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.

Service Details: The visitation will be 2-4 P.M., Sunday, March 26, 2017 and the funeral service will be at 10:30 A.M. Monday, March 27, in Meadors Funeral Home, Republic.


Barry's work ID picture.
Just thought I'd share some pictures of Barry making us laugh at work.  These were taken about a week and a half ago.  He was demonstrating to us the poses he did back when he was a "Montgomery Ward Catalog Model."  :)
Thank you Jim for sharing! My daddy was sure the jokester.

Thank You Jr.
I'm so very sorry to hear of Barry's passing.  He was truly a wonderful man.  I've worked with Barry at CNH since June 2016 and never a day passed that he didn't at some point he put a smile on my face.  He will truly be missed.  I'll especially miss talking about music with him...  My thoughts and prayers are with all of Barry's family and friends during this very difficult time.
