Barry was a kind and considerate chauffeur and friend to our elderly father, Bud Mays. He also provided our family rides when we came to Cleveland. We always looked forward to seeing Barry and listening to his stories of American High Reach, fishing, and of course, the Browns. He will be deeply missed.

Barry I am sure you will be telling stories in heaven. You are a legend in the lift industry and among early JLG dealers.
Your salesmanship and abilities to make a deal were second to none. My condolences and prayers are with you and your family.

Barry lived a life as rich as his baritone voice. The stories he would tell sounded like they needed to be paired with a comedy television show. We even tapped his musical talents in the high school years for our band. Barry was curious and always off to some new adventure. Well done, my friend. I will miss you.

Brian, Diane and Sandy. So sorry to learn that Barry passed. Barry always seemed larger than life when we were growing up, and reading about some of his other interests and passion confirms that. He will be missed. Condolences and love to all the family.

Barry was a client of our insurance agency. He would often pop into the office for a quick visit when he was nearby. He was always good for a story. His energy was unmatchable. You will be missed. Condolences to the Tutin family.

Many of us will remember Barry for his beautiful singing voice and genuine love for all. He did his own personal ministry with the elderly, for whom he felt deep empathy. He kept in touch with all of us from Bay High ‘69, and spread only good will. Life lived well, faithful servant of our Lord. My most sincere love and comfort for the family.
