Barry was our roommate in Aberdeen. He talked about his sister and Mother a lot...he was very proud of his family and loved them very much. Barry had a great sense of humor and a very caring heart. He was always there to listen if there was a problem. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

We met Barry in 2002 when he lived in Aberdeen. Although our time together wasn't long, we've never forgotten him, and we never will. He was always willing to lend a helping hand; he was a good friend. His sense of humor was infectious, and we had alot of fun together. We love him & will miss him terribly. Our love & prayers go out to Joyce and the rest of the family.

Barry is my first cousin and I'm deeply saddened to hear of his tragic passing. As kids, we lived many miles apart, but had some great times together when my parents John and Carol (Moss) Wansing visited South Dakota in the summertime. Although we lost contact for many years he was always a special cousin to me. My thoughts and prayers are with you Uncle Tusa, Aunt Joyce, and Pam and family. I love you all!!!
