My first memory of Barry was when I was 10-12 years old. He spent the summer working for my dad. (Uncle Galee as Barry called him) on the farm doing field work,mowing,raking and baling hay stacking the bales in the barn. Mind you this was summer time and hot outside. Driving the ford tractor home from the field just in time for supper. After supper we would go outside sit on the picnic table and eat watermelon seeing who could spit the seed the farthest. Other things I remember was catching frogs and put them in quart jars full of rubbing alcohol to preserve them. The frog population really went down that summer! One more memory was when Barry took a old rear tire from the “junk” pile. The tire came off one of the tractors We went to Bloomfield to get some vinyl coated clothes line. He then proceeded to drill holes 1” apart around the bead part of the tire. Then lacing the clothes line into the drilled holes crisscrossing all around the tire weaving the inside of the tire. When the project was done we had a trampoline. Now days I think it would be called a redneck trampoline. These are just some of the things I remember from that summer. Watched the service online yesterday. Very warm and emotional for me. Thank you Barry for the memories. I will never forget. Roger

Sending all the love and prayers. I only met Berry last summer for the first time at the family reunion. He showed pure love and happiness to see Jeremiah and finally meet our daughter that he adored. He also treated my son and I like we had always been apart of the family. He instantly made us feel welcomed and loved. I will never forget how loving and caring he was! He was absolute honor to spend time with him! We love everyone and will hope to see y'all soon.

Condolences to the Wichmann family. My father Wayne Amiotte was close friends with Jerry and Dean and I imagine knew Barry well.

Barry was married to my wonderful aunt Carol and I had the pleasure of seeing how happy they made each other. I can only imagine the sorrow you are all going through at this time. Carol, Shannon and the rest of the family you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Prayers from Texas. Lots of amazing fond memories of times spent in Midland with Barry and his family. What a talented man he was. We harvested in Midland for years and continue today enjoying friendships with y’all’s family. Wish we could see more of everyone and see the kids families grow and the grandkids grow up. The Sawyers.

One never knows the breath of impact they leave on earth. Barry's impact ripples will move for years and years. Blessed to know him and will surely make it known to my teenage children his best advice to his teenage self. Blessings and prayers for all.

I knew Barry most of my life and he was always kind and would make us kids laugh. He was one of my dad's best friends and the two of them were usually found doing a project out in one of their garages. My prayers are with you Carol and all the family. We've lost a good man.

While I did not know Barry personally, I knew him through my good friend Carol. He was the love of her life and they were a great team! My sincere sympathy to all who loved and will miss him.🧡

I am so very sorry for your loss. I have many great memories of Barry when his family lived in Midland and also when he worked at Scotchmans. He was a devoted friend to my husband, Larry, and we all thought the world of him. So kind and helpful. At that time, we had built a house in Midland too, and he helped Larry add our back deck, among many other projects. Always happy. Always whistling. The two of them were always up to something and we missed him when he moved away. We often wondered where he landed and then happened to run into him one day years later at a fast food place. I did not recognize him at first because he had shaved off his heard. He had been through some hard times since we last saw him, but he still gad his smile and great attitude. I remember saying,” We should all be like Barry.” We lost Larry almost a year ago. When I saw Barry’s obituary, my first thought was, “ How happy Larry will be yo see him again. I wonder what the two of them are up to.” May God hold you close during this very hard time.
