"We cannot begin to describe the pain and heartbreak that comes with losing our only child," the Barrys' statement read. "Our son was a kind soul full of life and love for his family and friends. Our family would greatly appreciate your thoughts and prayers, and would respectfully ask for privacy as we mourn the loss of our child and begin to understand a world without his laughter and love in our lives."
