Garry Barrett, 69, of Connersville passed away on Wednesday, July 20, 2022. He was born in Breathitt County, Kentucky, on March 1, 1953, to the late Thomas Sr. and Kathleen Gross Barrett.
Garry worked most of his adult life at Don Barrett’s Carpet as a carpet installer. In the 1970’s Garry also taught many students at the vocational school in Connersville how to lay flooring.
Mr. Barrett treasured the life he lived. He loved everything about cars, from the thrill of driving them, to the detail of mechanic work, and the satisfaction of a paint job, which he gave them. He was most known to drive a Ford Mustang. Garry appreciated having a moment to relax while casting his fishing line. Most importantly, Garry enjoyed sharing jokes to make his family and friends laugh and smile.
Garry is survived by his children Krista Buchannon and Damon Walcott. He will be deeply missed by his siblings; brothers: Daniel (Linda) Barrett, Arthur (Janet) Barrett, David Barrett, Thomas Jr. (Jenny), and George (Paula Reese) Barrett; and sisters; Christine Schocke, Lois (Chuck) Miller, Norma (Mark) Mast, Linda (Ken) Sanders and sister-in-law Karen Barrett. His memories will be forever cherished by his several nieces and nephews.
Garry was preceded in death by his parents, brother, Henry Barrett, sister, Caroleen Barrett; and brother-in-law, John Schocke.
