Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 24, 1959
Crane County
Texas, USA
Death: Aug. 24, 2012

Ralph Frank Barrett III "Jaybird" was born on January 24, 1959 in Crane, Texas to Betty Louise Barrett and Ralph Frank Barrett Jr. He departed this life on August 24, 2012. Jay married Derindia Lang on February 13, 1981.

Jay worked as a pump mechanic in the oilfield for 35 years. He spent countless hours on the ballfield, and loved nothing more than watching his kids and grandkids play sports. Jaybird had a way of making every kid he coached feel special and like they were capable of anything. Our father taught us to never ever give up. He left a special place in the hearts of all who knew him, and he never met a stranger.

Jay is survived by his four children: Elizabeth "Lib" Brakefield and husband Tommy, Brock "Brocko" Barrett and wife Gena, Aury "R-Dude" Barrett and fiancée Nikki and Seth "Sether" Barrett and his six grandchildren: Kale and Hayden Brakefield, Cache and Bridge Barrett, Creed Barrett, and Gray Barrett. He is also survived by two sisters, Lynn Davis and Lisa Shawley and his nieces: Sunny and Allison Davis, Sarah Owens and Jacob and Emma Shawley and one great-niece, J'Lyn Joe Owens. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ralph and Betty Barrett.

A memorial service for Mr. Barrett is set for two o'clock p.m. on Wednesday August 29, 2012 at the First Baptist Church, located at 401 S.W. 3rd in Lindsay, Oklahoma with Pastor Elaine Howsley officiating and eulogy by Seth Barrett. The service is under the direction of B.G. Boydston Funeral Home of Lindsay, Oklahoma. Condolences for the family may be made online at
