William “Barry” Rancier was born in East Texas in 1944. Although he had a rough childhood, he became a well-respected family member, friend and businessman.

Barry was in the computer field for over 30 years. He worked for Tandem Computers which later became Compaq Computers. He enjoyed travelling around the United States with his work. He met several acquaintances along his journey.
Barry loved the outdoors, especially sailing on Eagle Mt. Lake. He enjoyed the sport so much, that he was one of the founding members and Commodore of Eagle Mt. Yacht Club, which he formed in 1981.
Barry was a friendly and jovial man. He always had a smile and always greeted you with a “How ya doing?” and a response “Fair to Midland”
Barry was a handy man and his greatest pride was his home near Azle, Texas. He designed and built his home, enjoying many long days and nights completing his perfect spot on top the hill with a beautiful view of the Fort Worth skyline.
He loved building model cars and trucks and he “tinkered” on many old classic trucks and the British MG’s.
He enjoyed visiting his sister and brother-in-law, Sally and Al Caira and their children and grandson, in Sudbury, Massachusetts.
Barry was preceded in death by his sister, Sally and his brother-in-law, Al.
He is survived by his nieces, Maria Caira and Wendy Caira, nephew Anthony Caira, grand-nephews Leonard , Dean and Anthony Jr, many cousins and a tremendous supply of friends.
