Barry grew up in Johnson City, Texas living an idyllic childhood in a small central Texas town. From a young age, he was a natural businessman and had a true entrepreneurial spirit.

His medical career began in Kerrville Texas and he later moved to Hurst, Texas and formed Guthrie, Golden and Fawcett Clinic which later became Mid Cities Family Practice at Harris Methodist HEB. He was a Family Physician in the truest sense taking care of patients with dedication from cradle to grave. He was a lifelong teacher with great practical advice. Hobbies included golf which he enjoyed tremendously. He had many memorable golf trips with great friends and a “hole in one” while playing with his sons on Father’s Day.

He is survived by his sons Mike (Jill) and David (Stephany), grandchildren Cameron, Luke, Zach, Maeve, Aidan and Decklan.
