Barrett was completely dedicated and driven in his work as a retail manager. He loved every moment, most recently with Lowes in Plano as an Asst.Store Manager, where he became close to so many. His start with Lowes 7 years ago was the beginning of a life changing experience with a company philosophy. He never looked back. His retail beginnings were at 16, when he started with Tom Thumb as a bag boy and quickly worked his way up, leaving the company as an Asst.Store Director in 2006.
Barrett’s Self Professed greatest self growth was his study of Martial Arts beginning in 1996. He attained a 6th degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, Black Belts in Kenpo and Belts in Weapons under the instruction and loving guidance of his Sensei and Friend Diane Reeve, founder of Vision Martial Arts. He has many great, lifelong Friends there who will, along with all who loved him, carry on his Legacy of Never Giving Up, no matter what Life presents you with.
There will be a casual Celebration of Life for Barrett on Sunday, November 24, 2013 at 2:00 pm @ Vision Martial Arts 3019 W. 15th Street, Plano, TX, 75075.
