Barry’s dad was a traveling sales rep for Eckrich Meat and because of that he did a lot of traveling. This caused Barry to go to many schools and move around a lot.

After high school, he graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Business. He was employed for a period of time with General Motors, and then later worked for over 20 years at Borgess Hospital.  He married the love of his life, Angel Kellogg, on June 12, 1982. For Barry’s hobbies he enjoyed watching sports, playing golf, going hunting and fishing. His family will remember him as quiet, gentle, witty and having a great sense of humor.
