Barry Craig Sydenstricker

     Barry Craig Sydenstricker, age 67, of Landenberg, Pennsylvania, passed away on December 27, 2023, at his son’s home in Oxford, PA. He was the husband of the late Brenda (Foulk) Sydenstricker.

Above all, Barry was a jack-of-all-trades and could fix and/or build just about anything. 

     A family man, Barry was a beloved patriarch whose warmth and kindness created a haven of love. He will be missed for his kindness, love, hugs, stories, wisdom, and lessons he shared. He will be remembered for his big smile, his jokes and sense of humor, his delicious cooking, his fun-loving personality, and his love for music.
