Des Moines, IA

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Barry McMahon, who left us too soon on February 17, 2024. Born on March 8, 1964, Barry lived a rich and fulfilling life, leaving an indelible mark on everyone he met. Barry was a rare gem, his personality radiating kindness, caring, and selflessness. Those who knew him were drawn to his incredible sense of humor, and his loyalty and dedication were second to none. His life lessons were simple yet profound: life isn't always fair, but one must always strive to be humble and kind. Father to Taylor and Connor, Barry considered his children his greatest accomplishment. His dedication to them was unwavering, and he often expressed how proud he was of them. He also had a unique thrill for the Richard Petty driving experience, which showcased his adventurous spirit. Barry leaves behind a remarkable legacy of friendship, generosity, and kindness. His dedication to those he loved was a cornerstone of his character, which will forever be remembered by those who had the privilege of knowing him. He will be deeply missed, but his spirit will continue to live on through the many lives he touched. He is survived by his parents Larry and Sondra McMahon, daughter Taylor McMahon, son Connor (Alyson) McMahon, brother Kent (Anginette) McMahon, and five grandchildren Lillie, Liam, Lilian, Layla, Emmet. As they navigate this difficult time, they will carry with them the lessons, love, and memories he left behind. Barry's impact and influence were immense, and he will always be remembered with love and respect.
