Robin Hines Barry – 3/5/1954 – 2/27/2022
Preceded in death by parents Elmo and Helen Barry, brothers Brent Barry, and Mark Barry; is survived by sisters Lisa Barry and Jan Dossey, niece Brooke Lilly, nephew Brandon Barry, and niece-godchild Anaea Dossey.
Rob worked for Williamson County Schools for over 28 years. To his student bus riders, he was known as Mister Bus Driver Rob. The children loved him and he them. For many years he drove the Brentwood High School Band to football games and band contests.
A side job for Rob between bus routes was window washing, mostly at local car dealerships. This tied in really well with his ‘hobby’ of collecting cars. He had a love of working on them and having them worked on, especially his classic ’67 Pontiac Catalina 2X2 “Big Blue”. As a member of the Pontiac-Oakland Club International of Middle Tennessee he spent many weekends at car shows and taking BB for a spin.
He enjoyed gardening and the outdoors and had some wonderful vacations to the beach with his best friend Burnis. They were just like brothers and considered each other as a member of the family. Rok, another best friend, was always free to ride around and indulge in the equally favorite hobby of eating out.
Rob was kind and gentle, and he was a servant to all. In these last years, he was caregiver for his parents and brother Mark. He read his Bible daily, as his friend said, even on vacations, and treasured his time each week in The Never Alone Class at church. He grew up in the church and remained a faithful member throughout his life. He was a follower of Jesus and loved God with all his heart.
