He was a loving grandfather to Atreya, Cambria, and Benji Buss, and Laekyn Clevenger. Barry also leaves two brothers, Stephen (Pattie) Clevenger, Ethridge, TN and Clark Clevenger, Dacula, GA.
Barry was employed by Maury Regional Hospital in Columbia, TN, just a short drive from home where he found an immeasurable zest for life, riding his tractor, digging ponds, raising chickens and ducks, serenading Lori as he strummed his red guitar, cooking “surprise “ meals, baking his delicious cinnamon rolls—creating the memories we have been remembering with smiles and tears. He loved everyone and in turn was loved by all.
His family feels blessed to have had this man as a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend. Our lives have been enriched by his presence; one filled with laughter and heartache—and always, love.
