George, or Barry as he was known by many, was born on January 26, 1961 in EI Paso, Texas. As part of a military family, he lived in the Philippines, Georgia, Okinawa, and Virginia. Consequently, he developed keen interests in geography, history and the military. As a youth, he enjoyed playing sports and spending time at his grandparents in North Carolina.
Barry attended Kecoughtan High School where he lettered in football, wrestling, and track. He graduated from Old Dominion University with a degree in Business. While working, he subsequently received a Master Degree in Public Administration from Golden Gate University. Barry served for four years as a Captain in the United States Army with posts in EI Paso, Texas and Germany. Barry settled in Williamsburg, where he spent the last several years working as a certified occupational therapist, an occupation he enjoyed.
Barry's interests included dogs, military history, music, sports and especially building models. He will be remembered for his love of dogs, sense of humor, and love to talk with others on a variety of issues.
