Barry S. Grenyo

in-loving-memory

Barry S. Grenyo, age 65 of Mission, KS, died Friday December 28th, 2018, peacefully in his home from natural causes. 

Barry was born on August 18th, 1953 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  He grew up in Wichita where he graduated from Wichita West High School.  After high school he started a 40+ year career in the grocery business.  He loved working in the customer service business because it allowed him to interact with people on a daily business.   The greatest pride Barry had in his work had been the last 10+ years he was at the Hy-Vee grocery store in Mission.  His infectious personality was on display each time he was in the store.  He so enjoyed his job with Hy-Vee and more importantly the people and customers he interacted with each day. 

Barry was an avid sports fan, specifically the Chiefs, Royals and the University of Kansas basketball team.  He would have many opportunities over the years to attend games to each of his favorite teams.  He so enjoyed being able to spend the day at Truman Sports Complex whether it was watching the Chiefs or seeing the Royals play.  The greatest enjoyment for Barry came each time he was able to watch his grandson or granddaughter play one of their baseball/softball games or soccer matches.

He was preceded in death by his Mother Adelda Grenyo. 

Barry is survived by his daughter Jayne Grenyo (Jeremy) of Lee’s Summit, Father George of Wichita, brothers Ed of Lawrence and Patrick (Rhonda) of Fargo, ND; grandchildren Gavin, Zoey, Olivia and Benjamin all of Lee’s Summit, other family Jessica Moos (John) of Lee’s Summit and extended family. 

Service:

A Celebration of Life Service will be held Sunday January 5th, 2019 at the Sylvester Powell Community Center in Mission, KS from 12pm to 5pm.  

Contributions:

Family asked in lieu of flowers please make a contribution to one of Hy-Vee sponsored charities.

    I was so shocked and sad to hear today about the passing of Barry. I know I’m finding out late as it is already January 15th but I did not hear until today. One of the employees told me. It’s hard to believe that someone can be gone that quickly.
    For what seems like 15 years I’ve been buying my groceries at Mission Hy-Vee and Barry has always been there, checking me out, making chitchat about the Royals or the Chiefs, or just whatever in life.
    I know he was looking forward to retirement someday. It just goes to show you how quickly life can be taken away. How fragile life is. We will miss you. I’m very thankful for the good conversations and the smiles and the laughs.
    I wish I could’ve come to your ‘celebration of life’ but I didn’t even know that you had passed. Barry, May you Rest In Peace with God and Jesus the Savior. Amen,
