Born June 25, 1958, in Ventura CA, Barry left us too soon on June 8, 2007. Barry grew up in Sacramento and attended Orange Grove Elementary, Churchill Middle and La Sierra High schools. He also attended American River College and later earned a B.S. from Humboldt State University and a M.S. from Virginia Tech in Wildlife Biology.

Barry was first and foremost a doting husband and father that was very engaged in his childrens lives, participating in various youth sports and cub scouts. He shared his love of wildlife with his wife and children and enjoyed exploring the great outdoors together.
