My deepest condolences to the entire Volk family! Barry was a very down to earth man. I appreciate how friendly he was & when you asked for advice on something, he was a straight shooter. He truly loved his family and friends. Ride free Barry!!!

We were so sorry to hear about the passing of your son Barry. There are no words to say to a mother or father regarding the loss of their child. We believe it must be the worst heartbreak that there is. We hope you can find peace and some comfort in the loving words of friends and family who surround you. We are so incredibly sorry for your loss.
