Hi I'm Barry

I am a professor, I love to hunt, fish and garden and spend time with my wife and 7 children... and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to build! I was self employed as a contractor and real estate developer for 20+ years and I loved it. I also love to learn... about anything and everything. At 43, my family and I (wife and 7 children) moved to Utah to further my education. I finished my doctorate at age 50 and now I teach others to build. I have hunted from Alaska to Zimbabwe, I love to fish, work in the yard and garden. I guess I just love to be outdoors...

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a lifelong Mormon and follower of Jesus Christ. I love the impact the gospel has had in my life and the support system the LDS Church provides for my family. I especially loved serving as a missionary in Brazil (Recife). My mission changed my life and I hope and pray my children will have the same opportunity. My oldest son served a 2-year mission in Argentina and my second son is currently serving in Mexico. I hope to serve missions later in life with my sweet wife. She'd make the best missionary ever!

How I live my faith

I enjoy teaching and sharing the gospel. I have worked with the youth for more than 25 years. I also love to serve others, especially older neighbors in home repairs and gardening issues.
