Barrows, Richard “Skip” Louis

September 3, 1954 - October 19, 2021

Richard “Skip” Barrows passed away on October 19, 2021 at the age of 67, in Richardson, Texas. 

 He is survived by his wife, Teresa, mother Mary Barrows, sister and brother-in-law Kathy & Gene Butterfield,  brother-in-law Tom Devine, children, Courtney Barrows, Amanda and Adam Regalado.  He is preceded in death by his father, Richard Barrows, and sister, Terri Devine.  In addition to this, he is survived by nieces, nephews, extended family, and an abundance of friends. We will all miss him more than words can say.

When Skip was young, he enjoyed playing softball. Later in life, golf became his go to sport. He had a passion for muscle cars and listening to an engine growl. He loved rooting for the GreenBay Packers and the Wisconsin Badgers, but only from a far.  He was convinced if he watched, they would lose.  

In January 2004, Skip met the love of his life, Teresa, on an arranged blind date and it was love at first sight. They were married in January 2005. The two of them went on many adventures traveling to the UK and Italy and cruising the Caribbean every few years.

Skip was always smiling and cracking jokes. His hobbies included putting together models of military boats and aircraft, cooking for the family, and researching for his next dream car. He spent a lot of time in the backyard with AC/DC blaring through the speakers. Skip was always willing to help anyone that needed it.

So sorry to here about Skip. He was the best. He always made you laugh. Growing up with him in Lake Park Wis. was one of the best times of my life I will never forget.

He was such a good person to be around. He will be missed.RIP Skip

Sending condolences from WI for our cousin Skipper and his family. Haven’t seen him since I was probably a teen but his mom was still a part of my moms life before losing my mom. Our Kenosha family has always stayed in touch with his Racine relatives and my aunt still does.
I remember as a kid Skippers smile and laughter. Same with his dad also. I’m saddened to hear of his passing and send deepest condolences from his family members in Kenosha WI. 💔🌹
