Barry is survived by his wife Susan, son Barry Lee II, daughter Brittany Lauren, brothers Rod, Kevin, Shawn and, sister Mary along with several nieces and nephews. Barry was born in Mercy Hospital, Miami, FL which made him a “true Florida boy”. He attended Hialeah High School and graduated in 1974. He was then recruited via a football scholarship to Davidson College in North Carolina. After two semesters in North Carolina he decided to come back to Florida where he was accepted to University of Florida, Gainesville where he graduated from the Fisher School of Accounting with a BS in 1979. In August of 1985 he met who would become his current wife, Susan Uprichard of Carmel, New York. They were married January 3, 1987. During the first year of marriage the couple purchased a new home in Davie, had their first child – Barry II and Barry embarked on a new career with a “little known at the time” university which consisted of three white buildings hidden amongst pine trees off of the “two-lane” University Drive, now known as Nova Southeastern University. It was at NSU that Barry forged a 33 year career (and had a second child - Brittany to add to the mix) and was part of its growth through 2020 at the time of his passing. Barry was a caring and compassionate individual whom will be remembered with love and great affection. May God bless you and you keep you close. We love you!
