I have known Barry for over 40 years, since his "street hero" days. He and I worked together at the old "Bill's Rod and Custom" shop. He always kept us laughing and was a true character. Most of the stories I have can't be printed here. There is one that I can tell, However. He came to my wedding, almost 34 years ago, dressed in a sky-blue leisure suit and his ever present afro. In the reception line, Barry shook hands with my bride, and kissed me! This photo was taken about the time he was building his black flamed '40. Barry is in front , on the ground, taking life easy. It is hard for me to believe he is gone. I will pray for him and mourn his passing.
