Dear Rick and family,
I’m sorry to read about the death of Barry. He was always a kind man and a welcome voice, whether socially or professionally. I’m sure he left a large void in your family. May he Rest In Peace. Prayers for you all, Bruce Kleinschmidt

I am a neighbor of David Buttorff and friend of his family. I want to express my sympathy to David and the family for the loss of Barry. I was aware of how much the brothers meant to each other with the many phone conversations that would go on when David and I were visiting with each other. They had a closeness that meant so much to each of them, whether “picking “ on each other or just checking in to see how the other was doing. I’m sorry I never got to meet Barry but did say hello a couple of times on the phone. It is always hard to say goodbye to a loved one, but when death comes to one or the other, the memories become so important! God give him rest and the family peace. Mary Beavers
