Barry, joy of his mother's life and husband, best friend and partner in life to his wife, Melissa. Barry played baseball, football at Suwannee High School where he successfully kicked perhaps the only 52 yard field goal to win a playoff game in the school's history. He attended VSC (VSU) where he played both football and baseball and earned Most Valuable Player Award on the baseball team at the end of his senior year. He received a degree in business.
Barry married Melissa Reaves in 1998, the love of his life. God blessed them with two beautiful girls, Sydney and Claire. With two athletic parents, the girls were bound to excel at sports, which they have. As partners in life, Barry and Melissa grew very close to their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Together they spent two weeks in Africa in a mission trip. This was followed by other mission trips (Mexico Family). Barry and Melissa taught 8th Grade boys' Sunday school at Olive Baptist Church for nearly five years.
Visitation will be Friday, August 4, 2017 at Olive Baptist Church from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Graveside Service will be held at Friendship Baptist Church Cemetery, Live Oak, FL at 3:00 p.m., Saturday, August 5, 2017 with Dr. Traylor officiating.
