Barry is a giver. His goal is to make every person he came in contact with smile. Once you smile, he makes you laugh, and once you start laughing, he kept going until you almost couldn't breathe. Barry loves making food. He is an amazing Chef. He will cook anything out of nothing, and make it exquisite. Presentation is everything to him when it came to his cooking. His food is so beautiful, sometimes all you could do was stare at it. He took pride and joy in everything. Barry is a family man. He loves his family more than anything. Barry is a comical person. Always making jokes. He can turn your frown upside down whenever and wherever it is needed. He loves solving problems. Barry is a kind, gentle soul, who gave and gave only to see a smile. His prize is your smile. Barry has worked for S'Barro's Italian Eatery for almost 20 years, and loves making pizza, talking to his customers, and having fun while working. He made every work day a fun day. On his days off, he focused all his time and energy on his family. Barry collected video game systems, games, movies, and coins/antique money, and of course G.I. Joe. If he wasn't playing a video game, he was watching a movie or a cartoon with his family, or showing/sharing his collection with his children; as his father did with him. Barry loves Star Wars, a huge fan and never missed an episode or movie. His children watched it with him. His goal is to pass it to his children. Barry has many friends who loves him dearly. Barry married his soul-mate, Kacie, whom he has known since childhood.
