It is with great sadness that the family of Barry V. Sells announces his sudden passing on Saturday, June 19, 2021 at the age of 64.
Barry was born on March 2, 1957. After graduating high school and some life experiences, Barry enlisted in the U.S. Army, devoting nearly 20 years of his life to the service. He proudly fought in Operation Desert Storm in the 1st Calvary Division. One of his proudest accomplishments was to be named a member of the Sergeant Audie Murphy Club, celebrating dedicated leadership and exemplary noncommissioned officer professionalism. He carried his love of our country and troops for all of his days.
It was after his service he married Julie (McClain) Sells. They shared poetry, football Sundays (he eventually came to love the Browns), family barbeques, grandchildren, and more. Barry believed it is the ordinary things that make life extraordinary. He will always be loved.
