Barry was an accomplished man who achieved a bachelor's degree in finance and accounting from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and earned his CPA license. He began his business career as a young man in the family business, Central Moving Systems, in Bridgewater, NJ. He held executive positions in various transportation, construction, and consulting firms in New York City and New Jersey.
While Barry attended Watchung Hills High School, he excelled in sports. A yearly three-sport athlete, he was busy every season with golf or baseball, basketball, and especially football. He achieved All-State Group 4 First Team, All-Star Team, and All-County his senior year. He loved being on the field with his teammates and made many amazing plays.
Aside from his professional pursuits, Barry had many hobbies that he enjoyed throughout his life. He was an avid golfer who relished spending time on the green with his closest friends. One of his greatest achievements was scoring a hole-in-one at the local country club in Watchung. When his children were younger, he was passionate about supporting their soccer and swim teams and always encouraged them to do their best. In his free time, he volunteered for Somerset County YMCA and was an esteemed board member of the MS Society for 20 years.
