BARRY LYNN POE - Wednesday, March 22, 2017
Barry Lynn Poe, 57, entered into the presence of our Lord and Savior March 22, 2017. He was a loving family man who spent his life cherishing his wife and children and caring for his extended family. Nothing made him prouder than his four grandchildren who loved him so much. Barry loved racing, especially Nascar, and he was the inventor of “jiggly hugs.” Barry genuinely loved the Lord and genuinely loved people. He was a man of prayer, wisdom, and deep faith. Barry believed Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins, rose from the dead, and is coming back again and wanted to share the good news of salvation to anyone who would hear. He was compassionate, humble, hard-working, funny, and generous.
He was born in Fullerton, California and was married for 36 wonderful years to his wife, Pamela. They lived in Republic, MO and attended James River Church. He is survived by son Jason Poe and wife Jade, daughter Rachel Kelsey and husband Rob, four grandchildren, mother Shirley and stepfather Danny Kiser, sister Heidi Jenkins, niece Heather and cousins. He was preceded in death by father John E. Poe.
Services are at Meadors Funeral Home in Republic. Visitation is at 2-4 p.m. Sunday and a memorial service is at 10:30 a.m. Monday. Donations in Barry’s memory can be given to the James River Church Missions fund.
