Barry enjoyed life to the fullest. He was an excellent storyteller - most of the stories were based on his own adventures with some embellishments. His favorite hobbies include duck hunting and fishing, and then cooking his catch for family and friends. He made many special friends while guide fishing on his beautiful Lake Martin. He was always happy when on the lake.
Barry dearly loved his family and always spoke in glowing terms about his children and grandchildren. Also, special to him was First Baptist Church and his Sunday School class. Barry was a friend to many and will definitely be missed.
He is survived by his wife, Susan Holdridge of Alexander City; daughter, Jill Holdridge Duncan (Doug) of Carrollton, GA; son, Barry T. Holdridge, Jr. of Alexander City; and grandchildren, Katy Duncan and Hannah Holdridge.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
The family wants to thank Alacare for taking such good care of us.
