About this title


Johnny and Me is a true story about my childhood experiences growing up in the northwest side of Chicago with John Wayne Gacy. This story details the everyday life experiences in my and Johnny?s homes. Details of our families are in the book along with the understanding of each of our parents as they raised us in the 1940?s and 1950?s. Many of these stories included are of my personal life before Johnny came on the scene in order to let the reader understand my point of view as my life unfolded. I have tried to show you the Johnny that I remember as a childhood friend and I hope that I have been as accurate as I can be on this subject.Various moments of joy, anger, and fear are shared between the two of us as we tried to have a normal childhood in the midst of anxiety and confusion that was brought on by our father?s abuse of alcohol and demanding personalities. The story portrays how our environments molded our characters and helped us to make choices in our adult lives. Details regarding our reactions to everyday events supply hints of how Johnny and I would function in our separate social worlds as we matured.Johnny?s possessive nature is described as we went playing normal childhood games and making new friends. His religious experiences are mentioned and a complete description of his controlling personality is shared as one of Johnny?s ways to cope with his surroundings. Other details of Johnny?s life are revealed such as his early desire to be in the spotlight of social applause.The book concludes with my personal emotions about a friend whose life went the wrong way. His childhood, along with my own, could have been different.

About the Author:

Barry was childhood friends with John Wayne Gacy and together they shared many adventures and struggles. Since John’s execution in 1994, Barry was encouraged by many to write about the Johnny that very few people had the opportunity to hear about. In writing this book, Barry hopes to shed some light on the other side of John Wayne Gacy and find spiritual closure for himself.

Barry has a vast library on the Presidents of the United States. Abraham Lincoln holds a special place in Barry’s heart as they both hail from the great state of Illinois.

Barry is retired and currently lives in Wyoming home of the “Daddy of ‘em all”, Frontier Days. He previously lived in Wyoming 36 years ago and loved the “Wild West” so much that he returned in 2005.

Barry has a great passion for trains and he visits the Union Pacific Railroad Yard and two of the few remaining steam locomotives that are in Wyoming. The newly restored train depot and museum are also places that Barry holds dear to his heart. He collects HO scale electric trains and has an elaborate HO train layout that is one of his greatest treasures.

Barry has a cat named Sharpy.
