Barry L. Sexton, Sr., 62, of Butler, Pennsylvania, passed away on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 surrounded by his loved ones at UPMC Shadyside in Pittsburgh, PA. He was born February 26, 1957 in Butler, Pennsylvania to the late Sarah (Reed) Sexton. Barry was a proud veteran of the United States Army, and earned the National Defense Service Medal while enlisted. A graduate of Rosedale Tech with a certificate in automotive and diesel mechanics, Barry dedicated over 30 years as a shift supervisor working for Wise Business Forms. Barry was Presbyterian by faith.

A devoted Pirates fan, Barry enjoyed his annual father-son trip to baseball stadiums across the country. He was also an avid car enthusiast, and especially loved his Ford Mustang “Eleanor”. Barry was hard-working and exceedingly giving in every aspect of his life. His rental properties, which he built from the ground up, were a source of great pride; Barry provided only the very best for his tenants.

He is survived by his son Barry Sexton Jr., and daughter-in-law Tammie Sexton of Pittsburgh, PA; one brother, Dave Sexton (Diane) of Port Charlotte, FL; two sisters, Tana Lindsey of Prospect, PA, and Jan Tempalski of Slippery Rock, PA; and several nieces and nephews.
