Obituary for Barry Lee Jennings

Barry Lee Jennings was born January 14, 1963 to Helen Kincade and Jack Jennings at KU Hospital and passed away on July 10, 2020 surrounded by loved ones at the Kansas City Hospice House after a long and hard-fought battle with liver cancer.
Barry was a self-taught renaissance man. There was nothing that man could not fix. He fixed cars, things around the house and even an occasional broken heart. He had a love of cars and learned to drive starting at a very young age. He loved to fish, tinker, collect cars, loved his dogs Zeus, Pugs Lee, and Daisy (feed them that Gravy Train!), loved his grand pups and LOVED playing with his grandkids. He even won Father of the Year for 35 consecutive years!
Barry was extremely generous and would give his last dollar out to a hand in need. His friends and family knew they could count on him in a pinch. One phone call to Barry and he would be on his way to tow your car, be there if you ran out of gas, help fix a clogged sink, or give out one of his famous bear hugs. Barry had a sense of humor, loved to joke around, and tried to make others comfortable with his jokes. He was a stubborn man, but that taught his kids to not back down and not take no for an answer.
Barry is preceded in death by his mother Helen Kincaid and his baby Barry Lee Jennings (Little Barry). He is survived by his father, Jack and stepmother Betty Jennings; sisters, Diana Tilton and Sheila Burton; brother, Jackie Sands and his beloved children, Diana (Brian) Schwien, Michelle (Robert) Sirett, and Matthew Jennings; and even more beloved grandchildren, Gavin Schwien, Roman and Seth Sirett, Karter, Claire, and Kendall Jennings. He also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, and cousins that he always put under his wing and helped when he could.
The family will receive family and friends from 1:00 - 2:00 pm, Wednesday, July 29, 2020 with a Memorial Service to begin at 1:00 pm located at Highland Park Funeral Home, 4101 State Ave, Kansas City, KS 66102. A celebration of life reception will follow at Armourdale Baptist Church beginning at 3:30 pm.
