Barry Todd Chaney was born to Richard and Patricia Chaney on January 14, 1962 in York, Nebraska. He passed away on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 in Geneva, Nebraska at the age of 56 years. He was the last of four children born in the family. Barry grew up around Geneva, Nebraska in his family’s farmhouse where many memories were shared between all. He could be found working around the farm with animals and tinkering on equipment. He was married on July 23, 1982 from which his 5 children were born. Barry worked with his brother, Doug, at his trucking company, Chaney Express. While trucking though, he still spent a great deal of time working on the farm. If you were a close friend of Barry’s, it was not unusual to have been identified by a nickname. All who were around him got to enjoy his contagious smile, personality, and sense of humor. He relished the simple life and remained on the farm where he raised cattle and farmed the land, with help from his youngest son. He would often joke that “he was married to the cattle” with the demand and attention required. Because of that, you usually didn’t find him venturing too far from the farm, but he did enjoy spending time around his friends in neighboring towns. Barry was a once in a lifetime friend; once you were in (and earned your nickname), he was there for you. Words cannot express how much Barry will be missed, but the memories and laughter he imprinted will be carried with us. Barry is preceded in death by his father, Richard Chaney; nephew, Jerrod Chaney. He is survived in death by his mother, Patricia Chaney of Syracuse; his brothers, Mike & Katie Chaney of Geneva, Nebraska, Doug & Jeanine Chaney of Geneva, Nebraska; his sister, Denise & Larry Paul of Lincoln, Nebraska; his children, Jill Chaney of Lincoln, Nebraska, Kelsey Chaney of Lincoln, Nebraska, Austin Chaney of Axtell, Nebraska, Paige and Logan Harre of Exeter, Nebraska, Cody Chaney of Grafton, Nebraska; his nephews and nieces, Brett Chaney of Geneva, Nebraska, Drew Chaney of Geneva, Nebraska, Mallory Paul of Lincoln, Nebraska, Jason Smith of Lincoln, Nebraska, Michelle Smith of Lincoln, Nebraska; and nieces, nephews, aunts, and uncles.
