VOTE FOR DANNY BARRY


I SPENT THE FIRST 35 YEARS OF MY LIFE IN HOMEWOOD, ALABAMA.
 I WAS MARRIED AND WE HAD TWO CHILDREN, DYLAN AND ALLISON BOTH BORN IN THE MID- SEVENTIES.

I WAS ACTIVE IN THE COMMUNITY WITH YOUTH SOCCER. 
SHADES VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 1969
SHADES VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 1969


MY DAD WAS A BRICKLAYER SO SUMMERS, WEEKENDS, SPRING BREAK AND HOLIDAYS I WAS MOST OFTEN WORKING FOR HIM. THIS WAS WHERE I LEARNED HOW TO WORK HARD AND ALSO WHERE I LEARNED I DIDN'T WANT TO BE A BRICKLAYER!


WHILE STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL I BEGAN WORKING FOR THE YEILDING'S DEPARTMENT STORE IN RETAIL SALES WHERE WE HAD AIR CONDITIONING AND BEAUTIFUL GIRLS AND I HAD NO PROBLEM ADAPTING TO THE ENVIRONMENT.

I AM STILL VERY ACTIVE WITH MY CLASSMATES FROM SHADES VALLEY AND WE HAVE A GROUP OF US WHO WORK ON REUNIONS AND TRY TO KEEP EVERYONE IN CLOSE CONTACT.

AFTER HIGH SCHOOL, I CONTINUED TO WORK IN RETAIL SALES FOR A FEW YEARS UNTIL I BEGAN A CAREER IN ROUTE SALES FOR A LARGE COMPANY IN HOMEWOOD.
BLUE ANGELS
BLUE ANGELS
IN 1985 I MOVED TO PENSACOLA, FLORIDA TO ATTEND LIBERTY BIBLE COLLEGE AND WHILE THERE I STARTED A LANDSCAPE BUSINESS AND HAVE CONTINUED IN THIS LINE OF WORK FOR OVER 30 YEARS.

EVERYONE WHO LIVES IN PENSACOLA LOVES THE BLUE ANGELS AND I WAS NO EXCEPTION.

THEY NEVER LET ME FLY ONE OF THEIR PLANES, IMAGINE THAT, BUT I WATCHED VERY MANY OF THEIR PRACTICES AND I WAS ALWAYS FILLED WITH AWE FOR THEIR SKILLS AND COURAGE. THEY TRULY ARE THE BEST OF THE BEST!

I LOVED THE PEOPLE, THE BEACHES AND THE AREA, BUT IN 1990 I RETURNED HOME TO BE NEAR MY FAMILY AND THE FRIENDS OF MY YOUTH.

IN 1991 I MOVED TO PELHAM WHERE I FOUND NEW FRIENDS AND THE PLACE I CALL HOME.

I WAS VERY FORTUNATE TO HAVE RETURNED AT A TIME WHEN THE HOMEBUILDING BUSINESS WAS BOOMING. I WORKED FOR A NUMBER OF THE BUILDERS AND THEY ALWAYS KEPT ME VERY BUSY.

THE BEST PART OF MY RETURN WAS THE ABILITY TO SPEND MORE TIME WITH MY SON DYLAN AND MY DAUGHTER ALLISON. WE ENJOYED HIKING TOGETHER AND WE SPENT AS MUCH TIME ON THE TRAILS AS WE COULD. DYLAN AND I WORKED OUT TOGETHER SEVERAL NIGHTS A WEEK AND ON SOME OCCASIONS WE WOULD BASS FISH TOGETHER.

DYLAN, MELISSA, ZEKE BARRY AND BIGGIE.

ON JULY1, 2004, MY SON DYLAN AND HIS WIFE MELISSA AND THEIR FAMILY DOG WERE KILLED IN COLLISION WHEN A MAN FELL ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL AND HIT THEM HEAD ON. MY GRANDSON ZEKE WAS 3 YEARS OLD AND HE WAS SERIOUSLY INJURED BUT HE HAS MADE A FULL RECOVERY AND AS YOU MAY IMAGINE THERE HAVE BEEN DIFFICULT TIMES FOR ZEKE AND ALL OF US.

THIS PICTURE WAS MADE A FEW WEEKS BEFORE THE ACCIDENT. 




THE LONGER I LIVED IN PELHAM THE MORE FRIENDS I MADE AND THE MORE I BEGAN TO FEEL A PART OF THE COMMUNITY. IN 2012 I MET GARY WATERS AND AS THE RESULT OF OUR FRIENDSHIP I BECAME INTERESTED IN THE GOVERNING BODY WHICH MAKES OUR CITY FUNCTION.

I HAD BEEN VERY INVOLVED WITH THE HOMEWOOD PARK BOARD WHILE LIVING IN HOMEWOOD AND BECAUSE OF MY EXPERIENCE WITH YOUTH SOCCER I WAS APPOINTED TO THE PELHAM PARK ADVISORY BOARD AND I STILL SERVE ON THE BOARD.
