A fellow Gator and fellow TEP fraternity brother of mine, (and Stan Blake, Kevin Emas, and Joel Brown). He was an excellent attorney and a family man.

My condolences to his family.

I will miss him. I not only tried cases with him in the REGJB, but he was my pledgemaster many lifetimes ago at the TEP house in Gainesville. He coined the identity I was forever known as in the annals of our frat, namely, "Roy the Goy". (Ask your Jewish friends). One of the really good guys. Condolences to his family and all who loved him. Roy Gonzalez

Very nice tributes for Barry on the blog;but why was the funeral absent R..E.G.regulars and others who were supposed friends.Yes,inhis honor there was an excellent turnout,but only one former prosecutor appeared and one judge from my observation.Was everyone out for a long lunch or playing golf at 12:00 on Friday?
