TriviaIs father of Shannon (b. 1965), Bernard (b. 1970), Jim (b. 1979) and Chris (b. 1982). Served in the USMC. Graduated from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. Is the official "Station Voice" of KPLX-FM 99.5 The Wolf, Dallas, Texas. Like his father, he attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. He appeared in a number of college plays from 1960 through 1964, including "The Merry Wives of Windsor" (as Falstaff), "The Imaginary Invalid" (title role), "A View from the Bridge" (as Tony), and Ondine (as Auguste). At 21, Barry left his Texas university to join the Marine Corps and spent about two years at Camp Pendleton in California, training South Vietnamese officers. He remained in the Marine Corps Reserve, rejoining the 40th Rifle Company in Lubbock, Texas, as an assistant Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) man. He was discharged in August 1963. He lost most of his hair in the 1990s due to a condition called alopecia areata; since then, he often appears on screen either with his head shaved or wearing a hat. Was considered for the role of C.D. Parker on "Walker, Texas Ranger" (1993).
