After a courageous battle with Covid-19, Barry Lee Reddick died on November 23, 2020. He was born on April 27, 1944 in Quincy, CA to Elmo and Grace Reddick. He graduated from Del City High School in 1962 and Central State College in 1971. He married Sandra (Martz) Reddick on October 7, 1966 and they welcomed Eric Reddick in 1971, Darien Reddick in 1973 and Carrie Reddick in 1976. He had a knack for gab, never met a stranger and loved a good joke, which made him a great salesman. Early on he enjoyed his years in city government and later over a 25-year span with Boecking, Darr & Albert Equipment. He truly thought Caterpillar anything was the Best! He retired in 2014 from Testers Inc. Preceded in death by his parents, brother Gene Reddick and sister Patty Martin. He is survived by his wife Sandy; Eric (Julie) & sons Paul, Kaleb and Dyllan; Darien (Amber) and Carrie & sons Barry Gage and Braden, Sister-in-Law Claire Reddick; Brother-in-Law & Sister in-Law Larry & Charissa Siebert and many nieces, nephews and extended family. He was so proud of his children, adored his five grandsons and cherished his time trout fishing on the White River. We will miss him beyond words.
Services will be a private family affair.
Charissa and Larry Siebert says
Barry was the best brother-in-law! I couldn’t have picked a better one if I had gone out and shopped for one. We were so blessed to have him as family. He and Larry enjoyed each other’s company, especially when they hunted or fished together He was always up for pilling a prank on someone and bringing laughter to all. He was loved and will be missed greatly.
Joe Nelson says
Sandy, I am truly sad to learn of Barry’s passing. He worked with me many years ago at Boecking and I have no doubt about his regards for “Caterpillar anything.” He was an absolute professional in my book and earned my utmost respect. We lost touch when my wife and I moved out of state and I regret not reaching out to him upon our return to Oklahoma. If only everyone I’ve ever worked with had Barry’s professionalism and personable attributes! He made my life better for knowing him and I am proud to have had him as a friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Carrie Reddick says
Dad, I miss you every day. The pain comes in waves. How does one go on when a parent passes? We were blessed to have you as our father. Some days it feels like you have been gone an eternity. Replaying the last moments I got to spend with you and they are foggy at times. Fighting to remember your voice right now. The last two months of not being able to see you is what I am having a hard time with. Did you know how much we loved you, how much we counted on you? You are with our heavenly father and I know we will see you again. Thank you for being an awesome dad and granddad! Fly high with the angels, dad. You deserve this peace from all your pain now. This is not goodbye, just until we meet again.
