Master Detention Deputy Barry,

Thank you for your sacrifice for our nation. May you be with the Lord and may he be with your family.

On behalf of the Ohio Attorney Generals Bureau of Criminal Identification & Investigation, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Master Detention Deputy Richard Barry and the extended law enforcement family of the Lake County Sheriff's Office, Florida.

End of Watch Thursday, July 16, 2020.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

My brother Rick served God, his family, his country, and Lake County with dignity and pride, and the best sense of humor. He leaves a legacy of love to Bria and Brennan, the true loves of his life. He leaves his mom, sisters, brother, and lots of cousins and aunts and uncles in New England with so many fun memories of times spent together in his favorite Sunshine State of Florida, and holiday visits up north. Our hearts are broken, and he will be missed each and every day.
Rest in Peace Rick, and may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
