I am deeply saddened by this news. Woo'Ah and I go back a very long way, and although recently our paths had took different directions, i still and always will consider him a very good friend. God Bless You All.

I can remember the first time I was invited to a Wetzler fish fry gathering at the "clubhouse" along with shooting clay birds and,an amazing family that welcomed me like a long lost cousin! The fish was great,and the laughs were a plenty with everyone there. Barry took me on the 4-wheeler for a tour and scared me half to death all the while laughing and saying"hang on" He was a good friend and I will cherish all the laughs we shared and his fish frying parties!! My deepest sympathy to you all on your loss of your son,brother,uncle . I can hear his laugh at the craziest stunts he did,and his infectious smile he had. Be at peace now Barry Pam Liefer (Pammy) as Barry called me

I used to ride dirt bikes with Barry and he really enjoyed the motorcycles back in the day....

I am so sorry to hear about Barry's death.

We had so many great years growing up together. He certainly was my best friend. We had a lot of fun and exciting times that seem like they occurred just recently. I can't begin to count the number of great memories I have of our time together.

Your family is in our prayers
