|In Memory of Barry Byron Bonner, Sr.|
This page is dedicated to the memory of our/my childhood friend, brother, and church member.
Bro. Barry is the victim of another, senseless killing. Shrouded in mystery, deception, high anxiety,
and much ambiguity; However, as we learn from Ecclesiastes 3:1, "To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:"
We give thanks to God for allowing us the privilege of knowing and sharing in the life of such a wonderful
person and humanitarian. Barry was a Son, Father, Grandfather, Uncle, Cousin, Friend, but most of all
a child of God's. His uncanny ability to transform a frown into a smile; dispel sadness with joy; and share whatever good he could with with those without, is indicative of his compassion for others. Barry, like so
many had his struggles and crosses to bear. He shall be sorely missed by all who knew him, this Pastor and lifelong friend, and his entire Shining Light Missionary Baptist Church Family.
Another rose has been plucked from God's earthly garden. We give Him eternal thanks
for allowing us to smell the sweet savor of his life, and works within his community, and church.
SUNRISE: 25 June 1960 ~ SUNSET: 13 November 2005
Our 45 years of friendship, fellowship, and brotherhood will not be another statistical number
lost in the archives of nothingness. Your life and memory will not, and is not in vain;
Take Your Rest My FRIEND! "You know I've got work to do."
Mr. Barry Byron Bonner, Sr.
Pastor Jerome A. Rogers, Sr.
