explain to the readers who raised your children. Also, how many times have you been married? If his wife was so bad, how come you stayed in such close contact with his wife while you were in Florida.

True relative on the surface you might concerned about Barry and say how much you love him BUT aren't you the one that promised to go to Florida to try to get him to get help BUT never went and aren't YOU the one that cares so much about your own family that your ex-husband raised one of your kids and your parents raised the other so that says a lot about your character and YOUR love for your family.So it's just my opinion you should take a good look at your own life before you condeme other people for their relationships with their family. It is my guess you have made a HUGE MISTAKE with this family.

true relative im just a little curious how you can condem his family and his memorial, there were 200 friends and family there. Where were you?
How do you know what its like to love a child, you didnt raise yours. How did you know what Barry wanted, did he tell you he was dying? You say his family didnt go to Fl. to take care of him, didnt you tell his mother you were bringing him back to her. All you did was lye to her so she would pay for it becouse you couldnt afford it. True relative dont try to makr your self look good, everyone knows what you really are. How many times have you been married, a real family person. How many times have you had DUI's, a real role modle. Your a nice one to judge anyone.

Im sorry that it has come down to all this name calling. Shelly you told me when you called me to tell me that my brother was dead that you were going to fl and bringing his ashes back to mama. You could have made a phone call earlier and told me how bad he was and I might could have helped him. I could have at least tried.No matter what you say or how bad you try to make me look I loved him and i miss him. And you airing all of this behind everones back shows me what kind of relative you really are.

To Barry's Brother,
My husband & I were Barry's neighbors. Our family would like to send to yours our deepest sympathies.
His friends and neighbors in Lakeland were saddened that there was to be no memorial service for him here. It is very nice to know that there were so many that came the the service in Ga.
I hope some of the strong feelings aired here can be put aside and the focus directed toward Barry, his life and memory. We miss him.
With fond regards. lga

To lga,
Thank you for your kind words about Barry. Regardless of what "true Relative" says on this or any other forum, his family did love him and feels as though they were cheated out of paying their last private respects because she took it upon herself to play judge and jury, and convict his family on what little she knew about the entire situation. If she was so concerned, why did she not pick up the phone and call Barry's brother. She did promise Barry's wife one time she was on the way down there. She called her back and told her she had forgotten her cell phone and went back home. Where was the concern? Was it for Barry, or was it for her cell phone? Maybe "true relative" will kind of fade out of sight and not be heard from again.

Though I hadn't spoken to Barry in some time, he was very dear to me. I don't mean to pry into matters that are of no concern to anyone except family,but his death weighs heavy on my heart. Please, could someone besides true relative tell me something about his death? Was it unexpected? I don't want to cause further heartache, just understand.

I am a family member. The official autopsy report will not be back for a few months, but I was told by the medical examiner that his death appears to have been caused from a new time-released medication he was taking. Thank you for being a friend to Barry. Thank you, too, for not believing what a relative thinks about her kinfolks. It is a shame that she would have the guts to criticize Barry's family at a time of loss like this and try to cause them embarassment.
Unfortunately, that is the way she has been all of her life to friends and relatives alike.

True relative, concerning Barry and his family, which I know. I know they were not able to travel to Florida at the time due to health reasons. That is why they depended on your word to bring Barry home. I didnt know Barry, but I know his family, and you should be very ashamed of not bringing Barry back to his mom.
