Barry Franklin Horstman was born at home in Mellette County on June 2, 1942 to Frank and Majel (McManigal) Horstman. He attended grade school at Schmidt rural school in Mellette County and graduated from Winner High School in 1960.

On May 9, 1964, he married Carol Cole in Witten. They made their home on the farm in Mellette County and raised three sons. Barry loved to fish, particularly in his boat on the river with his boys. He especially looked forward to pheasant hunting season with family each year. Also, he enjoyed numerous elk hunting trips to Montana and Wyoming with the guys.

After moving to Winner in 1988, Barry still made daily trips back and forth to the farm and ranch. He remained active in farming and ranching until approximately 2015 when his health declined. Living in Winner until the time of his death, he continued to be interested in cattle and agriculture.

Grandpa Barry enjoyed spending time with his grandkids and made numerous trips to athletic events over the years. He will always be remembered for his sense of humor, loud laugh, and “colorful remarks”. Family members are quick to recall Barry’s unique voicemail messages.

He is survived by his wife Carol; sons: Bryan, Brad (Johnyne), and Blake (Cara); grandchildren: Brady (Casey), Chelsea (Danny), Barry Michael, Zachary, Baylee, and Kylie; great-grandchildren: Grace, Harper, Finley, and Jaxson; brother Ronnie (Bonnie), sister Donna (Alvin) New; and several nieces and nephews.
