About Barry:

Barry is the owner of PRO TOY, an automobile repair shop on the corner of Lovell Road & Pellissippi Parkway in West Knoxville. They specialize in Toyota & Lexus service & repair.  Barry runs the day-to-day operations while his wife Kim handles the bookkeeping and HR duties.  They have 2 children, Brock & Brylan and also have a small horse farm in West Knoxville.

Barry grew up and graduated high school in Lenoir City, he joined the Army shortly after graduating.  He served at Ft. Stewart, GA for a few years and then did a tour in South Korea.  After serving his time in the Army, he found himself back in Lenoir City where he worked during the day and went to school at night.  Not knowing what he wanted to do next, he took a job at West Side Honda detailing cars while he attended school.  After a year or so, they asked him if he would be interested in being a Service Writer for them.  This would mean more hours and not being able to attend night school, but the long term vision seemed more appealing.  He took the job and found out shortly that he wanted this to be his career.  He worked his way up to Service Manger at a local Honda/Nissan dealer then later onto a larger local Toyota dealer.  

Kim was pregnant with their son, Braden during Christmas of 2000 and had some difficulties which led to an emergency C-section.  Braden struggled and fought for four days, but the Lord called him home.  Through their pain and hurt and reflection on their lives is when PRO TOY was born.  They decided if they can go through that they can go through anything, so they started their own business.  PRO TOY sits on Braden Dickey Lane to honor him to this day.  They opened on September 4th, 2001.  A week later 9/11 happened and the phone didn't ring for two weeks. Of course they second guessed their decision, but through hard work and many blessings from God, it is still open today and trying to honor Him as well.  Barry is thankful and loves his customers, employees, and the community. 

Barry enjoys spending time with his family, Alabama football, boating, working out, and spending time on the farm.  He hates dancing due to his two left feet, but wants to help the horses and get his wife & daughter off his back!
