Message from Tom Barley’s Family

April 1, 2020


With great sadness we announce the loss of our beloved grandfather, father, and husband Thomas Terry Barley. On March 24 Tom passed away in Phoenix after a long health battle. So many of you have already reached out and we are grateful for your kindness and support. We are so proud of Tom and everything that he brought to all of our lives. Given the unfortunate global circumstances, we are planning to delay our celebration of Tom’s life. At some point we intend to lay him to rest at Woodlawn Cemetery in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and we will keep you informed of that date.

In lieu of flowers, the family prefers donations in Tom’s honor to be made to the employee relief fund set up to help support the staff at Solemn Oath Brewery who lost their jobs during the coronavirus pandemic.

You can contribute here:

Or you can mail a check to Lynda Barley at 1625 W Winter Drive Phoenix, AZ 85021. Please add “For Tom” to the memo section and we will contribute it to the Solemn Oath employee relief fund on your behalf.

We also ask in the coming days and weeks that you please send along any photographs or stories about Tom via email to

so that we may collect and share in your memories of him.

Please feel free to share this message with anyone you’d like. We love you all, we are so thankful for your support, and we look forward to celebrating Tom’s life with you soon. 

The Barleys
