Barry was my former 4-H leader in Campbell County Tennessee in the horse program. He taught me so much about horses and life. Some of the best times in my childhood were hanging out at the barn with Barry, my friends, and the horses. I love you Barry. Thank you for the great memories and life lessons. You will be missed.

Before he returned to Sparta, Barry was a University of Tennessee County Extension Agent for Campbell County. He provided a valuable service to the County's agriculture and cattle farmers. He made himself available to them whenever they needed his assistance, day or night. He was also the youth leader for the Campbell County 4-H Horse Project. Barry went beyond teaching the 4-H Club children how to safely care for, ride and show horses. He taught them values, work ethics and life skills. He was a hardworking and effective educator. Barry will never be forgotten by the lives he touched in Campbell County.

It was always a good time when Barry came into the office. Trivia Questions and a good visit. He will be missed.

Our hearts are so sad. Our all time favorite horse trainer and FRIEND. Our family LOVED him like a brother. A saying we always treasure he would say, "Win, Lose, or Draw, We are having fun now!" We will certainly miss that Christmas poetry. Rest in peace our treasured friend.
