    Chris and I would like to send our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Cary’s. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you through this difficult time. We went to school with Cary and have so many great memories of him…all his Minnesota Viking items, his infectious laugh, his love of the river and love of trucking, and so many more. It was always great to just run into him out of the blue and catchup and laugh with him. What a great guy! He will be so sorely missed.

    “Old Truckers Never Die…” Cary was, like his Dad, an “old school trucker”. My family is saddened by his loss. In 1996 Cary and I were both working for RELCO running aluminum ingots and chips back and forth between Massena and Cleveland. His handle was “C.B.” on the CB and we could chat for a bit while we were within shouting range. He was always helpful with advice to this “newbie driver”. Standing in line at a truckstop in Ruther Glen, Virginia this past winter I was reading the back of another driver’s jacket, wondering “Where the heck is the McRRISTOWN FIRE DEPT?” Then I heard his unique laugh as he chatted with the cashier. I knew then I was behind my 2nd cousin, “ol’ C.B.” We had a chance to catch up…part of the first letter “O” in Morristown had worn away so it looked like a “C”! I will think of him and the Barleys often as I travel up and down I-81 in the big rig. “Catch you on the flip-flop C.B….Vaya Con Dios, my friend!” God bless and comfort all his family and friends.
