To say Duke was an outstanding football player would be an understatement. He truly loved everything about the game. Duke Bowers Barry Jr., 69, of Kerrville, TX passed from this life on Sunday, February 24, 2019. He crossed the goal line one final time as he stepped through the Gates of Heaven.
Duke was greeted at the Gates by his parents, Duke Sr. and Mary Lou Barry; a nephew, Bryan Martens, as well as numerous other family members and friends that had gone before.
Left to carry his memory are his sisters, Betty Martens; Margret Ann Pinkston and her husband Ronnie; and Duke's brother, Richard; as well as 9 nieces and nephews, and 14 great nieces and nephews.
