I suspected that... or worse. Barry's absence has been noticed and I hope he is able to recover and return. He is a prolific Singer and Writer and has battled cancer for quite some time... and his wife was also quite ill.

Barry, we miss you and wish you the best.

Sorry to hear that. Barry is a good man and he has battled many obstacles, especially with his health over the past few years. Prayers and best wishes.

I'm sorry to hear this. Do you have a link to his facebook page? We lost two important JPFers in the past few days already, Jill Sansores Connolly who was a big part of our initial online efforts to recruit members (back when we used to do that) and also our early Roadtrip tours around the USA. And the same day I learned of the passing our Female Artist of the Year & Album of the Year winner Erika Luckett, one of the singular amazing talents I have ever come across in over 30 years of touring the world and meeting (and in most cases seeing perform) over 30K artists face to face. I hope Barry is comfortable and surrounded by people he loves and who love him. Thanks for letting us know Travis.

Bloody cancer.


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Sorry to hear this about Barry. Many of us here are getting to the age when sickness will spring upon us. I have a dear friend waiting to go in the hospital now for a very serious operation, aneurysm behind his heart.

Damn, I wanted to say a lot about this, but I'll just go with [naughty word removed] cancer, the human condition and aging.

This kind of news makes me short with the young .....and I really shouldn't be.

Hi Mac:

I understand your angst... life really isn't fair but it's all we've got... and I'm going to try and make each day with all it's aches and pains... something to remember. Music really is an opiate... and... it's legal. Hoping Barry is comfortable or in a better place. His heart is bigger than Texas and I feel so badly for his situation. Thanks for "chiming-in"... I hope your music activities are headed up the charts for you.

Best, ----Dave

It looks like Barry has passed away. I went to his facebook page and saw the messages: https://www.facebook.com/Barrydavidbutler

God speed!

Hi Kevin:

I don't normally participate in FB but I clicked on the link you posted, was taken to his page but saw nothing to inform us of his passing. (Perhaps because I did not "log in"?)

I've known, as have others here, about his serious illness... and that of his wife. Cancer, no matter which type, can be such a drain, physically, emotionally and financially. I hope he is still with us... but fear the worst. If he has passed, I'm wishing his family all the best and my deepest sympathy. He was a unique individual and a real talent.

Barry was hurting for a long time with this. He wanted to leave a musical legacy behind. I don't think he had the means or opportunity to leave a great product behind.

And he spoke about God quite often, which I suppose we all will when backed up to the wall.

It's so sad. My dad died literally over night when he went, and didn't suffer. You can't beat that for the person themself. For everyone else its harder.

My Mom struggled way more and she knew she was going to die before anyone else, including the doctors did. I'll never forget how she knew. We thought she was overreacting, but somehow they know, and Ill also never forget the tear that came down her cheek with her last breath. They say that's some sort of dying phenomenon that scientists don't really understand.

If i had the capabilities to do a great recording of one of Barry's songs id do it for him, and let it sit online, forever more, like he wanted.

It's also a shame we wait till people die before we think about them seriously.

Just been on Barry's FB page and by the messages it appears Barry has passed away but this is unconfirmed.
RIP.

So sorry to hear this news. He will be missed dearly around here, Barry always wore his feelings on his sleeve for sure--a good thing. My condolences to his family/friends.

I am a latecomer to this group and didn't know Barry well, but he always struck me as a chap with a huge heart. He had a lot to say and a unique way of saying it. Very sorry to hear this news.

What horrible news. My condolences to who all that knew and loved him--what a musical heart. His passion was song and music--may heaven give him both for eternity. God bless you, Barry.

This little online community has been around so long that we've all aged and like any family we are losing members. It's happening in my life with my blood relatives as well as my additional family by choice within JPF and our broad membership online and offline. We lost 3 people in a single day a couple weeks ago and now another here. Each time I keep reminding myself how lucky we are to have each other but to be honest as hard as I try I can't reach out to everyone, one on one, as I wish I could. But know that anyone reading this has enriched not only my life but all the others. Whether your an easy going helper or even a thorn in our sides at times, the overall effect of all of us molds our lives in small but important ways. It is just something to consider that might have a positive impact on you to stop and smell the proverbial roses as we go.

Rest in peace Barry.

Brian

So sorry to hear of this. Rest in peace Barry. The older we get, the more funerals I seem to be going to. My classmates are dropping like flies.

For those of you who can. it might not be a bad idea to go on to facebook and post your thoughts on Barry so his family can read them. I'm sure they are checking out his page. Might not get over here.

So sorry to hear this. Barry was a respectable, good guy. He told me once the music kept him going and helped him battle the cancer.

You put up a helluva fight. Rest in peace, Barry.

Mike

Christ almighty, I am just reaching the point of not knowing what to say anymore. Barry was prolific and is missed already.

Damn.

Rest in peace, Barry. You were an inspiration. Leading with your heart and never giving up. In music and in life.

It's one thing dying suddenly, but knowing your time is limited but not knowing exactly when, must be tormenting.

I too hope he is resting in peace.
