Notes to Barry

Advocating for one's own health might be difficult for some people. This is due to the fact that there are numerous things to oversee, such as health insurance concerns, the need for a second opinion on a medical issue, and maintaining accurate medical records.

I want to contribute in my own way as a self-care advocate by writing an article on the topic. I'll give you a good amount of pointers and information on how to be your own best health advocate. Would you be interested in publishing this piece as a guest post on your website?

I'd like to hear what you think. Looking forward to your response.

A big thank you!

Dear Barry,
I am not sure I have the words to express my endless appreciation and blessing that came with being able to call you a friend and mentor. You introduced me to higher level college volleyball and set me on a journey in the sport the last 30 years that has been unfathomable to younger me. You were always there for my endless silly questions, advice and counsel. Not only were we birthday partners, I loved you like family. I know Bonnie and the kids and grandkids will move on with the love and support foundation you provided. I know there is an enormous whole in our hearts that will never be filled with your laughter, smile and sage advice. But we are all better for having you as part of our lives. Thank you for being you which made all of us better versions of ourselves.

Bonnie & Family - I've been thinking of you all during this difficult time. While I only knew Barry for a few years, his energy and personality will live on forever and I'm grateful for the time. Wishing you all comfort and peace.

32 years ago I called American University and Barry answered the phone . I was looking to put an athlete I coached into the United States and you could tell he was wondering why me and my school . So he asked . I gave him an honest answer. He never thought someone would give . I said , " well , you're the second school in the blue book of college athletics . " well , he cracked up laughing and we dealt with each other and met when we had the chance . He was a great friend and I will cherish the memories.

Your legacy of sharing your expertise and knowledge in the volleyball community will always be remembered. I always looked forward in seeing you at the Capitol Hill Classic ever since you have created this magnificent gathering of volleyball athletes.
In behalf of our MoCo Volleyball club family, THANK YOU!

Thoughts and prayers to Barry’s family. He was an inspiration to all who met him. Had the pleasure of meeting Barry fist at the 2015 NCAA first round in Columbus, OH when I was coaching for Robert Morris, my first NCAA tournament as a coach. Barry recognized that I seemed a bit lost before the coaches meeting the night before the tournament and came up to me, congratulated me on making the tournament, and showed me where to go. We talked for several minutes and he told me that the feeling never got old and to really enjoy the experience. That always stuck with me as a young coach, and meant a lot coming from someone who had experienced so much success. Barry was a rare person and coach, and will be dearly missed by all those who had the pleasure of meeting him. God Bless and may Barry find rest and may the family find peace.

I never met Barry in-person, but American University was my work client and all of the AU staff knew Barry and would mention how wonderful of a human he was whenever I mentioned that I played volleyball. Our paths indirectly crossed in many ways, despite never directly... and yet, I felt like I knew the guy. He touched so many lives in the AU and volleyball community. I know he will be missed by so many.
