Barrett II, Glenn Dean

January 12, 1956 — July 16, 2021

Dean was born January 12th, 1956 in Kansas City, MO to Patricia (Young) Barrett and Glenn Dean Barrett. The third of five children, Dean was graced with two sisters, Anne & Sherry and two brothers, Bruce and Ben.

Dean was a world traveler early in life as the family followed his father’s career living in Australia, England, Algeria and Switzerland. He often talked about the boarding school in Switzerland where he was able to ski the slopes. The Barrett family settled near Grandview, MO where Dean graduated from Grandview High School in 1975.

In 1980, Dean began his career with Hodgdon Powder Company at Pyrodex in Herington, Kansas. Soon after, he met Lora (Hoover) Brown and her two children, Tyler & Amy. They were married the following January and added a third child to the family with the arrival of Melissa. Dean enjoyed spending time with his family - riding motorcycles & mini bikes. He was at every sporting event supporting Tyler, Amy & Melissa. Summers routinely meant trips to Silver Dollar City and Roaring River.

Dean had a great imagination - especially for kids. One of his favorite past times was lining the gravel driveway with black powder and igniting it for all the neighborhood children to see. Other times, he would instigate a monster tag game or show everyone some silly trick.

During those years, Dean was Worship Leader at his church in Herington where he formed countless friendships.

In 2007, he moved to Abilene, KS and married Bertina Bayes. Together they adopted their dog, Roxy.

Beginning the next chapter in is life, Dean retired from Hodgdon in 2011 and returned to Kansas City where he lived with his brother Ben. Dean was hired as the manager of Lake Lotawana Sportsman Club. That’s where, he met Andi Albright. Together, with Roxy, they moved onto the property to become caretakers until his retirement in 2018. Inseparable since 2014, Dean and Andi enjoyed every aspect of life. Together, they bought a house in Belton, where they worked together to make it a home.

Dean still worked every Sunday at The Saddle and Sirloin Club. His favorite past time was collecting guns & reading his many Roman & British battle-scene, history books. He recently connected with a genealogy group to learn more about his family tree.

Dean was a member of The Kampers, ELKS Lodge 2088, St. Paul’s United Methodist Church and the Taco Tuesday Gang. Dean held a lifetime membership with the NRA and an active member of the Valley Meat 1 Trap Team.

On Friday, July 16th, Dean sustained a head injury when he fell off a ladder. Dean passed away at Research Medical Center and was received into the Lord’s arms.

Dean’s made friends everywhere he went. He always opened up his heart to new people. He was king of the random text message - which many looked forward to receiving. Dean was always the first one to give you a hug and tell you he loved you.

Dean will be greatly missed by many.

Melissa, my heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of you. I cannot express how sorry I am for the loss of your Dad. I wish I could be there with all of you. I considered your Dad a friend and always enjoyed visiting with him when I saw him. He was so proud of all of you! May God's healing hand envelope you in peace. Love you all!
