Barry Andrew Woodhouse, 54, passed away suddenly early Saturday, March 7.
He was a native of Cary, N.C., and had a heart for his family and for the special needs community.
Barry lived his life with tremendous passion, humor and kindness.
Barry graduated from Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tenn., where he found the love of his life, Paula Beverly. Together they began a special needs ministry at Brooks Avenue Church of Christ in Raleigh, N.C., to serve their daughter, Melissa. The ministry grew and has touched many lives across the country.
