Barry Wayne Rickard, age 35 of Griffin, passed away on Saturday, November 12, 2022.
Barry was born in Sedalia, Missouri on December 21, 1986. Barry graduated from Union Grove High School in McDonough (Class of 2005). He was a longtime member of Zion Baptist Church in Covington. Barry had worked at Marietta- Martin Material until his health declined.
Survivors include his wife, Christina S. Rickard; parents, Wayne and Jo Rickard; brother, Brian Rickard and his wife, Allie and their sons, Tristan Engleman and Asher Rickard; grandmother, Barbara Givens; several aunts, uncles and cousins.
Barry loved to make people laugh. He hated the cold and never minded being dirty unless he was wearing a white shirt. He loved picking on his mom during his growing up years and then transferred it all to his wife Christina after they married. He loved fishing and anything to do with UGA football. His proudest days were when his brother was in the Redcoat band and got to go to Athens for the Dawg games. Barry was a joy and his entire family will forever miss his presence in our lives.
Visitation will be Sunday, November 20, 2022 from 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm at Conner-Westbury Funeral Home followed by a funeral service in the chapel. Reverend Lane Collins and Reverend Stephen Dervan will officiate.
