A few years back when Alma and I were tap dancing together with the "Top Hat Tappers" of Twin Falls, occasionally, Warren would join us at a local restaurant for lunch. He usually would sit, accompanied by another gentleman, next to our table and I always enjoyed his presence and cordial conversation. The obituary is precious and I'm sure Warren and Alma had a wonderful and compatible life together. My heart goes out to Alma, Helen and all of Warren's family. Pat Banning (Hagerman,ID)

I'll never forget when you and Warren flew my mother to Las Vegas for her very first plane ride. She loved it. Alma I am so sorry for your loss and also sorry that I can't be there Tuesday to help celebrate Warrens wonderful life. I have to go to Salt Lake for surgery but you will be in my prayers.

To Alma and Family: It was our pleasure to build a home for you and Warren just a few years ago. Warren was an honest, thoughtful man with great integrity. We enjoyed getting to know him and his many stories. Our hearts go out to you at this difficult time.

What an amazing person Warren was, I cherished knowing him and working with him and Alma on 55 Alive, and so many other activities. He was so generous to me personally when I arrived in Jerome and he had been established in business for years before I came! I will truly miss seeing Warren as I always did when I visited the Twin Falls Rotary Club! God's speed to his family!

I have very fond memories of trips our families took together as well as picnics, cook outs, etc. Our most sincere condolences go out to the entire family, especially Cindy who Ken and I grew up with and were in school with. May all your wonderful memories help comfort you and warm your hearts in this most difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Most Sincerely,

While in high school and a member of the Twin Falls cadet squadron of the Civil Air Patrol, I had an opportunity to fly with Mr. Barry on several occassions (mostly search and rescue exercises). Mr. Barry's love of flying and his interest in helping young people develop their interest in flying as well to see them succeed in life was most eveident. I enjoyed each opportunity I had to fly with Mr. Barry. His love of life and sense of humor was very contagious to all those around him. It was an honor to have known him. Please know that mine and my family's prayers are with your family, at this time.
