Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
William Barry Thrasher, age 57, of Atlanta, passed away on November 27, 2017. The son of William and Mary Thrasher, Barry was born and raised in Mableton, Georgia. After graduating from Pebblebrook High School, he pursued his love of music. Barry’s guitar playing was legendary and he played all over the world but always returned to Atlanta. Throughout the years he played with Tom Grose and The Varsity, Boss Tweed and for the past 25 years with The Mike Veal Band. He had a huge fan base and his playing and singing always drew a crowd that crossed generations.
Barry was a kind and generous soul. He had a huge passion for helping the homeless and was quick to buy a meal, empty his wallet or supply warm clothes to anyone in need. He is survived by the love of his life, Lisa Holland, siblings; Bobby Thrasher, Steve Thrasher (Marti), Barbara Carter (Alan) and several nieces and nephews.
His memorial service will take place at First United Methodist Church of Lawrenceville on Sunday, December 3, 2017 at 4:00 PM, with a reception immediately following in the Family Life Center. The family is being assisted by Georgia Cremation, 3570 Buford Hwy, #202, Duluth, GA 30096 (678) 584-0914.
