Kevin, I know I will have to say goodbye to you for the last time. “I will hold onto our memories the ones that are so dear. To try to keep you always close now you are not here. You were called home, it was your time. But it is so true you have left a legacy. There was no one like you. You are very special and I want to say I feel lost in many ways that you are not here. I will never forget you and I know that I have been blessed to have you for my Brother because you were the best…”

Sheila A .Barry, ,

What a joy it was to work with you. You kept me smiling. I will never forget you. God’s speed. RIP buddy! ???

Jo McCutchen, Savannah, Ga

Kevin and I worked together at CCPD from 1990-2000. He was funny and always kind to me, from the first time I met him. I loved what a smart aleck he could be, and his sarcasm was right up my alley. When he became President of the CCPA, I was secretary. Kevin conducted the board meetings like one big family dinner and each one was so much fun!! I miss many things about my time at CCPD, and many people. He was right at the top of the list. I pray for peace and comfort for his family. God Bless.

LeiAnn Sapp, Guyton, GA

Kevin always greeted me with a smile when I came in the courthouse for work - and always called me ‘Cathy Lee’. I don’t know where he came up with that nickname, but it always put a smile on my face. My sincere condolences to the family - it’s so hard to lose a loved one.

Cathy Hensley, Midway, GA

Words of comfort are difficult to find right now. Our hearts grieve with Kevin's passing. We knew he would leave us, but the loss is still most difficult. Heartfelt sympathy and love to Debra, Amanda and Kevin. Stay strong - we're here for you. Please call on us for anything.

Diane and Skip Sasser, Savannah, GA

So sorry to hear of Kevin’s passing. My dad worked with Kevin at the Courthouse as a Bluecoat together and always spoke highly of him. I know dad greeted Kevin with open arms in Heaven! My condolences to the Barry family.

Andria Sibilio Douglas , Savannah , Ga

Mary and all the Barry Family, please accept my condolences. Kevin was a very sweet, kind man, loved by all. May God comfort you and give you peace.

Mary Brown Woods, Tybee Island, GA

Our deepest sympathies and condolences to the Barry Family. May our Lord and Saviour carry him home to Victory. Kevin was a very fine Southern Irish gentleman. Always smiling, always friendly, always honourable, and true. He was a part of the very fabric of Tybee and the old island will not be the same.

Brown-Patillo Family, Tybee & Savannah, GA
