He served three years in the U.S. Army at Ft. Hood, Texas. While in the Army, he worked as an Operating Room Surgical Technician alongside an Ear, Nose and Throat surgeon. This experience would greatly inspire his future career trajectory.

In 1994, he and his family returned home to Texas to join the Brenham Clinic. He had his own private practice in Brenham until retiring in 2012. He was passionate about his chosen profession and loved helping the people of Brenham and the surrounding areas during the years he practiced.
On February 9, 1985, Barry married Lisa Ann Peterson. A registered nurse, she supported him in his practice while they raised their children. They enjoyed thirty-seven years of marriage filled with wonderful times with their large family.

He loved fishing and hunting with his three sons and listening to all types of music, especially opera and bluegrass.
