Barry M. Kuhl

April 29, 1934 – November 9, 2020


Barry M. Kuhl born April 29, 1934 passed away peacefully on November 9, 2020.  He was born in Omaha, NE to Maxine and John Kuhl.  During high school he worked at a local shoe store selling shoes and lettered in both tennis and music.  In 1952, Barry graduated from Tech High School and enrolled at University of Nebraska where he studied business for two years.  He then went to work for Northern Natural Gas as an accountant.  Barry later transitioned to the human resource department in compensation and benefits where he remained until the company, later known as Enron, moved operations to Houston, TX.  He remained in Omaha and worked for several other local companies before retiring from Clarkson Hospital in 1998.

Barry and Virginia met at the youth group at church.  They were married on October 9, 1954 at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Omaha, Nebraska.  They have three children, four grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

Barry enjoyed water skiing, fishing, tennis, golf, cooking, playing cards, working in his garden and singing in the church choir.  He loved to tell stories about his childhood and experiences in life.  Barry was a loving husband, father and grandpa.  Barry was also a big Husker football fan.  So much so that he and his wife Virginia held season tickets for over 50 years.  As much as he loved these things, he always said his greatest love was for his family.

Barry is survived by his wife, Virginia; daughter, Lori Baldwin (Alan); son, Rob Kuhl (Lisa); grandchildren: Tyler Kuhl, Emily Wiemers (Terran), Brooklyn Baldwin and Ashley Bush (Corey); along with several nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his son, Gordon; mother, Maxine Harris; stepfather, Don Harris; and father, John Kuhl.

Barry loved life, his family and friends.  He will be truly missed by all who knew him and loved him.
